New Mumma Biscuits

6 Jun

I went to see this little guy yesterday. Eight days old. Precious, right? I won’t say the same for his older brother, same age as The Berry. He’s making sure no one forgets he’s number 1.

But that’s another story.

The beautiful mumma of this little bundle wasn’t particularly keen on hanging at the maternity ward and checked out after only a night in hospital. She’s happy to be home but pretty damn tired. So some sustenance was definitely required! These bikkies (cookies, whatever), are basically just Anzacs, but not too squashed so they stay soft in the middle. They’re full of oats, which are great for breastfeeding and add more illusions of wholesomeness (I’m all for illusions). Plus there’s nothing tricky in the recipe so you can whip ’em up in a flash, no special shopping.

New Mumma Biscuits

150g unsalted butter, chopped
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
3-4 tablespoons golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda in a tablespoon of water

Preheat oven to 170C

Start melting butter in a small saucepan.
Mix flour, oats and coconut in a large bowl.
Once butter is melted, add golden syrup and bicarb (it will go a bit foamy so watch out)
Pour butter mix into bowl with dry ingredients, and stir it up (toddlers are helpful at this point!)

Form into  balls, flatten slightly and place on a baking tray.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, then pull the tray out and let bikkies cool for a while before moving them.

If you want chewier, sweeter biscuits, reduce golden syrup to 2 tablespoons and add 1/2 cup of caster sugar.

    Finally got around to making these this arvo, though a little miss added another half cup of flour when I was concentrating on the golden syrup.
