I’m a bit of a lover of a sweet treat after tea. As my lovely husband and I are trying to lose weight these days we don’t have many treats at home now.
Typically I think if we don’t have them we won’t eat them. Only on the rare occasions do I like to push the boat out and bake us a nice treat.
Recently I made these delicious homemade oat biscuits. They take just 5 minutes to knock up and just 10 minutes in the oven – woohoo! This oat biscuits recipe is really simple and I hope you enjoy it!
Ingredients for homemade oat biscuits:
120g butter (dairy free is fine for this too!)
75g brown sugar
30ml golden syrup
100g porridge oats
100g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Method for making homemade oat biscuits:
Turn your oven on to 190C, gas mark 5.
Combine together the butter and sugar in a bowl.
Add the golden syrup. Mix this together.
Add the oats, flour and baking powder.
Keep mixing together until no more flour remains.
Roll into small balls. I always make them slightly bigger than a walnut.
Place the balls well spaced apart on a lined or greased baking tray.
Press down lightly with a fork. This will give a nice bit of texture to the top and help to ensure more even baking.
Bake for 10 minutes. They may need 11-12 depending on if your oven was completely warmed up before putting them in. Check at 10 minutes and use your own judgement as to whether to bake for 1-2 more minutes.
Leave to cool on a cooling rack. They often just cool for 15 minutes here before we want to tuck in – and they are delicious when they are still slightly warm!
How to make homemade oat biscuits:
homemade oat biscuits
- 120 g butter I used dairy free
- 75 g brown sugar
- 30 ml golden syrup
- 100 g porridge oats
- 100 g plain flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
Turn your oven to gas mark 5 / 190C.
Combine butter and sugar in a bowl. Pour in golden syrup. Mix again. Add oats, flour and baking powder. Combine once more until all of the ingredients are mixed together and no more flour remains.
Roll into small balls. I went for slightly bigger than a walnut.
Place balls well spaced apart on to a baking tray. I line mine with baking tray liners as this prevents things sticking and means I don’t have to use baking paper.
Press down lightly with a fork. This gives a nice texture to the top and helps the biscuits to spread out too.
Bake for 10 minutes. If not quite ready give another 1-2 minutes and they should be perfect. I remove mine just before they looked firm. Then I left them on a cooling rack for 10-15 minutes and they were perfect. Delicious served still warm from the oven!
So there you have it! My homemade oat biscuits – hope you find them as tasty as we do!
