RAISIN AND CHOCOLATE OATS BISCUITS

Home baked biscuits are truly irresistible, whether they are US-style soft chewy cookies or crisp buttery biscuits. They all taste amazing! This recipe for raisin and chocolate oats biscuits is low in sugar and is filled with healthy wholesome ingredients.

This biscuit recipe is adapted from my all time favourite cook book series, My favourite recipes: Little cakes & cookies. If you have not heard of the book series, it is a collection of books whereby each book has a theme. In total there are 26 books. All of the recipes in the books are easy to follow but might need a little tweaking in the health department.


I love this recipe because, you can easily change up some of the ingredients to suit your dietary needs. For example:

  • replacing wheat flour with coconut flour

  • replacing regular oat with gluten-free oats

  • replacing brown sugar with coconut sugar

  • replacing raisins with any dried fruit.

These biscuits are great as a snack, dessert or even as a naughty breakfast. I have to warn you that these biscuits are incredibly addictive. One will never be enough! You can enjoy them with a cup of tea, coffee or milk, I promise these biscuits will make your day.
