Golden Noms

These Golden Noms, like most of the Nom Nom cookies, are very easy to make, bake & eat. They are great for lunch boxes for little kids & with a cuppa for the big kids.


125 g Butter (melted)

150 g Dates (chopped)

50 g Golden syrup

75 g Brown sugar

200 g Bakers' Magic Gluten free flour

100 g Buckwheat flakes*

1/2 tsp Baking powder

 Buckwheat flakes are available from Sunnybrook Health & Healing. They have an online store & ship products worldwide.


Preheat oven to 170 C.

Line 2 trays with baking paper.

Melt the butter, mix in the golden syrup to the melted butter.

Chop the dates & put them in the melted butter/golden syrup mix.

Stir to combine.

Mix together the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. 

Pour the melted butter mix into the dry mix & stir to combine.

Squash the mixture together with your hands. 

Take a large teaspoon of the mixture, shape it into a ball & put it on the tray.

Squash the ball a little.

Bake at 170 C for approximately 13 mins.
