These traditional style biscuits are vegan & free from refined sugar, gluten, diary & wheat*
Going vegan happened fairly smoothly for me, but Tarron missed a traditional biscuit for coffee dipping; And I won’t have anyone saying going vegan has to mean missing out. I present my fave versitile biscuit. Just like a hobnob that’s as kind to your body as it is to your taste buds, and can be altered to your (or your partner’s) taste.

Spoon Rating: 🥄 (low energy)
Standing Up For: 10 minutes
Total Cooking Time: 20 minutes
what do I need?
- 50g raw organic coconut sugar
- 100g coconut oil
- 100g gluten-free porridge oats
- 50g buckwheat flour (you could also use coconut or brown rice flour if you fancy)
- And a large pinch of Himalayan pink salt
What should I do?
- Pre-heat your oven to 160℃ / 140℃ if you have a fan oven. Rub a small amount of coconut oil over 2 baking trays to grease. I use kitchen roll.
- For this recipe you can do all the boring weighing in one step by putting a large bowl on some scales. Add sugar to the bowl, reset scale, add oil to the bowl, and reset scale. At this point (to make it quicker to cream) you can stick your bowl in the pre-heating oven to soften – if you are using a ceramic, glass or metal bowl and you are careful getting it out of the oven after a minute!
- Cream oil and sugar until smooth. Add oats, reset scale, add flour, and reset scale. Stir or kneed until the mixture is smooth.
- Roll out to a thickness of about 5mm onto a floured surface and cut into rounds OR Lightly flour your hands and roll into evenly sized balls and press into rounds. Placing the rounds on your prepared baking trays, baking in your pre-heated oven and having a rest for about 20 minutes (or until they begin to go golden brown).
- Cool and consume.
