I am having cravings right now for all the things that are bad for me. I could pretty much consume anything comforty. I was in TK Maxx earlier and the candles, oh my, they smelled like autumnal food in a jar….. I wanted to lick them all, I mean clearly I didn’t – store security may have dragged me out by my Jute reusable bag!
Not sure why but oaty things and gingery things remind me of this time of year when things are starting to get cosy, What better then to combine warm, fiery ginger with filling rolled oats to make biscuits.
Little hands can get stuck in an enjoy making these too, I often measure things out and get Poppy to put them in the mixer or if I am not struggling with the idea of mess everywhere, let her do it by hand.

10 chunks of crystallised stem ginger
1 standard packet of chocolate chips
1 teaspoon of cinamon
1 tablespoon of ground ginger
A big pinch of salt
200g self raising flour
200g rolled oats
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
200g butter at room temperature
200g brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
Chop the ginger into small pieces
Place all the ingredients together in a bowl and either use a stand mixer or mix by hand
Scoop teaspoons of mixture up and roll into ball shapes, place on a greased baking tray. Make sure they are not too close to each other as they will spread.
Bake in the oven for 10 mins, check and carry on until they are a light golden colour. Mine usually take anything between 10 and 15 mins, not sure why it varies. But there is nothing worse then an overcooked biscuit!
