Soft Oat Biscuits

Soft oat biscuits with a hint of coconut for sweet toppings such as cream cheese and smashes berries, peanut butter and jelly or whatever else you can think of!

I tried it first with savoury topping, and that actually worked too! But my favourite topping so far was jam and almond butter - no less than spiffing!

These are child-friendly, egg-free and altogether vegan. I love the currants in the mixture, they add just that little something to the biscuits.

Soft Oat Biscuits
(Makes about 9)

125g oat flour or oats (you can whizz oats roughly in a food processor)
150 ml boiling water (a little over half a cup)
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp dried fruit (currants, chopped dates, cranberries, coconut, mango, etc.)
1/3 tsp vanilla extract
A pinch of salt

- Pre-heat your oven to 175-180°C.

- Now, mix the oats and boiling water together and set aside for a couple of minutes, before mixing in the rest of the ingredients.

- Place the dough on a baking tray, and place a piece of clingfilm over the top before rolling out. The dough should be about 5mm thick.

- Once rolled out, use a knife or a pizza cutter to make marks in the batter, you don#t have to cut all the way through, you can do this after they are baked. Place in the middle of the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes.

- Let it cool completely before cutting the biscuits into squares. Serve topped with whatever goodies you can think of, or simply on its own!

As for my Hogmanay celebrations, I hosted a little get-together for the last/first day of the year. I spent a couple of hours cooking, and I made Spiced Currant Bulghur, Hummous, Iranian dressing, Sweet Tater Tots, lentil patties and I also tried my hands on these puff pasties stuffed with Brie and caramelised onions, yum!

Cava, wine and cheap champagne were had in-between all the food, and I was lucky to enter the new year with some of my favourite people! Did you do anything nice for New Year's Eve?
