Digestive Biscuits (Gluten-Free)

    30 minutes

    Crunchy, nutty, gluten free biscuits that are very quick to make and delicious with a cuppa. If you prefer a sweeter biscuit, then you can add a little more sugar. Of course, you can make these with normal flour if you don't need them to be gluten free.

    • 155g gluten free plain flour
    • 50g soft brown sugar

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
    2. Put the porridge and mixed seeds into a food processor and whizz until quite fine.
    3. Add the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and margarine then whizz until well mixed.
    4. Add the milk and whizz again until mixture starts to come together. Don't worry if it looks a little dry. Remove from processor and knead well on a floured board.
    5. If mixture is really too dry, add a little more milk but don't over-wet it.
    6. Roll out to about 3mm thick and cut into rounds. Lift carefully onto baking tray using a spatula, prick with a fork.
    7. Bake until lightly golden, about 15 minutes.

    I made this recipe and omitted the seeds as i didn't have them. Turned out really nice, they looked a little pale but tasted fantastic. I will be keeping this recipe for ever! Many thanks.  -  18 Jun 2017


    It just works so well, and tastes like the real thing! I made them a bit less sweet with 40g sugar, and only used 2tsps baking powder and that worked fine  -  16 Jun 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I have not had a digestive biscuit for 14 years due to Coeliac Disease, What a lovely surprise, they were crisp, crunchy and tasty and was so like the real thing! They are probably the most healthy GF biscuit I have made, what a bonus  -  02 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
