Oat Biscuits

"A slightly sweet biscuit with a crisp exterior and tender interior. We especially love them with sausage gravy or hamburger gravy over them. Because they aren't a flaky biscuit, you will need to cut them open or just put any butter or spreads on the top. They are also good with a stew."

  1. Made these for the first time this morning. Because we are having to be calorie conscious, I tried reducing the sugar to 1 tablespoon. It turned out just fine.
  2. These were really good with the stew I fixed the other night. They reminded me of a drop biscuit. We can't wait to try them with sausage gravy! I had had these at a friends house years ago and was glad to finally have the recipe myself. Thanks for sharing! Update: I used them with the hamburger version of Recipe #99991 and they were fabulous! This combination is a new favorite in our house. :)
  3. We had these excellent biscuits with some beef stew last week. Even though I burnt the bottoms, they were still delicious. I loved the texture, and the sugar added just a bit of sweetness to them. I didn't bother rolling them out, just dropped them on a pan and patted them flat with my hand (I wet my hand so the dough wouldn't stick). I ate them with honey and molasses and they were perfect. We will make these again.
  4. Excellent biscuits. We tried them fresh out of the oven with butter, and later, when cool, with peanut butter. Wish I had some stew to try them with. Next time, I'll make a double batch. The texture is not like a regular biscuit, and the flavor is slightly sweet and nutty.
