Homemade oat biscuits
11⁄4 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder 1⁄4 tsp baking soda 1⁄4 tsp salt
11⁄2 cups rolled oats (fine porridge oats) 75g butter
2 Tbsp honey
1 egg, lightly beaten
Heat the oven to 180degC. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
In a large bowl sieve together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in the rolled oats.
In a small saucepan, gently melt the butter and honey. Set aside to cool a little.
Pour the egg and butter mixture into the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Divide mixture into half.
On a lightly floured bench, roll each half, about 3mm thick. Using a plain 5cm biscuit cutter, cut out rounds. Place on the prepared trays and prick 23 times with a fork.
Place in the oven and bake for 1012 minutes, turning trays halfway through baking, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
