Choc Chip Oat Biscuits

 

If you love choc chip biscuits and are looking for a healthier option then this recipe is for you! A great recipe from The One Handed Cooks which incorporates rolled oats plus there is no need to cream the butter and sugar. A fun recipe to get the kids involved! 

 

Makes about: 20 biscuits

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 18 minutes

 

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup, firmly packed (110g) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) olive or macadamia oil
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cup (110g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (95g) choc chips

 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C degrees (160C degrees fan forced) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Whisk the brown sugar and oil in a large bowl until smooth and well combined. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk to combine. Sift in the flour and baking powder, add the oats and choc chips and stir until just combined.
  3. Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place on the lined tray, leaving about 5cm between each, then flatten slightly with the back of a spoon. 
  4. Bake the biscuits for 15-18 minutes or until light golden an cooked through. Remove from the oven and cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

 

Allergies or alternative ingredients:

  • Gluten/Wheat: use gluten or wheat free flour, and use quinoa flakes in place of the oats
  • Dairy: substitute sultanas for the choc chips
  • Egg: replace the egg with half an overripe mashed banana or 1/3 cup (100g) unsweetened apple 
  • Nuts: use olive oil rather than macadamia oil
