Had no desiccated coconut, so added some ground ginger and 1-oz of flour. It tastes nice and has a good texture.
Too moist

This recipe turned too moist to roll out. used tea spoon full instead.

Tasted great however I only had about 8 not 30! Put about a tablespoon (maybe less) blob on baking tray. It was also a very moist mixture. Think I'll try this one again.

Should be consumed within 12 days of opening. Store in a cool dry place

The recipe was very runny so I did add slightly more flower and about 25% more oats...

I didnt use coconut, so to complement the oats I added about 50g of honey and the grated flesh of one apple.

I used tea-spoons to get the mix onto the baking tray... which made around 24 yummy cookies!

Which flour?

Should I use plain flour or self-raising flour for this recipe?
Jazz them up a bit!

I'm not a great fan of coconut, so made up this mixture without it and divided it into three bowls. Added ground almonds to one bowl - they came out fine but a bit bland. Added couple of tablespoons of top quality granola to the second - much better and would be good addition to a packed lunch. Added loads of cinnamon to the third mixture and made these biscuits much smaller - great with a cup of coffee.
Fine with added rasins
posted by Ross @ 12:58PM, 2/05/10
I put in a litte (15g) extra flour and 25g extra oats and only a sprinkling of coconut. Then about 60g rasins. This recipie worked really well and was easy to prepare - the timing was also just right. I would definately make these again - they are nice every-day cookies!
Its a perfect dough, not too moist

All ingredients in fact perfect i found, use a teaspoon scoop out 30 balls then round with palms, space them out and press slightly, baking time only 12 minutes max (in my old oven), biscuits comes out flatten and of course bigger but really delicious. i used Trex direct from fridge (not melted butter) for cholestral reason, it works fine. lovely light texture, crunchy and tasty healthy snacks.
Oat Biscuits!

Thank you for the recipe. They tasted amazing, but the mixture turned out to be very moist and so difficult to roll out. If I were to make oat biscuits again, I would probably add less butter to the mixture.
But they were still very yummy!
