Milk, white or dark chocolate – use whatever you fancy to coat these crisp oat biscuits.

Ingredients

Low Fat Spread

40 g

Caster Sugar

40 g

Egg, whole, raw

1 medium, raw

Ground Ginger

½ teaspoons, level

Wholemeal Flour

50 g

Porridge oats

65 g

Baking powder

1 teaspoons, level

Dark Chocolate

50 g

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the low-fat spread and sugar using a hand-held electric whisk or wooden spoon. Beat in the egg, a little at a time, until well combined.
  3. Spoon 12 walnut-size balls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between them to spread out, then flatten slightly with the back of the spoon. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool lightly, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the ginger, flour, oats and baking powder. Make a well in the centre and add the spread and egg mixture, then gently stir together – taking care not to overmix.
  5. When the biscuits have cooled, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of boiling water, or in the microwave. Dip one half of each biscuit in the melted chocolate, then return to the wire rack to set.
