These delicious little oat bite biscuits are the perfect morning or afternoon tea accompaniment to a cuppa.

I really liked the blend of orange, lemon and cardamom flavours. The honey and raisins give a delightful sweetness.

Makes 10-12.

Ingredients

  • 3–5 cardamom pods, to taste
  • 300g oats
  • 6 tbsp honey
  • Finely grated zest of 1 unwaxed lemon, plus juice of 1⁄2 lemon
  • Finely grated zest of 1 unwaxed orange, plus juice of 1⁄2 orange
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp plant-based milk (I used oat milk)
  • 40g raisins

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Crush cardamom pods with the side of a knife. Take the seeds out and grind with a mortar and pestle.
  3. Place 200g of oats into a food processor and blitz for 30 seconds, or until they form a flour.
  4. Place ground cardamom and ground oats in a large bowl and add remaining ingredients, including the remaining 100g of oats. Stir well until a nice sticky mix forms. Your mixture should be damp, not runny or wet.
  5. Scoop 1 tablespoon of mixture into your hand and roll into a ball. Place it on the prepared tray and flatten. Repeat to make up to 12 biscuits.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Leave on tray to cool completely, they will firm up, then serve.
