I am not a big fan of super sweet biscuits. I like to taste the flavour of the ingredients not sugar or chocolate. During my student years I used to do all sort of biscuits savoury and sweet ones. I loved to munch them whilst writing essays or studying for exams. The more butter the better the cookies..at least I thought so. In fact I thought I could not make biscuits without decent amount of oil or butter in them but I guess I was wrong. The following recipe is my own modification from one cookbook recipe I came across. If you cannot use oat you can always replace rolled oats with millet for example. These are perfect busy snacks for both toddlers and mums!
125g pear puree (baby pear puree pot is perfect for this)
2-3 tbs browns sugar
2-3 tbs white sugar
1 1/2 dl ( 1 1/4 cup) white flour or gluten wheat white flour
1 dl (1/2 cup) rolled oats or millet
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1dl (1/2 cup) raisins or you can use small pieces of dates too 🙂
1. Preheat the oven to 180 celsius degrees.
2. Mix together pear puree and sugars. Add the flour and other dry ingredients.
3. Form the biscuits and bake them for about 8min until golden brown.
These are healthy snack, not too sweet, no butter but lots of energy. Of course they are not like oaty butter biscuits but they’ll do 🙂
