Before I start this recipe, I’m going to tell you now that as far as I’m concerned, nothing beats a Hob Nob! Unfortunately, for those of us who aren’t gifted with speedy metabolisms and self control, hobnobs can prove a tiny bit problematic.
So if you’re a Slimming World-er like me, or you’re simply looking for a healthier alliterative then these might just be perfect for you.
Most of the recipes for oat cookies I’ve seen give you quite a thick biscuit, more like a flapjack, but I wanted to make these a bit thinner. They’re still not crunchy like I digestive, but the addition of Quark into the recipe made them a bit more manageable as a quick nibble, as opposed to a weighty flapjack. The quark is however not a necessity for this recipe so, if you prefer, do go ahead and leave it out. Either way these biscuits will satisfy your sweet craving and what’s more they only take 15 minutes to make and with 5 counting as your HexB choice you get two day’s worth from this recipe so you’re basically winning on all fronts!
Have five of these as your HexB choice and snack away!
- 70g Porridge Oats
- 2 Eggs
- 15g Sweetener
- 1tbsp Quark
- 2tsp Vanilla Essence
- 1tsp Cinnamon (optional)
- Mix all of the ingredients together thoroughly.
- Line a baking tray with baking paper, and spray with Fry Light.
- Using a table spoon, spoon the mixture onto the baking tray and pat it down a little leaving enough room on either side to allow it to spread out a little.
- Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, or until the edges have started to crisp up a little bit.
5 as your HexB option.
