These tasty biscuits are a far cry from the starch and cholesterol bombs which are found on supermarket shelves. Whilst children will love them, they should still be viewed as occasional treats. Therefore, we cannot be held responsible for the lack of self discipline from parents who constantly reach for the biscuit barrel when it is stocked full of these amazing sensual delights…

Use raw Demerara sugar as it contains higher levels of vitamins and minerals in comparison to conventional sugar, thus making these biscuits better for your children’s health and tastier too! Serve them at parties and you are sure to be asked for the recipe by other parents…

- 125G (4 oz) 100% whole wheat self raising flour
- 60g (2 oz) rolled oats
- 150g (4 oz) whole wheat semolina
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 60g (2 oz) raw Demerara sugar
- Juice and grated rind and peel of one sweet orange
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 125g (4 oz) dairy free margarine

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F, 177°C, gas Mark 4

Put the flour, oats, sugar, semolina and ground cinnamon into a large bowl and blend together.

Melt the soya margarine over a warm heat and stir in the lemon juice, grated orange rind and peel.

Add to the bowl of dry ingredients and fold to make smooth dough.

Lightly flour a work surface and roll to approximately ½ cm (1/4 in) in thickness.

Use a pastry cutter to make shaped, flat biscuits or simply drop small spoonfuls of the dough onto a greased baking sheet.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes until nicely browned.

Cool on a wire rack and wait patiently for them to cool before diving in!
