Chewy raisin and oat biscuits

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

We spent some time indoors over the weekend as it was quite wet here on the Gold Coast to I spent some time in the kitchen doing some baking. I made these delicious raisin and oat biscuits along with my White Chocolate and Raspberry Muffins. These biscuits are so easy to put together and since they have hardly any sugar and include wholemeal flour I like to think that they are a little bit healthy too!

Usually, I add raisins to this mix but I only had a bag of mixed fruits when I made this batch, they still tasted fabulous though. If you are not a fan of raisins or dried fruits you could add chocolate chips or nuts.

These raisin and oat biscuits make for a great breakfast snack on the go or a healthier alternative to other bikkies to have with your tea or coffee. These are freezer friendly which makes them perfect for bulk-baking for lunch boxes!

I don’t have cornflakes, can you think of anything I can use instead? I do have dried coconut flakes? Might be too coconutty with that much coconut though!

Just made these with mashed banana, coconut, spices, pumpkin, sesame and chia seeds. This is my go-to recipe for my little girls preschool lunches. My resolution for this year has been to stop buying ‘kiddy’ packaged food from the supermarket. These are the muesli bar alternative. Thank-you!

Hi wanna know what is SR flour??

Lisa July 11, 2015 - 9:30 PM

SR flour is self raising flour

Pat July 20, 2015 - 9:18 AM

In the U.S it is called multi purpose flour.

Michelle September 24, 2015 - 9:49 PM

What can I use instead of SR wholemeal flour?

Wasn’t really a fan of these, I may add a bit of honey or cinnamon for a bit of extra flavour next time.
