Yesterday my little grandson (7 now, not so little) popped in with his mum and dad. That’s not unusual in itself, but I wasn’t expecting them, so I was busy working away editing video clips to post on Youtube for our Bake Club subscribers.

A plate with Cranberry Golden Syrup cookies

Kids these days watch Youtube rather than cartoons??? Go figure.  Anyway, he thinks I’m famous now. Hahaha.  Don’t tell him I’m not, he thinks everyone in the world has seen me now.  It’s even funnier because his dad is on Youtube all the time doing his motorsport stuff and fabrication and he didn’t know that either.  He’s so proud of us.

A pile of Cranberry Vanilla Golden Syrup Oat Cookies

After looking at a few of our videos, he decided he wanted to be in a video too.  I told him we had to do something that was worth putting up there (none of that crazy stuff he watches. LOL) I didn’t say that aloud.

A tray of raw cranberry Golden syrup cookies ready to be baked.

We sat down and wrote a recipe together.  We went into the pantry where he picked out cranberries, golden syrup, vanilla and oats and we came up with these.  I often make him vanilla porridge he loves it.  I won’t bore you with the whole video; he has his own private link.  But, just to prove to him that we put some of it up here in this post I’ll add a bit after the recipe.  😉

Ingredients

  • 270 gm rolled oats
  • 225 gm plain flour
  • 150 gm caster sugar
  • 140 gm dried cranberries washed and soaked in boiling water
  • 1/2 tsp Bec's warming spice or 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 90 gm golden syrup
  • 125 gm unsalted butter chopped into cubes
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda baking soda
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

Instructions

Thermomix Method

  • 1 Preheat oven to 160°C.
  • 2 If the cranberries are huge chop in half before soaking then set aside
  • 3 Weigh the oats, flour, sugar and spice in the TM bowl and mix to combine 5 seconds / reverse speed + 3 then remove from the bowl and set aside
  • 4 Weigh the golden syrup, butter and vanilla into the TM bowl and set for 5 minutes / 70 °c / speed 1
  • 5 Drain the cranberries in a colander
  • 6 When the butter and golden syrup have finished warming add the bicarb into the syrup and all the other ingredients and set for 20 seconds / reverse speed plus 5 Check to see if you have to scrape down the sides and repeat for 3 seconds.
  • 7 Roll into 30 g balls and place onto baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper. Allow enough room for them to spread and bake for around 12 - 15 minutes or until deep golden brown.
  • 8 When you remove them from the oven, they will feel very soft, but as long as they're deep golden brown, they'll firm up when they cool. Leave them on the baking tray until cool enough to handle then remove onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
