Servings 15 serving


  • 100 g Oatmeal
  • 50 g Whole Meal Flour
  • 50 g Plain White Flour
  • 50 g Sugar
  • 0.5 tsp Salt
  • 0.5 tsp Soda
  • 75 g Butter
  • 1 Egg Beaten


  • Preheat the oven to 190C/170C fan/Gas 5. Lightly grease two baking trays or line them with baking parchment.
  • Take a large mixing bowl and add all the dry ingredients. Mix together.
  • Dice or grate the butter then rub it into the dry ingredients until you have a mixture that looks like breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in enough of the beaten egg to make a soft dough, using your hands to bring the mixture together.
  • Generously sprinkle the work surface with oatmeal. Put the dough on the oatmeal, sprinkle more over the top then roll out 3-5 mm thick.
  • Using a round, 8cm cutter, cut out biscuits and transfer them to the greased baking trays. Gather up the scraps, re-roll and cut out more biscuits until all the dough is used up, dusting with more oatmeal as needed. Depending how thick you rolled the dough, you should get 12-15 biscuits.
  • Prick holes into each biscuit in a pleasing pattern using a skewer or cocktail stick.
  • Put the trays of biscuits in the preheated oven until cooked through and golden brown (15-20 min). Turn the trays around half way through if the biscuits are cooking unevenly. Transfer biscuits to a wire rack until completely cold before storing in an airtight container.
