These cookies are good for pretending to be healthy and virtuous when you want to bake something delicious. These are great for whipping up a quick little something because they take almost no effort. As you can see, there’s nothing really virtuous about them.
I added the seeds myself, and if you don’t have craisins, use raisins or whatever dried fruit you like. Mix and match the muesli bit for maximal enjoyment. I also reduced the sugar content from the original recipe (which at 220g seemed excessive to the point of obscenity).
2 tspn cinnamon
55g chopped dried apricots
70g flaked almonds
35g mixed seeds
2 tbspns golden syrup
½ tspn bicarbonate of soda
1 tbspn boiling water
Put the dry ingredients in a bowl, keeping back a few flaked almonds for decoration later.
Melt the butter and golden syrup together.
Add combined soda and boiling water. Combine the wet and dry ingredients with a wooden spoon until thoroughly introduced to each other.
Roll into golf-ball sized balls, sprinkle a couple of flaked almonds on top, and bake on a lined tray at 150C for about 15-20 mins.
