biscuit time

I made these chocolate oat biscuits sometime around Easter, and since I took photos it seemed silly not to share. These are possibly one of the simplest things to bake but that is what you want from your baked goods at times. Just something nice&quick to satisfy your wee cravings for sweet things! Somehow I associate oats with healthiness, despite the sugar and other ingredients, and cannot say no to a lil' biscuit anyway. And I suppose it isn't even surprising that I was watching Buffy while baking and eating these, hehe! Here's what you need and do, though:

3dl oats
1½dl sugar
2tbs plain flour
1½tbs cocoa powder
1tsp baking powder
1tsp vanilla
3/4dl melted butter
1 egg
For decoration: white baking chocolate & sprinkles

Mix the dry ingredients together. (Also, I didn't actually use the vanilla and don't think it's that essential!) Add butter (or similar substitute) and egg, and mix until smooth. With two teaspoons lift the mixture onto a baking tray lined with baking sheet in small knobs. Bake in 200°C for 5-7min and let cool on the tray. If you want to, decorate with melted white chocolate and sprinkles!

These look way too delicious. I'm the same way: since they have oats in them, I automatically think, "Yes. Yes I can eat seven of these at once. They are healthy!" ...okay let's be honest, even if I didn't pretend any cookie was healthy I'd eat seven in one sitting. Thank you for the recipe! I can't wait to try my hand at some! xx

Oh you have made me so hungry here Laura! Those biscuits look scrumptious. I have never tried making a biscuit before and it's so funny b/c biscuits over in the UK and the ones we have in the US are a totally different thing. I really want to try ones like those you have made!
