Day off

My perfect monday. Baking these:

Oat and seed cookies.
Set oven to 190 degrees or gas mk 5
lightly grease baking tray.

250g self raising flour
75g whole rolled porridge oats
175g soft light brown sugar
Handful of sesame seeds
handful of sunflower seeds
good pinch of salt
125g unsalted butter cubed
2 x tbl spoon golden syrup
3-4 tbl spoon milk

In a bowl mix together the flour, oats, sugar, seeds and salt.
Then rub in the butter so mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Stir in syrup and enough milk to form a stiff dough. Knead well.
Form dough into small balls then flatten onto baking tray with a fork.
Bake in batches for 10-15 minutes until golden.
Once cooked transfer to a wire rack to cool and crisp.

Talking with a friend, pouring over interior magazines, taking tea. I even made a sale on etsy. How was your monday?

Thanks for the recipe. I´m definitely going to try these, I just love cookies with nuts and seeds, so I´m sure they will be consumed very quickly. ; )

That picture on the right - it's Edinburgh, isn't it? I used to see that clock tower from my window. How wonderful to come across it on your blog.

That first pic is such a cozy little scene. These sound really delicious and, fortunately, more on the healthy side :)

Congrats on the Etsy sale! Hoorah!
