Wholemeal Oat Biscuits Recipe

I love biscuits that have rolled oats in them. This is a recipe that was given to me many years ago by a lady I met through the Lions Club. She made these for a morning tea we had and I asked her for the recipe. They are simple to make and a great one to put in with the packed lunches.


1 cup wholemeal plain flour
3 cups rolled oats
60g butter (do not use margarine)
1/3 cup brown sugar - lightly packed
1/4 cup golden syrup
1/4 cup milk (can use hi-lo)


Preheat oven to moderate 175 - 180C
Sift flour into a large bowl.
Place rolled oats in a blender and blend for 10 - 15 seconds. Add to flour.
Rub butter into flour until it resembles course breadcrumbs.
Add sugar.
Heat golden syrup and milk together in a small saucepan until well combined. Cool slightly.
Gradually add this to the flour mixture and mix together to a firm dough.
Divide into two lots to make rolling easier.
Roll out each lot with a rolling pin to about a thickness of 3mm (1/8 inch).
Cut out with a round cutter and place on lightly greased oven trays.
Prick biscuits with a fork and bake in a moderate oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes about 30 biscuits.
