I love ginger biscuits, and I was casting around for something to make the other day to put in lunchboxes and came up with these – not too gingery, but gingery-ish. Enough for Pink, and with all those oats, practically a health food...
Oaty, Gingery-ish Cookies
125g unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon of honey, 100g caster sugar, 75g soft light brown sugar, 1 medium egg, lightly beaten, 100g porridge oats, 150g plain flour, ½ teaspoon ground ginger, ½ teaspoon baking powder, pinch of sea salt.
Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper and pre-heat the oven to 1900C/gas 5.Mix the sugars in a bowl. Melt the butter and honey together in a small pan, tip into the sugar and, using a wooden spoon, beat well. Beat in the egg, stir in the oats and then sift in the flour, ginger and baking powder. Stir everything together, then use a dessert spoon to dollop the mixture onto the lined baking trays. Leave a good 4 cms or so between each dollop because the mixture does spread.
Bake for 10-15 minutes till the biscuits are turning golden brown, then once out of the oven, leave on the tray for a few minutes to firm up. You can then lift the biscuits off the tray using the baking parchment lining to put them on cooling racks.
Great in lunchboxes, with a cuppa, for breakfast??
