These are great. I also made them with 50g Fruit and Nut Muesli substituted for 50g of the oats. Blitzed in food processor to make smaller chunks.

These are great I made them but substituted the syrup for nutella and just added an extra tbls of milk as nutella is a bit dryer than the syrup and it is amazing

Simple and delicious every time. Prefer wholemeal flour but lovely using white too. Also good with a little cinnamon or ground ginger. Never last very long in my house.

I used plain flour instead of wholemeal. Lovely biscuits. One leads to another...

These are dangerously tasty :) we had no golden syrup so used honey instead and they were delicious and easy to make with children. Thank you Tinchen for the recipe

IMO it would be better to put less butter.

Does this recipe taste anything like hobnobs?

I tried this receipe and baked it for 15 minutes. The result is a soft biscuit, not crispy but otherwise flavoursome.

I made these exactly as per the recipe because we usually buy oat biscuits but prefer to think that home baked is better without additives but my husband complained that they make a 'too delicious' midnight snack - you can't win can you?

I made these using maple syrup as I didn't have any golden syrup in the cupboard, really yummy.

Every one loved my first attempt at buiscuit making, althhough i used some alternative ingrediants, as the cupboard was bare. I substituted honey for golden syrup, and used Ready oats instead of normal porridge oats, and demerara sugar. I weighed the ingrediants precisely, and found the resultant dough a little dry so i added a little extra milk.
I weighed exactly 26 grams per biscuit and ended up with 14 little round balls,into which i pressed a dark chocolate almond, and wrapped the dough around the sweet. What a treat for dark chocolate and almond nut addicts, yummy with coffee, and the nut keeps the buiscuit up in the centre. can't wait to try the "propper" recipe, with help from Shannon & Jade, my litttle helpers. p.s. chocolate almonds £1 at Asda.

Tastes absolutely lovely, only issue was that they went a bit "too" flat in the oven - would have wanted them higher. I added 1tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of ginger as well, worked perfectly!

These biscuits are great! Only made 8 though so perhaps made them too big. Next time I'll double the quantities for my greedy family!
