Choc Chip Oat Biscuits

These biscuits smell like what my granny’s kitchen smelt like – such a beautiful warm welcoming smell that wraps you up in a delicate warm and fuzzy feeling.  What more could you ask for!  These are so good that even my ever loving Pete who isn’t a biscuit person kept saying how fabulous they are.

  1. Ooh now these look good! I don’t often make cookies/biscuits as the waistline is fighting a constant battle but these look so delicate and calorie free (ok, I am making that last bit up!) that I am sure just a couple would be positively good for me 🙂

    • Oh without a shadow of a doubt, these are absolutely and positively good for you. You see, the calories slip through all the tiny gaps so nothing to worry about. 😀 Have a beautiful day Tanya. 🙂 xo

  2. These look so delicious, Mandy! And you had me at the smell of granny’s kitchen. I could literally remember that so clearly. Perfect! And awesome pics, btw! 😉

  3. Nothing like the aroma of a kitchen with cookies in the oven. These sound so very good, Mandy, and I was glad to read that they are virtually calorie free. You should try marketing them. The World is ready for a calorie free cookie … or biscuit. Look at me! I’m bilingual! 🙂

  4. How is it even possible to be ‘not a biscuit person’???! At least your darling has the sense to recognize that these are something special, but then having collected you he has already proven his perspicacity in regard to spotting specialness. 😀

    • See, we are more savoury than sweet “teethed” in our home Kath. You are such a darling, thank you for such a beautiful compliment for my my Pete and I. Sending you a BIG hug! Have a super day. 🙂 xo
