Oaten Biscuits

READY IN: 30mins




  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F, and line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  • Combine the flour, oat bran, sugar, salt and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl, and use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Add the water and use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix the ingredients in the bowl until the mixture just comes together.
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.
  • Divide the dough into 2 equal portions and use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll out the dough until it is about 3mm thick. Use a 5cm/2"-diameter round pastry cutter to cut out the biscuits and place them on the prepared trays.
  • Lightly brush the tops of the biscuits with egg and sprinkle with the extra oat bran.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven, swapping the position of the trays over halfway through the cooking, for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Set aside for 15 minutes to cool.
  • Serve with the blue cheese, cheddar and brie and with Toffee Grapes Recipe #144733.
