Super easy recipe for rustic oat biscuits with raisins and cinnamon – ready to eat in 20 minutes – perfect for putting in lunchboxes for the kids. 

Delicious homemade oat biscuits

Delicious oat biscuits with raisins and cinnamon often pop back up in my kitchen as soon as we hit September and the children go back to school.

The little oaty biscuit, dotted with raisins and flavoured with cinnamon are a very popular addition to lunchboxes.

A nice filling oat and raisin biscuit – ideal for seeing your little ones through a busy afternoon of school work and oh so perfect with a glass of icy cold milk.

As the oat biscuits cook the smell of cinnamon wafts from the kitchen. I always think cinnamon has a homely comforting smell and reminds me of being a tiny girl sat in my grandmas kitchen watching her bake.

I like to make these with Quaker Oats Jumbo Rolled Oats – they make the oat biscuits just that little bit junkier and chewy.

The oat biscuits will keep in an air tight container like a biscuit tin for around 3-4 days…. although they’re usually all eaten way before then!

A fab lunchbox recipe.

I must admit although I do bake trays of these as lunchbox treats I do love a delicious oat biscuit myself with a cup of Earl Grey tea.

Perfect little pick-me-up before the school-run!
