Oaty Chia Biscuits

Oaty-Chia-Biscuits-web

These are very quick and easy Oat & Chia Lunchbox Biscuits, they are one of our favourite biscuits in our house, of all time!. My girls are having them for afternoon tea today. Both girls refuse to eat porridge but are quite happy to have their oats this way! This recipe makes 12 – 14 biscuits and only take 20 mins including cooking time to make – they won’t last long! Variation – you could also add a handful of choc chips, sultanas, raisins, cranberries or dessicated coconut to make the more like Anzac bikkies.

If you are trying to avoid sugar there is 1/2 C (raw caster) in the original recipe but I just made a batch replacing it with coconut sugar, like for like, and they still taste just as good, in fact I’m eating one now and want another! You could replace it with Rice Malt Syrup but may need to up the flour a little bit.
