Wholesome and Oaty

These tasty little bickies are full of goodness, yet yummy enough to seem like a treat. Just like choc-chip cookies, without the choc. Perfect for the little fairies in the house. 

You need:

1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
80g soft butter
50g plain flour
50g wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
100g oats
1/2 cup sultanas

You could use your mixer for this, or just go with muscle power. Whisk egg, sugar and vanilla until thick and pale-ish. Beat in the butter. Add flours and baking powder. 

Stir through the oats and sultanas.

Form into teaspoon-sized balls and place onto lined baking trays.

Bake at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes until lovely and golden and crispy-chewy.
Serve to your children after naptime and tell them it's a treat for good behaviour...

..or excessive cuteness.

Recipe adapted from 'Apples For Jam' by Tessa Kiros.


  1. I think excessive cuteness. she is a little doll. nice recipe by the way. xo

  2. Aww definitely for cuteness:) Your little one is very sweet Greer. I love the sound of this recipe I think I might have to just give this one a try:) Thank you. xx

  3. Late to the party I know... so glad there are some cakes left, oh another one? Why not, mmmmm, thanks.

  5. I hope she got two biscuits for that cuteness! ps removed the last comment because I made some typos!

  6. Apples for Jam is a beautiful book. I had a copy in the UK, and don't have it now for some reason. Will have to fix that!

  7. I adore bickies and will add this recipe to my ever-growing list of cookie recipes. Your sweetie is gorgeous!

  8. Oh, I have Apples For Jam, it's great, but not as good as Falling Cloudberries which i LOVE. How can one family have such a rich and varied culinary heritage, it's not fair.

  9. yum! im going to make these tomorrow!

  10. They are baking in the oven - yum! these guys seriously took about 4 mins to prepare!


I love comments. Thanks for yours!
