Jelly Tot Biscuits

I was rooting round my cupboard this morning, trying to decide what biscuits to make, when I came across some Jelly Tots that my son was given at Christmas. Yes, they were still in date!! Time to do something with them, I thought! I’m also lined up to do some more baking with the children at my sons preschool next week, and needed to come up with an egg-free and dairy-free recipe as there are now some children there with allergies.

Oatie Cookies

One of our favourite cookies is a simple Oatie Cookie. Similar in flavour to a Hobnob biscuit, but softer, and so much more satisfying to eat, knowing that you have baked it yourself.

This recipe can also be adapted to include chopped nuts, raisins, or chocolate chips (another favourite!). Continue reading
