Lunchbox Biscuit Recipe

    30 minutes

    I have used this recipe for years. These biscuits are a great standby when you need something to put in the lunchbox for playlunch. Easy to make too and children love them. Such an easy recipe's a good one to have the children help you make. Teach them to measure at the same time!

    These biscuits are so quick and easy to make and taste yummy!. I bake a large batch, freeze them and just pop one in the kids' lunchboxes each morning. I change the receipe every time I bake them depending on what I have in the cupboard. It's also a good recipe to bury lots of 'good' things that the kids wont eat. Mine are full of pumpkin and sunflower seeds, dried cherries, blueberries etc (all the things my kids would never eat!!). I whizz it up in the processor and they never know they're there. sometimes I add a few chocolate chunks. I use the basic recipe and just add other stuff. If the mix looks a bit too thick after additons, add a bit of milk to loosen. Definitely a recipe you can play around with.  -  19 Jun 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I never write reviews but everyone loves these biscuits. I make a batch every week and they are perfect for freezing too!! I do not add the sultanas due to my children not liking them and I measure them out in table spoons so it is a smaller treat. these biscuits go so well crumbled on top of vanilla ice cream. thank you for the recipe x x  -  22 Sep 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
