Digestive Biscuits (Eggless)

It makes nine regular biscuits.
Preparation time: 5’ minutes
Baking time: 15’ minutes

Digestive biscuits are ideal for a diet snack or to form the basis of cheesecakes. Up to now I never thought of baking them, but since I am on a diet now, I decided it is time to learn how to make them.

I discovered that:
1) they are extremely easy to make,
2) the ingredients are simple, you can find them anywhere, and
3) there are no eggs involved.

Below you will be able to find all the preparation steps. Try them, I am sure you will love every single bite :-)!!!

In a large bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Mix in the oatmeal. 
Add the butter and sugar to the mixture, and mix well. 

Stir in the milk until mixture forms a thick paste.

Form the biscuits with the help of a cookie spoon.

Bake 15' to 18' minutes, or until golden.

Let cool on wire rack. Store in an airtight tin.

Stop panicking!  I only had two L


  1. Mmmm...these look great. And I love a recipe that only makes 9 cookies...less guilt when I eat them all ;)

  2. Yammi - I like this kind of cookies :)
    I'm not on a diet so I'd probably eat them all at once

  3. These are stunning! I love homemade digestives (or graham crackers). They taste SO much better! Hubby would BEG that I make these daily for him so he can have them every night with tea!

  5. This looks yummy! I would prb eat the whole batch, since they are "diet" =]

  6. Yum! I rememeber eating digestive biscuits that had chocolate on the bottom as a kid. These look great, and I love the small recipe!

  7. I love these things! McVities has a variety called HobNobs. They're better withOUT the chocolate, even. Can't wait to make my own. Thanks!

  8. Mmm these look great! I'd probably dip them in nutella so I don't know how much they would help my diet lol

  9. Mmmm, this looks great! I would love to have those with some tea or coffee right about now!

  10. Now see something I can eat without the guilt! I just don't do well with guilt. :)

  12. Yum yum yum! These look lovely! Great with a cuppa :) Buzzed
