Diabetic Golden Oat Cookies

My mother-in-law Amy, who is diabetic is always making these cookies and I have to admit that after tasting them, they have become a favourite of mine as well. When Amy makes them, she cuts down on the amount of sugar and margarine in them but I make them just as the recipe says. You can always adjust it to suit your own taste but they are quite yummy and have a low GI. They also only have 0.4g saturated fat and 288 kilojoules(69 calories) per cookie. If you follow weight watchers they only have 1 point so you can easily indulge in a couple of these with your cup of coffee and still stay on your eating plan.


1 cup plain flour (I use wholemeal)
1 cup raw rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon bi-carb soda
5 tablespoons low fat margarine
2 tablespoons golden syrup
cooking spray


Preheat oven to 150 C in fan forced and 160 C in normal oven. In a large mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredients. Melt margarine with golden syrup and then add to the dry mixture. Combine ingredients together well. Spray an oven tray with cooking spray and roll about 1 teaspoon of mixture into a ball and place on the tray. Repeat with the rest and when on the tray, press out with the back of a fork to flatten. Allow space for the biscuits to spread a little when cooking. Bake for about 20 minutes and remove from oven and let cool on tray. This should make at least 24 cookies.
