Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 100 grams butter
  • 100 grams dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup oat milk add more if the dough is dry - I used homemade oat milk (recipe linked in blog post above)
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 170ºC/350ºF.
  • Begin by mixing all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add the butter and mix and then gradually pour in the oat milk and thoroughly combine, till a non-sticky dough is formed.
  • Place the dough between two layers of non-stick parchment paper and roll out to digestive biscuit thickness.
  • Using a glass or cookie cutter, cut the dough into individual cookies and then lay out on your baking sheet/s.
  • Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes. If you'd prefer your cookies to have a bit more crunch and brown colour then you can leave them in for slightly longer.
  • Switch off the oven and let the biscuits cool down completely.
  • Melt the chocolate (either over a bowl on boiling water or in short spurts in the microwave) and spread over the biscuits using a fork to create the iconic pattern.

Notes

You can reduce the sugar content of this recipe further by simply adding less into the dough mix or using unsweetened dark chocolate.
I used homemade oat milk in this recipe, which is super simple to make! However, feel free to use store-bought too.
