People who say Perth is boring have never been more wrong.

A great one for the kids to help out with, and so easy to make! You could even make them in the morning for a school or work snack - they're that quick.
I was feeling a bit under the weather and wanted to do something instead of just sitting around all day feeling sorry for myself. So I thought about what ingredients I had in my pantry to make a snack - oats, lots of honey, and the usual butter, flour, bi-carb, and sugar. And lucky me, that's all it takes to make these delicious rolled oat biscuits (recipe here). One batch makes about ten biscuits, depending on how big you want them. Don't forget to transfer the biscuits on to a wire rack to cool for at least 5 minutes.
Five minutes to mix it up. Five minutes in the oven. Five minutes to cool. That's 15 minutes to make biscuits.
Here are a few tips and tweaks for you to try:
1. If using a fan forced oven, preheat your oven to 200° and cook for 5 minutes or until brown. When cooking a second batch, turn down the heat to 180° to avoid burning.
2. Spice it up with some nutmeg, cinnamon, or a sprinkle of vanilla sugar on top.
3. For a healthy option - use half the sugar and replace with raisins or sultanas, and use honey instead of treacle or maple syrup.
4. Get the kids to use their hands (washed first, of course) to mix up the biscuit mixture - they'll enjoy the sticky texture.
5. Replace walnuts with almonds or hazelnuts if preferred.
6 Pack biscuits in an air tight container lined with paper towels to soak up any moisture.
