Delicious Oaty biscuits just like grandma used to make

14 Nov

Hello everyone. So Today I thought I would share with you guys a yummy recipe for oaty biscuits. Cheap and cheerful and tasty to eat. Be warned, these little beauty s will be gone quicker then you think.

Before I head onto the recipe, I’d like to introduce you to my new toy.

Meet my new toy stand mixer

This is Stan, my new mixer. Anyone following my twitter or instagram will know that I’ve been rather excited about my new toy. More than a woman should be excited about a blooming kitchen appliance.

He is a gorgeous cherry apple red, although on here he looks rather orange.

Anywhoo, in order to bless this device I must use it ASAP. So, the recipe for oaty biscuits came out. (every time I say biscuits in my head, I hear Vinnie the panda say it Bwis-cuits)

Oaty biscuits nom nom

This recipe is not suitable to people like me who can’t eat dairy, so I’ve had to be good. But if you’re OK with it, then you’re onto a winner.

So onto the recipe

Heres what you are gonna need.

  • 225g of butter
  • 225g soft brown sugar
  • 175g condensed milk ( about 1/2 a can)
  • 200g rolled oats (thats asda basic range for me)
  • 150g self raising flour

The following are optional extras

  • cinnamon 1/2 or 1tsp
  • 150g raisins
  • 150g chopped glace cherries
  • 100g chopped nuts

I’ve made mine naked AKA basic. No extras. But if you add extras do so at the end of the mixing stage with a spoon.

So first you are going to want to heat your oven up to gas mark 4, that’s 180c or 350f.

Line your baking trays with the baking paper and set to one side.

These can be done just as easily by hand, so just use a mixing bowl and spoon if you don’t have a Stan.

Into Stan I put the butter and sugar and creamed together until…well, creamy I guess.

Mix sugar and butter

Once these are nice and mixed, you need to add your condensed milk and mix through.

Followed by adding the rolled oats and flour and combining well.

Add the oats and flour

Once it resembles something like this, its time to get creative with your extras if you are adding any.

*This is were you can add those extra bits*

Then I used a spoon, but you can stick your hands in if you like to get mucky, and shape a round dollop of mixture onto the tray. I literally just took a spoon full and dolloped it onto the tray.

Just like this

Drop dollops onto a baking sheet covered with baking paper

Dont forget to make sure they have room to grow, as they will start to spread as they cook.

Now bake in your oven for 15 mins, and remove when the colour starts to change to a slight tan colour. Allow to cool on the rack for a good 15 minutes before trying to move them onto a cooling rack, if they last this long you are doing well.

After cooking, allow to cool on the sheet

They are that simple.

Now, never mind the washing up. Go put your feet up, get a cuppa on the go and enjoy those oaty little treats.
