Hi Mia, I have not tried this recipe yet, however, reading another "digestive biscuit" recipe, one comment was to roll the dough out between to sheets of waxed paper instead of in flour. Why? Because the dough is already dry as it is and rolling it out in more flour causes the dough to become crumbly. Hope this helps you. Melodee

What could I be doing wrong? I've tried this recipe 3 times - with poor results. The problem is the lack of moisture - it is SOOO crumbly ; I can't make it hold together unless I add more milk (quite a bit more ) in which case the result resembles more of a scone than a biscuit. I am used to handling pastry and shortbread etc. Is there a trick to this one ?

I also adapted this recipe very successfully to a non-gluten, sugar free version. For the 1 1/2 cups of flour I substituted 3/4 cup of brown rice flour and 3/4 cup of tapioca flour. For the 1/4 cup of sugar I substituted an equal amount of a combination of brown rice syrup and apple juice concentrate. For the oat flakes I substituted rice flakes. This produced a lovely biscuit.
