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!
3 tbsp olive or coconut oil
2 tbsp desiccated coconut (plus extra for sprinkling)
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp milk of your choice
- Pre-heat your oven to gas mark 5/190 degrees
- 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
- Transfer the oat flour to a bowl and mix in all the other ingredients to form a soft dough
- 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
- 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
- Bake for 15 minutes until golden, leave to cool before eating as they will crisp up
- Serve with your knickerbocker glory or enjoy as they are!
