Honey Biscuits

Honey Biscuits are a very quick and easy biscuit to make, you should already have all these items in your fridge or pantry.


Honey Biscuits are freezable so you can put them in the kids lunchboxes as well. Lunchbox below is available from here.


I freeze all the biscuits I make.  You can more about how I freeze biscuits and cookies here. I place them frozen in the kids lunchboxes and they are defrosted by morning tea time.

These look delish, I love a good biccie recipe. I will get my resident baker (15 year old daughter) on to it straight away!

Could you have more honey & less sugar do you think?

Andrea July 8, 2015 - 11:31 AM

Are the qualities right in the recipe, or is it missing milk?
I seem to have a bowl of what resembles bread crumbs. I have put everything the recipe asks for.

Keera July 13, 2015 - 11:47 AM

I’m with Andrea, a bowl of breadcrumbs. Is there an ingredient missing? Thanks

Andrea July 13, 2015 - 12:06 PM

I ended up adding milk, but added too much and got a sticky mess but got some biscuits in the end. So maybe 3tbs?

Rebecca February 19, 2016 - 2:15 PM

Agree milk quantity – needs more.

Nice biscuits ! ?

Tina December 29, 2016 - 9:04 PM

Definitely something missing. I added extra butter and a bit more honey. Turned out nice and short. Very yummy. Would love to try them with the correct quantities though.

Gemma January 27, 2017 - 1:51 PM

Agree, definitely something not quite right with the quantities. Have gone rogue, will see how they turn out

Steph May 19, 2017 - 9:19 AM

I have just made them to. Absolutely moreish. I agree with the others. ended with a bowl of crumbs but I just added more milk until it seemed the right consistency.

that’s so great to hear. I think there could be a few factors, how soft the butter is, how big the egg yolk is, but what you did adding a little extra milk is perfect 🙂

Comes back to the Egg Yolk and it’s size… I had 800g eggs (large) and they worked out perfectly! If your eggs are small I would use two yolks! Yum… will be adding lemon rind next time and only half a cup of sugar! So easy and so yum!

Jacqueline September 4, 2019 - 1:33 PM

I added the egg white and another spoon of milk and got a good mix. I found the biscuits eye watering sweet though, and couldn’t taste the honey over the coconut, so Im guessing the mix was so dry because of too much coconut and sugar, Rather than not enough wet ingredients.

Jacqueline I would recommend cutting back the amount of sugar if you’re finding them too sweet and dry. I hope this helps 🙂 Kat x
