Summary

So this is my second attempt at making some slimming world friendly oat based biscuits/cookies/muffins. The first attempt did not go well at all and they ended up tasting of absolutely nothing! This recipe makes around 12 small biscuits and you can either opt for the lower syn plain biscuits with a bit of vanilla flavouring or if you have any choc shot lying around you can turn them chocolatey. For my chocolate oat biscuits I used the new coconut flavour choc shot which is 0.5 syns per teaspoon and very delicious! This is a great recipe as not only is it a guilt free treat but its also very filling and the oats provide a slow release of energy, ideal for a lunch time snack!

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 (fan).
  2. Mix the oats and sweetener in a bowl.
  3. In a seperate bowl mix the two eggs and then add to the oat mixture.
  4. Add the vanillla essence or choc shot and mix well.
  5. Leave the mixture to sit for 15 minutes.
  6. Spoon the mixture evenly into your muffin cases.
  7. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

Verdict

We loved them! Really filling and sweet with a great crunchy texture and soft oaty middle. Although they look like biscuits and are hard on the outside they were more like small muffins but delicious nonetheless. I will definitley make them again but next time with a couple more teaspoons of the coconut choc shot because although they were very chocolatey you couldn’t really taste the coconut. The chocolate oat biscuits were my personal favourite but we all enjoyed the plain ones too.
