Easy Oat Biscuits
July 30, 2013
My children love these biscuits and that makes me a happy mum!
This recipe is a slightly healthier version of my mum’s “famous” biscuits that they TOTALLY adore, as I did when I was growing up – and still do.
Mum’s recipe for biscuits is one of those recipes that is perfectly suited to presenting to a visitor with a cup of tea, bundling up as a gift, or for bribing a child to do what you need them to do. (I am sure I am not the only one who sometimes has to resort to bribery to convince the kids to do something!?)
Mum’s biscuits choc chip and almond biscuits never last long. They are so enthusiastically received when she visits that it has never occurred to me to even contemplate making my own version of her recipe. To be honest I only did so because I have kilos of oats and flours that I have just purchased from a local food co-op that I joined.
I altered mum’s biscuit recipe to make them a little more wholesome. I admit that hers is better – yes, but if you have not tasted hers then I guarantee that you will love these! They are light and fluffy, a little sweet from the fruit and the cocao nibs keep little hands reaching back for more.
Do you have a treasured recipe that you have created “spin off” recipes from? What is it and where did it come from?
