Oat Biscuits

These are reasonably easy to prepare although they never seem to last long enough for me to evaluate their shelf life.


  • 3 ounces Margarine
  • 3 ounces Solid Vegetable fat (if you can't find any of this, use 6 ounces of Margarine)
  • Almond Essence
  • 4 teaspoons Golden Syrup
  • 6 ounces Rolled Oats
  • 3 ounces Brown Sugar
  • 6 ounces Wholewheat Flour
  • teaspoon Baking Powder
  • teaspoon Salt


Beat the fat and the sugar together until they reach a creamy consistency and then work in the almond essence. Finally mix in the golden syrup.

In another bowl, mix together the rolled oats, brown sugar, flour baking powder and salt. Add this to the fat mixture and mix. divide into around 50 balls and flatten them, placing them on a greased baking tray (use a Teflon sheet as this works better - less prone to burning, easier to get off and so on).

Bake for 10 minutes or so at 375 Fahrenheit and turn out onto a cooling tray.



  1. chocolate chips,
  2. almond flakes,
  3. chopped glace cherries and so on.


Store in an airtight container for up to a month (possibly longer, I don't know - they have never lasted that long).

Serving suggestions:

On their own or with ice cream. Make it up as you go along.
