  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, 350°F, gas mark 4). Line the flat baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Step 2:

    Place the butter, sugar and syrup in a large pan and warm over a moderate heat until the sugar is melted.

  3. Step 3:

    Remove from the heat and add the flour, bicarbonate of soda, oats, cinnamon, raisins, dried cranberries and ginger.

  4. Step 4:

    Add the egg and water and mix thoroughly. Leave until cool enough to handle.

  5. Step 5:

    Dampen your hands and shape the mix into 18 flattened balls. Place on the baking sheet allowing plenty of room for the biscuits to spread. You may need to bake in batches.

  6. Step 6:

    Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown and still a little soft. Leave to cool and serve.
