Sprouted Oats For Anzac Biscuits

Asked by Nahymt. Answered on 24th August 2016

Full question

I would like to try Nigella's Anzac Biscuits from Simply Nigella. However I am unsure about the sprouted oats in the recipe. Are they the same as rolled oats? Also if I only used oats and pumpkin seeds (because I don't have the other 2 kinds of seed), would the recipe still work? Thank you.

Our answer

Nigella's Seed-Studded Anzac Biscuits (from SIMPLY NIGELLA are made with rolled oats. The recipe can be made with sprouted oats but it can also be made with regular porridge oats (quick-cooking oats), but not with the instant type of oatmeal. Sprouted oats are made from oat groats (the oat grain with the husk removed) that have been allowed to germinate before they are rolled. Part of the starch stored in the grain is used up during germination, so some people can find sprouted oats easier to digest. However both types of oats make a delicious cookie.

The cookies have a mixture of pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds. It is possible to switch the seeds around and have substitutions of different seeds or even dried fruits. However the total amount (by weight) of seeds should remain approximately the same. So if you are just using pumpkin seeds then use 75g of them.
