Sift together the flour and bicarbonate of soda; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, dark brown soft sugar and caster sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually stir in the sifted mixture, then mix in the oats, cherries, chocolate chips and chopped Daim bars until evenly distributed. Divide the mixture in to 3 portions and form them into logs, about 5cm in diameter. Wrap in greaseproof paper and refrigerate or freeze until firm.
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease baking trays or line them with parchment. Slice logs into 2cm thick slices. Place the cookies 5cm apart onto the prepared baking trays.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking tray for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
I was on a 'use up whatevers in the cupboard' drive when I made these so I used chunks of milk chocolate, 100g of glacé cherries and made it up with 50g raisins as well as the oats (hiding in a cupboard) and Daim bars and everyone agrees they are absolutely divine! A word of warning; they spread like hell so make sure they're several miles apart! - 19 Aug 2013
