About this recipe:Full of flavour, melt in the mouth and wonderfully crisp. Taste truly indulgent but are quite virtuous with less fat and sugar than most and complex carbohydrates for a lower GI score:-) I came up with this recipe to help friends with morning sickness as ginger is a great help for anyone suffering nausea.
Melt the butter in a pan - do this gently and switch off once just melted.
Put all ingredients except butter and golden syrup in a mixing bowl. Pour in melted butter and golden syrup.
Stir to combine all ingredients - it will hold together.
For best results, use a desert spoon to divide out heaped spoonfulls. Roll into a ball in your hand and then gently press down in the middle - don't go mad; they only need to be about 5 to 6cm across. Don't over handle as they'll do their own thing when you cook them anyway:-) Place on ungreased nonstick baking trays. Leave lots of room between them as they will spread out a lot!
Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 10 minutes.
I used oatbran not medium oatmeal, delicious. I also added 'some' chopped stem ginger (just what I felt was enough), which added a softer edge as I like gooey bits. I used the baking instructions from another recipe as there is no temp advice. Seemed to work fine. My friend and I scoffed the lot anyway - 21 May 2012
