Serves: 24 

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup plain flour

  • 60g butter
  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) honey
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) buttermilk

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Using a blender or food processor, grind oats until fine.
  2. Put the blended oats in a medium bowl and sift in the flour, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the butter lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the honey and buttermilk to form a stiff dough.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 3mm in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters and place biscuits on to ungreased baking trays 2.5cm apart.
  4. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Remove biscuits from baking trays and allow to cool on wire racks.
