Oat Biscuits

Homemade Oat BiscuitsThis is my three hundredth post. Yes, I've published three whole hundred posts full of beads and waffle. Yay me! I'm celebrating with a cup of tea and one (or two) of these homemade oat biscuits. They're like flapjacks in crunchy cookie form. Yum!

Here's the recipe for them (as requested by Sue) :

Oat Biscuits
Makes approximately 24

150g (6oz) Porridge Oats
150g (6oz) Self Raising Flour
150g (6oz) Caster Sugar
150g (6oz) Butter
2 Tablespoons Golden Syrup
2 Tablespoons Milk

1. Heat butter, syrup and milk in a saucepan until butter is melted.
2. Pour into a bowl containing the oats, flour and sugar and mix together.
3. Roll heaped-teaspoon-sized amounts of the mixture into balls and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Space them well as the mixture will double in size.
4. Bake in batches at 180°C (160°C for fan ovens) for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
5. Leave biscuits on baking tray for five minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


  1. I love your olive-shaped beads - they are so perfect! Also, did you make the biscuits? Care to share the recipe? : )

  2. Thank you for the bead compliments, Sue!

    Yes - I did make the biscuits. I shall edit the post to include the recipe. :o)

  3. Thanks for the recipe - for us yanks, what is Golden Syrup? Thanks! : )

  4. Golden Syrup is inverted sugar syrup. The most popular brand here in the UK is Lyle's. There's a bit about it on Wikipedia - click here.

    From what I can see there isn't an absolute equivalent over there in the States.

    Hope this is of some help?!

  5. Just found this website which has some suggestions for Golden Syrup substitutes. :o)

  6. Will definitely have a go at these - thanks for the recipe! Haven't made biscuits since I was at school :)

  7. They're quick and easy to make, Carolyn but there is one problem with them - they're pretty moreish!

  8. Your biccies look delicious Laura, I might just give them a go ;)

  9. I can agree with you, they are very moreish. Just made a batch and half have disappeared back to the office with my hubby - must be good :)

  10. Hey! I googled oat biscuit recipes and yours was one of the first to come up. Just made them and they're delicious! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! :)

  11. Nice one, Alice! They are yum - actually, I think I'll bake some more of those!
