  • 150 g Plain Flour
  • 150 g Caster Sugar
  • 120 g Rolled Oats
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 150 g Vegan Butter Spread
  • 1 tbsp Golden Syrup (Maple or Agave is also fine)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/350F, and grease a couple of baking sheets (baking parchment or greaseproof paper will work too).

  2. Mix all your dry ingredients into a bowl. So that's: flour, sugar, oats, and bicarb.

  3. Put the vegan butter and syrup in a saucepan and melt on a medium heat. Vegan spread doesn't usually go translucent like traditional butter, but once it's melted to a liquid with the syrup then it's good to go.

  4. But your buttery syrup into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix together to a soft dough.

  5. Take a piece of dough and roll into a ball. You're looking at a size between a walnut and a golf ball.

  6. Place the dough balls onto baking trays, leaving space between them as they will spread.

  7. Bake for 10 minutes and then check on them. They are done when they're a nice deep golden colour.
