Easy Oat Biscuits Recipe!

Oat Biscuits Recipe

With minimal prep and cooking time, crunchy oat biscuits are one of my favourite (and easiest) recipes to turn to when looking for a quick pick me up.

There is something so satisfying about making homemade oat biscuits because no one believes just how easy they are to make!

Why not try adding something a little extra? You could always make some oat and raisin biscuits, or if you have a sweet tooth like me, try adding some chocolate chips or making some golden syrup or oat and honey biscuits!


Makes: 12-15 Biscuits
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 30 mins


  • 4oz Lard
    Alternatively, you can use an unsalted butter
  • 8oz Self Raising Flour
  • 4oz Oats
  • 3oz Sugar
  • 1 egg


  • Scales
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Rolling pin
    If you do not have a rolling pin then grab a bottle or tin of some sort
  • Cookie-cutter
    If you do not have a cookie-cutter, try using the rim of a glass to cut your shape


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas mark 6

  2. Melt the lard in a pan over medium heat.

  3. Add all dry ingredients (self-raising flour, oats and sugar) in a mixing bowl and gently mix.

  4. Pour the now slightly cooled lard into the dry mix and stir.

  5. Add 1 beaten egg and stir until the mix becomes a dough.

    If the dough still feels sticky then add a little more flour to the mix and knead.

  6. Dust your worktop with some flour and roll out your dough.

    As oat biscuits are quite crumbly, I would suggest making these a little bit thicker.

    If you do not have a rolling pin, then try using a cylindrical bottle or tin with smooth edges.

  7. Use your cookie-cutter to cut out your biscuit shape and peel away the spare trim.

    Use a touch more flour and roll the mixture out again to create some more biscuits from the dough.

    If you do not have a cookie-cutter, then try using the rim of a glass.

  8. Place biscuits on a baking tray covered with parchment paper.

  9. Bake for 20 minutes.

  10. Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes before eating.


Keep in a tin and eat within 3-4 days for best taste.
