  • Oat Biscuits:
  • 120 grams whole rolled oats

  • ½ teaspoon bi-carb soda
  • 2-3 tablespoon honey
  • 100 grams butter, diced

  • Jam:
  • 125 grams fresh or frozen strawberries
  • ½ cup granny smith apple, skin on grated, with liquid
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • Add water as necessary (optional)

Preheat oven to 180C.

  1. Oat Biscuits:
  2. To make the biscuits, add oats to a food processor, pulse until fine. Add the spelt flour, coconut and bi-carb to the mixture and pulse a few times until combined. Add butter and honey, process mixture until combined and resembles breadcrumbs. Add egg to the mixture and process until mixture comes together, adding a bit of water if necessary.
  3. Remove the mixture from the food processor and knead on a lightly floured bench. Form the dough into a log, wrap in cling wrap, refrigerate until firm, approx. 30-40mins.
  4. Take the dough out of the fridge, roll dough into balls, place on lined baking tray and flatten with a fork, trying to make each biscuit the same size.
  5. Bake in the oven at 180C for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned, set aside to cool.
