Believe it or not these cookies started as ‘oatmeal biscuits’! I’ve not been very organised in the kitchen recently, starting to bake or cook a recipe and then realising half way through that I don’t have all the ingredients I need!

So this it how the story begins… I got the idea in my head that I wanted to make some wholesome biscuits, no doubt because of all the lovely ones that Dimple over at Shivaay Delights has been posting recently! You’re such a bad influence young lady! πŸ˜‰

So upon realising I had no golden syrup required for the recipe, I found some maple syrup and agave syrup so bunged that into the mixing bowl instead. So that’s a fairly non-recipe destroying Β substitute right? Oh, but there is more… I then went to grab the bag of oats and found there was none! How unprepared can a cook be?!

Being unwilling to go out to the shops to buy the oats (it was rainy and miserable outside) I decided to press on ahead and make the biscuits using only self raising flour, but throwing in some mixed seeds and pumpkin seeds that I found in the baking cupboard.

After 15 minutes in a hot oven, I ended up with Maple Syrup and Pumpkin Seed Cookies! Ta Da! Like magic I have created a new recipe by accident and they tasted pretty good too… I’ve called them cookies as they were chewy inside but crisp on the outside. The different syrups helped to create a lovely rich caramel flavour and the seeds added a nutty taste and extra bite to each mouthful.

I won’t post the recipe since I was making it up as I went along, so don’t actually know quantities of the ingredients I used!

So the lesson learned is no matter what is going wrong with your cooking or baking, there is always a way to rescue the recipe! No need to give up and waste all the ingredients (and hard work!) half way through as a good cook can improvise! πŸ™‚

Happy experimenting folks!
