3. Tips for baking Oat Biscuits

When the wind whistles outside, what could be better than a good cup of tea with oat biscuits!

… And when the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming we drink coffee with it 🙂

What a Swedish furniture store offers, you can not only copy but also refine.

Chopped nuts or almonds as well as dried fruits (cranberries, raisins, etc.) give your biscuit a new aroma. 

It is also delicious to dip the biscuits into liquid chocolate after baking.

I’ve written down a few combinations that will tickle your taste buds – all with oats, of course:

What do you think I chose? Look here…

You don’t need cookie jars for these cookies.

One teaspoon for the round biscuits on the tray is enough.

WARNING: Now comes a picture only for strong nerves…

4. Christmas Oat Biscuits Ideas

At Christmas time we also want to eat our beloved oat biscuits.

That’s why we bake them a bit more Christmassy with cinnamon, anise, ginger and cardamom.

Or, we use the finished gingerbread spice.

At Christmas I also like rum aroma and honey as a sugar substitute.

5. Keep Oat Biscuits

I prefer to store my biscuits in a tin cookie jar, which I lay out with baking paper.

Just as good is the storage in other tightly closed containers made of glass or ceramic.

The most important thing is that your cookies can rest dry, cool and dark.

If you want to give your biscuits away to your favourite people, how about a pretty tin can as packaging? So your candy stays crispy, fresh and delicious.
