Slimming World Oat Cookies

HexB Oat Cookies

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!

    Do these need to be stored in the fridge?

      They don't have to be but I would suggest it's best practice. Enjoy!

        Could I use Greek Yoghurt instead of Quark do you think?

          I can't see why not, I think that would still work well but let me know if you try it!

    Hi, I'm leaving a comment again as my first one hasn't come through it seems from a few wks ago. Thank you for the recipe. I wanted to ask, would you say these are dunkable? I'm really missing dunking hobnobs & digestives! The healthier biscuit/cookie recipes I've tried have all been too soft. Hope you can help!
    1. Cliona

      16/02/2020 at 10:22 pm

      I would say that these were on the softer side too. The kind you're describing are usually made with lots of butter and sugar which makes them automatically less healthy.

    These were very easy to make only problem is I can’t get them off baking parchment without them crumbling to bits. So can’t eat them.
    1. Cliona

      Hi Lyn, sorry to hear that! You may need to bake them a little longer so that they separate from the parchment. Hope that helps!

    Hi there, looking for something to nibble that are low syn so these sound perfect. I don’t use sweeteners as I hate the flavour that it gives . Have you ever used honey as an alternative to the sweetener of banana for example?
    1. Cliona

      14/05/2021 at 9:22 pm

      You could definitely use honey instead, if you are following Slimming World you would just need to account for it in the syns.

    I made these today but added 1tsp honey, (omitted some sugar) and 1tsp of grated ginger and they were really nice. I cooked them for 12 mins and they came out perfect. I may drizzle some chocolate on top next time, I am taking it that 5 biscuits = HEXB Or 6 syns for 5
