Oat and Raisin Biscuits

Oat and Raisin Biscuits - this recipe is from a cookbook my Mum got me for Christmas its a British one, I really liked these biscuits or cookies in the US. Hubby wasn't so keen as said less sugar and tasted like his morning oatmeal! but heres the recipe anyways. I must confess though when it comes to cookies American's rock at them!

  • 4 tablespoon butter
  • 4 1/2 oz sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 3/4 oz plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 6 oz rolled oats
  • m and m's well everything needs a bit of chocolate!
  • 4 1/2 oz raisins
  • 2 tablespoon sesame seeds
  1. cream the butter and sugar
  2. add in the egg, flour, salt, baking powder, m and m's, sesame seeds, raisins
  3. add small spoonfuls to a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

Jasmine and I have been enjoying them with our milk!, for amazing cookies be sure to see Amanda's blog, Amanda's Cookin, she's a pro!



  1. Cookies and Christmas are such a great combo. I love any type of cookie :)

  2. Cookies with heavy butter and sugar are no doubt flavorful, yet sometimes we do need a healthier alternative to give our bodies a break. Thanks for sharing.
