Homemade oat biscuits

Makes 1618


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.
