Pick Up Oat Bisquits


After a day at school my daughter is starving at pick up time – so god forbid I bring the WRONG SNACK! You know what I’m talking about. The familiar fine line between healthy yet sweet is a tricky one to navigate so therefore shop bought sticky fruit snacks can seem like a good alternative. Once in a blue moon I vow to change all this, normally after a long school holiday when all seems fresh and new. Out goes the white flour, sugar and other naughties lurking in the cupboard, to be replaced by buckwheat flour, einkorn, stevia and honey. Today’s recipe got the thumbs up by my sweet crazed daughter who was very happy when I waited for her at pick up with these biscuits. They are quick to make and taste delicious. Hope you’re children enjoy them as much as mine. Happy Thursday. X


Pick Up Oat biscuits

Makes about 12-15

100g organic butter

2 dl gluten-free oat flakes

2 tbsp mixed ground nuts (brazil/walnut/cashew/almonds)

1/2 tbsp mixed seeds (sunflower/pumpkin/flax/chia) *

1 dl honey/stevia

1/2 dl maple syrup

1 tbsp organic full fat milk/coconut cream

1 dl buckwheat/einkorn/gluten-free flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 egg

Set the oven for 175C. Melt the butter and pour over the oats, let sit for a few minutes. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and finish with the egg. When you’ve got a nice, gloopy texture take a spoon and dollop out on a baking sheet – not too close to each other as the mixture with spread to become large saucer shaped biscuits. Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden. Take out and cool on a wire rack. To make these slightly moorish, melt dark chocolate in a Bain Marie and when melted, brush each biscuit with the melted chocolate and let harden. Enjoy! x

*I grind the seeds so that they disappear into the biscuit mixture. If your children are ok with visible seeds you can leave them intact.
