Hungry buck cookies

Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is just around the corner, bake off is in full swing and it looks like we are due some good weather this weekend.

This week the BBC’s popular show ‘The Great British bake off’ held their biscuit week, showing off the bakers skills in three specific challenges that incorporate a wide range of biscuit making techniques to show that they deserve another week on the show. My fiancé adores the program and as she is a Teacher, she has time off around the time that the show airs for her summer break, so she likes to bake on ‘Bake off’ day something that relates to the corresponding week on the show.

This week I was treated to a chunky, oat biscuit that was sweet, nutty and filling. Great with a coffee first thing at work!

Heres the recipe for you to try making our new favourite biscuit at home…


125g butter, Softened, plus extra to grease
100 g soft light brown sugar
50 g golden syrup
140 g plain flour
1 medium egg
100g large rolled oats
1 tsp ground cinnamon
75 g pecan halves, roughly chopped to decorate
40 g Dark chocolate, melted


Preheat oven to 170°C (150°C fan) mark 3. Lightly grease two large baking sheets. In a large bowl, mix together the cookie ingredients until well combined. Put large tablespoonfuls of the mixture on to the prepared baking sheets, spacing them well apart. Bake for 12-15min until golden. Leave to cool for 10min on the baking sheet, then drizzle with melted chocolate. Serve immediately, or leave to set first.


And that is how easy it is! Seriously! Enjoy you weekends all.
