I was inspired by biscuit week in the last series of ‘The Great British Bake Off’ but wanted to make a biscuit that gave our little ones a few more nutrients than just being a sugary treat.
This recipe I’ve created has more fibre, B vitamins, slow-release carbs and heart-healthy oils than shop-bought oaty biscuits and I’ve also managed to squeeze a bit of fruit in them too which makes them more of a chewy biscuit rather than a crunchy one.
They can be frozen for up to 3 months so are ideal for lunchboxes or a mid-morning snack along with a small cup of milk.
