Oaty carrot & date brekkie biccies

I love a breakfast biscuit – something chunky oaty and filling.  These are easy to whip up and are perfect for a grab as you go brekkie with coffee.  There is a good amount of fruit and goodness in these biccies with a carrot thrown in for extra goodness, so you can have a guilt free biscuit.  These are also vegan, sugar free and dairy free.

The mixture gets quite sticky when you are rolling the biscuits – so be warned you will get sticky hands!

Oaty carrot & date brekkie biccies

oaty-carrot-and-date-biccies

  • 120g oats
  • 100g pitted dates
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons mixed spice
  • 1 large carrot – grated
  • 1 apple – grated
  • 1 ripe banana – mashed
  • The zest and juice of one large orange

Method

  • Line a couple of baking trays with baking paper.
  • Put the oats and dates into a food processor and process for a couple of minutes.  You want the dates to be well chopped.  Add the flour, baking powder and spice and pulse very briefly to mix it all together.
  • Add this mix to the carrot, apple, banana and orange zest and juice.
  • Give it a good mix and then get your hand in to bring it together into a very sticky dough.
  • Take clumps of the dough to shape into a ball and put onto the baking sheets – press them down slightly to make a thick biscuit shape.  This should make around 8-10 biccies.
  • Cook for 25 minutes, oven 350f/ 180c/ Gas 4.  The biccies should look nicely browned on top and be slightly brown on the bottoms.  Leave to cool.
