|Henrietta Inman, author of The Natural Baker, and resident cook and baker at Wakelyns Agroforestry, is currently exploring the use of whole crop rotations in baking. Henrietta's ingredients are all local to Wakelyns, but for a vegan version substitute maple or apple syrup for the honey and a hard coconut oil for the butter.|
We love a biscuit with our morning coffee, so we were particularly delighted when Henrietta sent over this simple recipe. Half way between a digestive and a hobnob - but better than either - they a crunchy and malty biscuit that makes for a perfect mid-morning pick-me-up!
I love to use large rather than rolled oats for extra texture. Naked oats are also great in this recipe. Swap them in for half of the quantity of oats. They are good processed a little in a blender of spice grinder
If you don’t have malted wheat flakes, use more wholemeal flour.
This makes quite a big mix so you could always halve it.

This easy and versatile dish makes the most of seasonal fruit for a superb late summer dessert - or even a whole meal! It's especially lovely made with little yellow mirabelle plums, which have a wonderful honeydew sweetness.
