These are a traditional biscuits in Northern Ireland. Sometimes dipped in chocolate but equally delicious left plain.
I like these because they’re quick to make and are made from ingredients that you can usually find in the cupboard.
They can be a bit crumbly when you are trying to roll and cut them out, but they squish back into shape.

110 Grams Butter
55 Grams Sugar
30 Grams Plain flour
150 Grams Porridge oats
30 Grams Dessicated Coconut
1/4 Tsp Bicarbonate of soda
Chocolate for dipping (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 160 degrees (Celsius)
- Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy
- Combine all the other ingredients before adding to the butter and sugar, work together with your hands until the ingredients come together in a ball
- I find it easier to roll out the mix between 2 sheets of baking paper but you can also roll it out on a floured surface
- Roll out to about 0.5cm thick and cut out and place on a baking sheet, leave a little space between them as they will spread
- Bake for 15 minutes before cooling on a wire wrack
