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.

Makes: 15 15 to 16 large biscuits

  • 90g unsalted butter
  • 100g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 100g medium oatmeal
  • 70g muscovado sugar or dark brown soft sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:10min cooling  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan - do this gently and switch off once just melted.
  3. Put all ingredients except butter and golden syrup in a mixing bowl. Pour in melted butter and golden syrup.
  4. Stir to combine all ingredients - it will hold together.
  5. 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!
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 10 minutes.

Really easy, really tasty. Would definitely recommend! - 12 Jul 2011


Iadded chopped stem ginger to give them a little more zing, you didn't mention oven temp so cooked @ 180 for 10 mins and they came out ok - 20 May 2012


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
