Hob nob recipe
240g self-raising flour
240g sugar240g porridge oats
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp hot water
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Combine the flour, oats and sugar in a bowl. Add the margarine, syrup and water in a pan and heat gently until the margarine melts and the golden syrup becomes liquid. Take off the heat and stir-in the bicarbonate of soda then add to the dry ingredient mix and stir thoroughly to combine.
Tear off pieces of the dough and shape into smallish balls. Flatten these slightly and place about 5cm apart on a lightly-greased baking tray. Place in an oven pre-heated to 180°C and bake for about 15 minutes, or until a nice golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes on the baking tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
if you want to have them with chocolate just melt a bit and drizzle over the still warm Hobnobs
This recipe makes a lot ( around 30) so if there are only 2 of you, like Lloyd and I, then you could half it. I didn't and we'll be eating them for weeks!
