Oatmeal and Raisin Biscuits

This recipe comes after an extensive search for a ‘healthier’ style of biscuit. 

I have tried so many different recipes for oatmeal and raisin biscuits and I believe this one is the best.  They are not too chewy and not too crunchy, and they last well (if you can stop yourself from eating them!)

The oats in these biscuits help to make them lower GI and boost the fibre content.  I just find them yummy!!

Makes 26 biscuits (approx 22g each)

  • 100g butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1  egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • ½  cup raisins

Preheat oven to 160 degrees.

Beat butter and sugars together (by hand or with an electric mixer) until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well.

Add combined sifted flour, baking powder, cinnamon; mix well.  Add oats and raisins; mix well.

Drop heaped teaspoonfuls of dough onto greased or lined baking trays and press down slightly with the back of a fork.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on baking trays for a few minutes before removing to wire rack.

Store in air-tight container.
