Hob Nobbing with Sugar-Free Hob Nobs


Hob Nobs, love ’em!  I developed a taste for these back in the day when I lived in England for a while and it’s great that that they are now in mainstream supermarkets in Australia, my favourite are the milk chocolate ones but in trying to keep away from processed, packaged foods I was on the search for a nice & easy recipe for home made ones.

I found a recipe on Sarah Wilson’s “I Quit Sugar” website for Sugar Free Hob Nobs, we made them today and they are delicious – will be in the lunch boxes tomorrow.  Click on the title for Sarah’s recipe or I have also adapted it for the Thermomix below.

To make them low in gluten just change the flour.

You will get about 15 – 18 biscuits depending on how big you make them.


Sugar-Free Hob Nobs


  • 150 g unsalted butter
  • 140 g Rice Malt Syrup
  • 330 g wholemeal SR Flour or Gluten Free SR flour
  • 100 g rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp stevia (this was in I Quit Sugar's recipe but I don't think it's necessary so ok to leave out)
  • 1/2 tsp bicarb soda
  • 100 g dark chocolate (optional if you want to coat the top with it or I actually put 50g choc chips through the mixture at the end)


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Melt butter and Rice Malt Syrup in TM 3 minutes / 60 C/ speed 3
  3. Add flour, oats, stevia and bicarb soda and combine 15 seconds / reverse / speed 4
  4. Mould tablespoons of the mixture into balls, place on the prepared tray and flatten. They will spread so make sure they are at least 2 cm between them.
  5. Bake in the oven for 10 - 12 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and rest for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
