Oat and raisin biscuits

I am indebted to my mate Joe for sharing his recipe for pecan pie that uses maple syrup rather than the devil’s work, corn syrup. And this. This recipe changed my life. No really. My life is better knowing this recipe exists and these biscuits can be made. In my weekly radio spot on  ABC Mid North Coast this morning I shared the love so here it is for you too. You know what you have to do. Get that oven on.

Oat and raisin biscuits

via Joke

  • 1 cup of nuts and fruits – a mix of whatever you like, eg raisins, craisins, dried apple, dried apricots, sultanas, pecans, walnuts etc
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 80g (6tblsp) butter
  • 1 3/4 cups oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 180C
  2. In a small saucepan combine the fruit, nuts and water. Bring to the boil then simmer until all the water has been absorbed
  3. In a frypan melt the butter and cook the oats, turning constantly, for 5 minutes
  4. In a bowl combine the cinnamon, flour, baking powder and baking soda
  5. In another bowl mix the brown sugar and vanilla with the egg
  6. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry until well combined.  The mixture will be quite stiff so don’t be afraid to get your hands in there
  7. Wet your hands and roll heaped teaspoons of the mixture into balls and place on a baking tray
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  9. Try not to eat about 10 of them in one go.

    Just made these..yum what a great recipe! Everyone in the family loved them. Think I may try with a bit less sugar next time?

      I reckon you could go easy on the sugar because of the sweetness that comes from the dried fruit – let me know how it goes.
