7 great uses for your food processor

I love spending time in my kitchen trying out new recipes, batch cooking and trying to save my family money. For me cooking is relaxing, and a great way to look after our family budget.

Homemade oat biscuits – similar to Hobnobs!

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.

It’s SO simple and I have been preparing the base in the morning and then topping with potatoes just before putting into the oven.
