Here I would like to present you my Oat Biscuits recipe. Crispy biscuits, which are baked in the twinkling of an eye.

Biscuits with oats are very popular not only in Sweden. These biscuits with tea or coffee are pure relaxation in a Nordic way. Autumn and winter become cosy moments of well-being with the right ingredients…

Let me invite you to my cosy bakery… Have fun baking and good luck!

1. Quickly bake Oat Biscuits as Tea Biscuits

When the wind whistles outside, what could be better than a good cup of tea with oat biscuits! … And when the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming we drink coffee with it 🙂

You don’t need cookie jars for these cookies. One teaspoon for the round biscuits on the tray is enough.

What a Swedish furniture store offers, you can not only copy but also refine.

Chopped nuts or almonds as well as dried fruits (cranberries, raisins, etc.) give your biscuit a new aroma. It is also delicious to dip the biscuits into liquid chocolate after baking.

I’ve written down a few combinations that will tickle your taste buds – all with oats, of course:

  • Hazelnuts – black chocolate
  • Macadamia nuts – white chocolate
  • Almonds – chocolate with milk chocolate
  • Walnuts – candied cherries

What do you think I chose? Look here…

2. Christmas Biscuits

At Christmas time we also want to eat our beloved oat biscuits. That’s why we bake them a bit more Christmassy with cinnamon, anise, ginger and cardamom. Or, we use the finished gingerbread spice.

At Christmas I also like rum aroma and honey as a sugar substitute.

3. Keep Oat Biscuits

I prefer to store my biscuits in a tin cookie jar, which I lay out with baking paper.

Just as good is the storage in other tightly closed containers made of glass or ceramic.

The most important thing is that your cookies can rest dry, cool and dark.

If you want to give your biscuits away to your favourite people, how about a pretty tin can as packaging? So your candy stays crispy, fresh and delicious.

4. This Way to the Baking Recipe!

Here we go. Quickly to the kitchen, because after work comes relaxation! My step by step photos will help you with the preparation.
