Sweet Oat Biscuits on a Hilltop

12 Jan

The Washer Up has been nagging me to make Oat Biscuits for ages. He used to make them with his mum when he was little. I’ve never made them before. They are similar to Flapjacks I suppose but not as chewy and a little healthier. We all crave something sweet sometimes and these biscuits are better than most and because of the oats you are full for longer. Great as a quick grab & go breakfast or as a snack to keep your sugar levels up on a long walk uphill…………..

They are really easy to make, perfect for kids and big kids to make together. They remind me of chunkier Hobnobs and I used to love Hobnobs. The Washer Up is very pleased with them too, phew!!

I got the recipe from a lovely blog called Gin & Crumpets don’t you just love that name….

Sweet Oat Biscuits

makes about 12-14, vegetarian

  • 200 gr rolled porridge oats
  • 110 gr room temp. butter plus extra for greasing
  • 75 gr brown sugar
  • 110 gr plain flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • about 3 tbsp whole milk

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking parchment and rub it with butter. Put a frying pan over a medium heat and toast the oats in the dry pan until golden and toasty, about 5 – 10 minutes.  Beat the butter with the sugar until creamy then sieve in the flour and pinch of salt. Add the oats and milk and stir until everything is well combined. Scoop up small handfuls of the mixture and roll into walnut sized balls. Put on the greased baking sheet and press down with you fingertips. Press the edges in if they start to crack slightly.

Bake for about 15- 17 minutes until golden. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. They are great on their own or with a cup of tea and nice as biscuits for a cheese board as well. Bring your own view…
