  • 1-2 tbsp milk

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 150g unsalted butter

  • 150g plain wholemeal flour

  • 150g medium oatmeal

  • 1 tbsp bran

  • 75g demarara sugar


  1. Put the flour, oatmeal, bran, salt, baking powder and sugar into a bowl and combine the mixture together.
  2. Add the chunks of butter and rub them into the mixture. Then stir in the milk with a round-bladed knife.
  3. Lift the dough out of the bowl, flatten into a thick disc and wrap in clingfilm. Chill for 30 minutes until firm.
  4. Set the disc of dough between 2 sheets of clingfilm and roll out to 4mm thick. Stamp out rounds with a cutter and set slightly apart on the greased baking sheets.
  5. Prick each several times with a fork (optional) then chill in the fridge for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile heat your oven to 190c/375F/Gas Mark 5.
  6. Bake the biscuits for 12 mins and then when they're ready cool for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
