Baking | Oatie Biscuits Recipe


Todays post is just a quick and easy biscuit recipe. Basically, this afternoon I had a craving for something sweet so I rooted around in the cupboard and knocked up a little somethin' somethin'. Also, the Bake Off finale is on tonight (I'm both super excited and sad in equal measure), and I just can't bare to watch it without a little treat in hand.  Not that these simple little biscuits compare to the amazing creations those guys bake!
But hey, there's nothing wrong with a simple biscuit. One of my favourite things about autumn is getting my thick woolly socks on and curling up under a big blanket with a book, looking out at the dismal weather. And that wouldn't be complete without a huge mug of tea (or a delicate china cup, depending on my mood) and a biscuit or three.
These little oatie numbers are so simple to make and even easier to eat. Seriously, they go down too well!

What you will need:

  • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk
  • 75g Unsalted Butter
  • 75g Soft Light Brown Sugar
  • 75g Self Raising Flour
  • 75g Oats

What you need to do:

  • Preheat the over to 180 C and line a tray with baking parchment. Set the tray aside for later.
  • Grab a big bowl and mix together the Flour, Sugar and Oats. I used Soft Light Brown Sugar as this helps add a bit of chewy-ness, but you can use normal sugar if you want to. I also used Jumbo Rolled Oats just because I already had them in the cupboard for making granola, but Porridge Oats will work just as well. 
  • In a pan, add the butter, maple syrup and milk, and stir together over a low heat until combined. Basically until the butter is melted, be careful not to burn it. I had Pure Maple Syrup in the cupboard but normal Maple Syrup is fine. You could also use Golden Syrup although this has a thicker consistency so I would only use 1 tablespoon of that.
  • Add the melted mixture to the dry ingredients you mixed together in the bowl earlier. Mix this together until everything is combined.
  • Shape the mixture in to rounds (circles not balls) as big or as small as you like. The mixture is enough to make about 12 average sized biscuits.
  • Place the rounds on a baking tray. Make sure to space them out as the mixture does spread out while in the oven!
  • Bake for around 10 to 15 minutes depending on the size you went for. I found the perfect time for mine was12 minutes. Make sure there a light golden brown. They will come out of the oven soft, but they do crisp up once you've left them to cool.
  • Serve with a beverage of your choice and enjoy!


  1. These look and sound so delicious! I absolutly love oat biscuits and cookies, there's just something so satisfying about them, and this recipe looks really easy so I'll need to give it a go sometime soon. I bet it would be really yummy with some dried fruit mixed in too :)
