Oat and Fig biscuits (Gluten Free)


I usually make this with raisins instead of figs but someone (Josie!) doesn’t like raisins so here is a version for those who also dislike raisins. Feel free to put in any or a mix of dried fruit, I imagine cranberries would also be delicious.

Plain flour can also be substituted for ground almonds if you are not gluten intolerant.

We baked them for about 15 minutes so that they would be golden and crispy. Bake them a bit less if you want them soft and take them out of the oven when they are just starting to brown on the sides. Let them cool before taking them off the baking sheet as they crumble easily when warm.


Makes 10

1 egg
100g sugar
50g butter
50g ground almonds
125g chopped figs
175g oats
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder

1. Turn on the oven to 180°C

4. Mix in the ground almonds, salt and baking powder

5. Add the chopped figs and oats and mix thoroughly

6. Scoop some of the mix in your hands and form a little ball.

7. Flatten the ball in your palm and place on a greased or lined baking tray.

8. Repeat for the rest of the mix.


9. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
