Biscuits are easily and quickly baked using a few simple ingredients and have stood the test of time. Recipes are handed down the generations, a firm favourite being these delicious Oatie Biscuits which have a few added luxury ingredients, including dried cranberries and chocolate chips. What’s not to like? These home baked tasty Oatie biscuits are full of natural ingredients, so they must be good for you!
A spoonful of sugar
As humans we naturally crave sweet things so it’s little wonder that biscuits are so popular. Apparently the most loved biscuit in the UK is the chocolate Digestive. It was originally created by Alexander Grant, an apprentice baker at McVities. His original recipe is a closely guarded secret and still used today!
The Digestive was so called because it contained bicarbonate of soda which was thought to help digestion. Now covered in chocolate they are not quite so healthy, but they make the perfect dunking biscuit.
To dunk or not to dunk?
The chocolate digestive is also the best biscuit for dunking into your tea. The chocolate coating holds the biscuit mixture together so it can be dunked for longer than the plain Digestive, Ginger Nut or HobNob!
Did you know that dunking your biscuit can be hazardous? Be warned, a 2009 study found 25 million people had scalded themselves retrieving soggy bits of biscuit dropped into their cup of tea!
Bet you can’t resist a biscuit now you’ve seen such mouth-watering photos of these Oatie biscuits! So, go on treat yourself to a biscuit today in celebration of National Biscuit Day, and if you’re going to dunk only do so for a few seconds!
