These Oats and Raisin cookies make the perfect tea time or lunch box treat. Easy to make and quick to bake these cookies are irresistibly delicious.
Besides making a great lunch box snack which I thought was a better idea, my husband decided that this makes a perfect breakfast with a glass of milk. I thought it was a wee bit too sweet for breakfast but he disagreed and ate them first thing in the morning anyway. So whose side are you on with this? Breakfast or lunch box snack? Choose wisely now...wisely meaning me!?
This recipe has golden syrup and brown sugar that gives these cookies its sweet taste. The combination of the syrup and brown sugar is responsible for the chewy texture of these cookies. Oh and the raisins also add to the sweetness to some degree. If the stores in your area do not keep golden syrup, a good substitute will be corn syrup. It will taste just as good with this substitution. So you see this little snack is full of different textures from the chewiness to the crunchiness of the oats and desiccated coconut. Really amazing.
So whether you are going to enjoy this as a tea time snack, breakfast or raw cookie dough( though I strongly suggest you bake it first) ?these little delights make a great treat!
