Homemade Digestive Bicuits/Graham crackers

Hello everyone, today I got you all a very easy and quick to bake recipe of  whole wheat and oats  biscuits. They are almost like Digestive biscuits or the graham crackers.
I am relocating from London to India in a week, hence quite busy in winding up everything. This is the reason that frequency of my posts have become less.

Had very few ingredients left in my pantry, not doing much of cooking and trying to use all the leftovers. Baked these crunchy biscuits, which have a very nice flavour. They are mildly sweet and buttery. You can use them for making cheesecakes even. I saw this kind of recipe on YouTube by Steve Owen and adored it too much. So without wasting much of the time, here is the recipe with a video.

Video Recipe Link :

Ingredients :

  • Whole wheat flour : 3/4 cup
  • Coarse oat flour : 3/4 cup (Grind quick cooking rolled oats)
  • Brown sugar : 1/2 cup (tightly packed)
  • Butter : 60 gms (I have used salted butter. You can use unsalted even, just add a pinch of salt)
  • Baking Soda : 1/2 tsp
  • Milk : 2-3 tbsps
Method :
  • In a  mixing bowl, take both the flours, sugar, baking soda and mix well. 
  • Now add in the room temperature butter and mix it with your fingers. You will get a bread crumb kind of a texture.
  • Now add a couple of tbsps of milk and try to form a dough. Don't overwork with it.
  • Cover the dough with a cling wrap and keep it in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes. Doing this will make the dough workable and you can easily roll it.
  • Take the dough out and roll it thin (approx 1/4 cm) and cut it into desired shapes. I might be a little difficult to roll it as it might tier but no need to worry, just accumulate with your palms and roll.
  • Place them on a baking tray lined with Baking paper/silicon mat.
  • Bake them into a preheated oven at 180°C for 15-18 minutes (depending on the oven). Mine were done for exactly 17 minutes and also for a nice golden colour I kept them on broil for 30 secs.
  • Place them on a cooling rack and let them cool completely. Store in an air tight container.
