Enjoy these quick and easy to make Breakfast Oat Biscuits for those early morning starts.
Do your kids start school early? These days a lot of schools offer before school sports or arts programs so kids can be expected to be out of the house as early as 6.30am some mornings! My kids used to start school early some mornings for either netball training or choir rehearsal. They would have breakfast at home around 6am, but they find they get really hungry between then and morning tea time which is late morning. I would send them to school with a snack to have just before school starts. They liked hot chocolate, smoothies, muesli slices, fruit, yoghurt or biscuits. I’d always make these these breakfast fruit biscuits to have on hand for these early mornings. My whole family really liked them, even now the kids and hubby have them when they’re on the go!
I use mixed dried fruit but pick out the cherries, only because I’m not a big fan of them unless they are in a cherry ripe chocolate bar. You can also put nuts into this recipe, reduce the amount of fruit to 1 1/1 cups along with 1/2 cup of your favourite chopped nut. Pecans, macadamia or almonds would all be a really nice addition. I don’t add them as Miss 13 currently has braces and can’t eat nuts.
As I do with just about everything I bake, I put them in the freezer for when they are needed. We have been making lunches the night before lately, so we put them into a lunch container then and they are defrosted by the morning. I actually don’t mind having 2 some mornings along with my coffee.
