Quick and Simple Honey and Oat Biscuit Recipe

Honey and oats are a great combination for breakfast. However, they are also great together in biscuits.

Below is a really simple and quick recipe for oat biscuits with a hint of honey. It takes 10 minutes to make, it’s a great way introduction to baking if you don’t usually bake and it is a simple recipe to do with children (especially if you find yourself house bound on a rainy day).

If you like, you can add dried fruit to this recipe (to add another flavour and texture), and I find raisins or chopped dried apricot work really well as do chopped dried dates. It’s worth experimenting, you may never go back to shop bought biscuits again.

Prep Time: 10 mins. Bake Time: 10 mins.

Ingredients: Makes: 10-12 biscuits

  • 75g Self raising flour
  • 75g porridge / rolled oats
  • 75g caster sugar (or brown sugar if you fancy a deeper flavour)
  • 75g butter (or you can use margarine)
  • 1 tablespoon honey, I tend to go for a dark honey if I have one in the cupboard.
  • 1 tablespoon milk/ soya milk

How to make the biscuits:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C.
  2. Place baking paper/parchment on a baking tray.
  3. Sift the flour into a bowl and then add the oats and sugar.
  4. In a saucepan melt the butter, milk and honey (slowly) and mix it together until it is a warm liquid.
  5. Add  the liquid to your flour mixture and mix together.
  6. Use your hands to mould the dough into biscuit shapes, you can usually make 12 depending on the size.
  7. Place the biscuits on the tray and place  in oven for around 10 to 15 minutes or until the biscuit is slightly brown.
  8. Take out of the oven to cool.

How to eat your biscuits:

Whilst your biscuits are are cooling, pop the kettle on and make a cup of tea.

Sit down in an armchair, look out of the window and enjoy your biscuits and tea, enveloped in a moment of calm.
