Oat Crackers

I wanted to make homemade Digestive Biscuits, because I really like the crunchiness and the flavour and it goes so well together with my evening tea, or as a quick pre-dinner snack if I'm super hungry. These crackers are not very similar to a Digestive Biscuit, but I like the flavour and they were simple to make. And since it's almost no sugar in these crackers, they are definitely guilt-free and something you an enjoy every day:-) I like to eat them plain, but they are also very nice together with cream cheese and cucumber or a slice of brie and jam.

However, if any of you have a recipe for the real deal, Digestive Biscuits, please let me know! I've been searching for it a while now, and the recipe below is the most similar I've found so far. These crackers are indeed very nice, but they are no Digestive Biscuit, if you know what i mean:-)

Oat Crackers, 40 crackers
100 grams butter
1 1/2 dl water (150 ml)
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 dl fiber porridge oats (300 ml)
3 dl flour (300 ml)
2 tsp baking powder

Preheat the oven at 200 degrees C.

Melt butter in a saucepan, add water and stir. Add the other ingredients and combine to a dough. Divide the dough into two. Flatten the dough on a baking table sprinkled with flour. Roll your dough thin, about 30 x 30 cm, sprinkle some flour on top of your dough so it doesn't get stuck onto the roller.

Use a glass or pastry cutter to make your crackers, and place each cracker onto an oven papered covered baking plate. Prick small holes in each cracker, otherwise your crackers will rise during baking.

Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10-15 minutes until golden. The crackers get a nicer flavour if nice golden coloured instead of too light.

Let the oat crackers cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container or freeze.

  1. They look like actual retail crackers :) great job!

  2. I made some "Digestive biscuits" the other day and added brown sugar to the dough.. I guess real Digestive biscuits contains a lot of sugar, and fat :) Yours looks just like mine :)

  3. Mmm I've never made homemade crackers before, these look delicious! :)


Thanks for stopping by! I LOVE comments and I read them all, but may not respond to all:-)
