Oat Wafers

Oat Wafers

If you’re making a knickerbocker glory then you need a wafer right? This has been my quandary for a few weeks now, after much research I decided that a delicious biscuit was an acceptable replacement for a sugary cardboard wafer plus you only need a couple for the knickerbocker glory so there’s plenty of biscuits leftover for general eating – win win!

Oat Wafers

90g oats
3 tbsp olive or coconut oil
2 tbsp desiccated coconut (plus extra for sprinkling)
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp milk of your choice

  1. Pre-heat your oven to gas mark 5/190 degrees
  2. In a food processor or blender, blitz the oats until they turn into a flour like texture. If you don’t have a food processor you can leave the oats as they are, your biscuits will just be chunkier in texture
  3. Transfer the oat flour to a bowl and mix in all the other ingredients to form a soft dough
  4. Wrap the dough in cling film and place in the freezer to firm up for 20-25 minutes, this makes the dough easier to roll out and cut into your desired shapes. You could just hand shape the dough into biscuit shapes and bypass the freezer stage
  5. Rollout the dough to approx. 5mm thick and cut out your biscuits. Sprinkle each biscuit with a pinch of coconut and place on a baking tray
  6. Bake for 15 minutes until golden, leave to cool before eating as they will crisp up
  7. Serve with your knickerbocker glory or enjoy as they are!
