Lets make oats biscuits today featuring chocolate. Just because anything covered in chocolate makes chocolate better. Yes, I am one of those people. I find chocolate incomplete without anything on.
The chocolate coating is delicious, but it is oats biscuits we making.
Are you obsessed with oats as I am? Anything with oats, I am in. Oats, brown sugar and honey? Lets be best friends.
Making the biscuit dough is easy; combine oats, flour, baking powder and salt together. Beat the butter/margarine, sugar together, add milk and honey, stir in the dry ingredients and that is it. Now, my favourite part of this process is the baking. I told you, I love oats, remember? Not only that, the smell of toasted oats from the oven 🙂
I will wear it as perfume. OK am out of here.
- 1/3cup/ 75g butter or margarine
- 1/3cup/71g light brown sugar
- 1 cup/ 90 quick cooking oats
- 3/4cup/ 90g pastry flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/2 teaspoon honey
- Pinch of salt
- Chocolate bar and margarine/ butter for spreading
Preheat oven to 180°C or 350°F. Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Whisk flour, baking powder, salt and oats together.
In a mixing bowl, beat margarine or butter and sugar together. Add in honey and milk. Add the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Spoon about tablespoon full onto a baking tray and press lightly.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown and it smells like toasted oats. It will be soft, leave to cool on the tray and it will firm up and become crunchy.
Melt chocolate with butter or margarine. Spread on biscuits and set aside to harden. If you want the square design, use a table knife to lightly cut across the biscuits when the chocolate has hardened. Store in an air tight container for three to four days.
