Method

Easy Oat Biscuits is a community recipe submitted by grissomsgal and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

Grease the baking trays and set the oven to Gas 5

Pour the flour into a bowl

Add the sugar and oats and stir with a wooden spoon until it's all mixed well

Pour the milk and margarine into a frying pan, and add the butter

Mix with a wooden spoon until it is a fairly soft mixture. Turn on the heat and melt the mixture into a liquid, until there are no bumps or lumps in the mixture

Once it is 100% liquid without any lumps, pour most of it in the mixing bowl and over the dry ingredients. Note: If you pour all of it, then it will become too sticky

Mix thoroughly

Take small pieces and roll into golf-sized balls with your hands

Place the balls on the greased baking tray and flatten them slightly

Bake for about 20 minutes, until the crunchies look golden brown

Allow to cool for a few minutes on a cooling tray
