Crumbly Oat Biscuits


“This is a good recipe!” I got told by my baby boy! As he took a big bite!

He’s been going on about cookies for days because of the Cookie Monster. So I dedicated yesterday to making cookies/biscuits.

A recipe where there’s not a lot of prep. Just combining, stirring, patting and baking. I was pleasantly surprised with the snap of the biscuit and its texture is crunchy yet crumbly. I have a whole tin full of sweet delights now! I think my Cookie Monster of a son will be happy and satisfied for some time!



225g self-raising flour
200g porridge oats
170g sugar
225g butter/low fat spread
2 tbsp sunflower oil
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp hot water
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda


• Preheat the oven to 180°c, line and grease a baking tray

• Mix the dry flour, oats and sugar in a large bowl

• Melt the butter and golden syrup on a low heat, once melted add the hot water followed by the bicarbonate of soda. Stir through, it will start to fizz and bubble


• Gently pour this into the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour in the oil and use your hands to combine everything


• Take a little of the biscuit mixture roll into a ball and pat into a disk of 4cm


Evenly lay them on the tray as they will expand in width in the oven


• Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown



Let them rest for a while on the tray as they will be soft and then transfer onto a cooling rack

• Repeat for the rest of the mixture

Once done, make a cup of tea! You’ve earned a well deserved break and don’t forget the biscuits!

  1. Ha, is he old enough to know that cookies are a sometime treat?

    Love oaty biscuits, whether savoury or sweet. My partner makes a great version with coconut as well as oats, they’re so buttery and good, I love the look of this classic version too 🙂
