Gradually getting better, made biscuits!

Back to work this week - just 2 days but they felt really long....back still a bit dodgy but doing lot more excercises and walking about so that helps. Have stopped my night time meds and halved the day time ones so getting there.....

Did an on-line shop this weeks - really big one which was £81.

Made biscuits this morning - known as Twinks hobnobs (got the recipe from Twins at - they are lovely! actually got 56 biscuits from the mix but I might have made them too big so will make them smaller next time. Next time I might add ginger or even omit some marg and put peanut butter in.....

8oz SR flour
8oz sugar
8oz oats
8oz margarine
1 tblesp golden syrup
1 tblesp hot water
1/2 tsp bicarb

Melt all ingredients in pan and stir well - I had to add more flour as the mix was a bit too sticky to roll into small balls in your hand. Put balls on baking trays and flatten with fork - could for 10-12 mins on gas mark 4


  1. I love Twinks' - they always disappear whenever I make them. :)

  2. Glad you are on the mend. The biscuits sound good but no golden syrup in my part of the world.

  3. oh yum you have reminded me about Twink's hobnobs - must have a go at making those again!

  4. I love twinks but have to limit how often I make them ... Not good for the hips ! Try them with added coconut and chopped glacé cherries yum yum
