Sieve plain flour and bicarbonate of soda into bowl. Mix in the rolled aats and the extras you want. Mix thoroughly in the bowl
In a small saucepan add butter, sugar, syrup and 1 tablespoon of water and gently heat until they're combined together.
Add to the dry ingredients in the bowl and stir until well mixed.
From the bowl pick up some of the mix and form into little balls about the size of a walnut.
Put the balls of mix onto the baking trays and put in oven for 16 -18 minutes.
Take out of oven when they're a medium toasted colour and leave on trays or wire rack to cool down. Then transfer to an airtight container.
I'm not a tree recommends melting a bar of dairy milk chocolate to give the biscuits. Next time I think I will.
