  2. Melt the margarine, sugar and syrup gently. Add the oats, flour, ground ginger and stem ginger.
  3. Put in heaps onto the prepared baking sheets and flatten with a fork dipped in flour. They don't spread very much, so you can put them fairly close together.

Made these today. very crumbly could use double the amount of golden syrup. I also used 2 globes of stem ginger 4x the amount although i think it could still do with more. It was very tasty - 18 Feb 2013
