Digestive Biscuits/ Whole Wheat Flour And Oats Cookies
With the breads under your wing you can now start looking at baking some interesting everyday healthy cookies. The digestive biscuits are my new found fad which I like to munch on as much as possible, The fact that DH also loves it makes it easier to try them. I am sharing a basic recipe here today but I often play around with some small parts of the dough adding chocolate, cherries, orange, orange-chocolate flavors. You will do the same once you learn the basic. This one is relatively no fuss and almost foolproof recipe.
