175g lactose/dairy free butter

175g demerara sugar

100g maple syrup

85g  gluten free plain flour

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

250g porridge oats

1 tsp ground cinnamon

100g chopped and stem ginger (optional)

2 tbsp boiling water

1 medium egg, beaten

Serves - 4


Heat the oven to 180C/fan160C/gas 4. Line several baking sheets with baking parchment or non-stick sheets.

Warm the lactose free butter, sugar and maple syrup in a large saucepan over a medium heat until the butter has melted.

Stir in the gluten free  flour, bicarbonate of soda, oats, cinnamon and ginger, then the water and finally the egg. Leave to cool until easy to handle.

With dampened hands, shape the mixture into 18 large balls, then flatten them onto the baking sheets – allowing plenty of space for spreading – and bake for 15-20 mins until golden.

(This will give a soft, chewy cookie. For a crisper one, reduce the heat to 160C/fan140C/gas 3 and bake for a further 5-10 mins.)   

Allow the cookies to cool on the trays briefly, then lift onto to a cooling rack. Will keep in an airtight container, separated with baking parchment, for up to 1 week.
