Kid's Oat Biscuits

    25 minutes

    This recipe can be made alone but is really designed for a group of 6 kids. Each gets to mix their own before placing on a tray to bake.

    Serves: 90 

    • 6 cups (900g) oats
    • 3 cups (450g) packed brown sugar

    • 3 cups (375g) plain flour
    • 1 tablespoon bicarbonate of soda

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Put ingredients together in a bowl. (Or for each child's bowl use 1 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 125g butter or margarine, 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda).
    2. Mash, knead and squeeze with hands until there are no lumps of butter. Form into small balls not as big as a walnut.

    These are simple to make but instead of all the mess of the butter, glass and sugar, I just put the sugar in a small saucer, flattened the cookie on it and turned it sugar size up onto the cookie pan. Much easier. And they are very DELICIOUS! Thank you, L.A. Stevens, this recipe is a keeper.  -  27 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    L.A., thank you for saving my day. I had a little group of five year olds to babysit one day. I had already decided I wanted to corral them in the kitchen where I have easy clean-up vinyl.(Oy! I'm too old for this!) Anyway, I put out the bowls as you suggested along with little bowls of M&Ms, raisins, and dried fruit pieces. They all had a great time pressing their goodies into these cookies and comparing notes. Thank you for not only a tasty recipe, but for a great idea to keep children entertained on a rainy Seattle day.  -  07 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Nice and easy, tasty too. I did not use the full amount of sugar and I used whole wheat flour. An easy way to make cookies a touch healthy  -  17 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
