    Using pinhead oats, or steel-cut oats, for these biscuits gives a toothsome texture. Super easy to make and nice to eat!

    What a great recipe - includes ounces measurements which made it even easier. I use pinhead for my porridge - don't be put off by them if you're not sure what they are. Followed recipe to the letter (except I didn't have any golden syrup, so used maple) and the biscuits were perfect. Very crispy, Thank you!  -  26 May 2013


    The easiest biscuits on earth to make and nicely plain and crunchy! If I were to make any change at all it would be to add the milk separately rather than heating it through with the butter and syrup - mine separated but it didn't seem to affect the taste or bake!  -  30 Oct 2016


    They taste great but mine spread rather messily on the baking tray so their appearance is not great. I only added 40g of sugar and a few tablespoons of stevia so they taste very sweet. I used pinhead oatmeal so they have a very crunchy texture.  -  20 Jan 2018
