Homemade Digestives

Homemade digestives really remind me of my Granny. Sturdy beasts of burden, ready to carry any quantity of cheese with lashings of butter and some onion jam smeared on top for good measure. Full of goodness, and not at all sweet, and one will definitely suffice! Also great to make with the kids, particularly if you have a food processor.


125g oats
125g butter – I used a mix of nut butter and unsalted butter
50g jaggery
2 tblsp milk
125g wholewheat flour
pinch of salt (optional)


These are most easily made with a food processor. Chuck the oats in and blitz them until not quite fine, but a coarse flour. Add the butter and blitz. Dissolve the jaggery in milk (I used the microwave to warm up the milk which made it easier to dissolve the sugar). Pour in the jaggery mix and blitz. Finally add the flour and a pinch of salt. Pull together and allow to rest in the fridge for 20 minutes. Heat your oven to 180 degrees. Remove the biscuit mix and roll out with a rolling pin. Cut into shapes, place on greasproof paper / a well oiled baking sheet / silicone baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
