Oat Biscuits Recipe

The weather has definitely turned towards Autumn, the mornings are cold and misty. At least this year we can say we actually had a Summer, the weather has been glorious. When the nights start closing it I find it is always nice to have a cup of tea and some biscuits to end the evening. There is something comforting about oats, lovely in porridge as a breakfast but also fabulous for cooking with. This weekend I decided I was going to make some biscuits and as I had some oats in the cupboard I make a simple crunchy oat biscuit that goes fabulously with a cup of tea.

I have to warn you, these are deliciously moreish and once you have one can’t stop. I noticed that several had disappeared after I left them out to cool and found my son with crumbs on his face. He swore he hadn’t had any but I did catch him raiding the tin later. If you want to try them this is the recipe.

  1. I’ve pinned this as it looks an incredibly easy recipe, one I could do with The Boy as an after-school activity. There’s something deliciously more-ish about oaty biscuits too.
