Flapjack Cookies - 2pp each

So I tried some baking and made some guilt free treats to bring to my book club. So here goes the recipe:

Calorie controlled spray oil
75g Low fat spread
1tbsp golden syrup
0.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1tbsp boiling water
50g plain flour
100g porridge oats
40g sugar

Melt the spread and the golden syrup in a pan.
Mix the bicarbonate of soda with the water and add to pan causing it to foam slightly.
Mix in the flour oats and sugar and stir until mixed well.
Use a tablespoon measure and dollop spoonfulls of the mixture onto trays sprayed with spray oil. Flatten the cookies with the back of a spoon and make sure they have room to spread. Makes 16 cookies
Bake in a preheated over (gas mark4/180 degrees/fan 160 degrees) for 8 minutes until golden brown.
Cool the cookies on a tray for about 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack when they have firmed up slightly.

I was meant to take a photo fo the end result, but I forgot and they went down a treat at book club so have none left. I would definitely make them again, and next time I may add some fruit in for variation, some grated apple, or chopped blueberries or raspberries. They prob wouldn't keep very long, but would be good when you know you are going somewhere or having people over!
