Milk chocolate Digestive Biscuits

I love Biscuits as does everyone I’m sure, well I was looking through my copy of Miranda Gore Browne recipe Book Biscuit as she is a biscuit queen there are so many favourites I’ve found in there.


There was no picture of these and yes I was supposed to use dark chocolate but only had milk in the cupboard so thought hey ho and gave it a try and the out come well I was pleasantly surprised. They tasted quiet healthy than your usual biscuit which I’m sure they are not but never mind they went well with my coffee and a great little treat.

So here is the recipe I have adapted it a little.


Makes at least 16 I did get 20 out of mine depends how thick you make them.

250g plain wholemeal flour
50g oatmeal or you can use rolled oats
1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2tsp salt
50g light brown sugar
125g unsalted butter straight from the fridge
5 tbsp semi skimmed milk
100g dark or milk chocolate

Begin by preheating the oven to 180’c gas mark 4, and line 2 baking trays with non stick baking paper.

Place the flour,oatmeal, bicarbonate of soda, salt and sugar into a large mixing bowl and mix well then add the butter I grated mine in then rub in with your fingertips till you have breadcrumbs.

Start adding your milk a little at a time to bring the mixture to a dough and then once you have your mixture looking like a big ball of dough divide into two and play one half in between two sheets of cling film and roll out till you have 3 mm thickness then using your selected cutter I used a 4 cm cutter. Cut out your biscuits and place on a baking tray leaving 3 cm between each biscuit. Using a skewer or a cocktail stick pierce the biscuits all the way round the edge this allows the biscuit to bake evenly, and bake for 20-25 mins till the biscuits are light golden colour leave on the tray for 10 mins then transfer to a wire rack to harden and cool.

Once all your biscuits are baked and have gone cold melt your chocolate in a microwave bowl or on the hob over simmering water which ever way you prefer. Place a small teaspoon of melted chocolate to each biscuit and smooth using the back of the teaspoon, so you have a nice even layer.

Allow the chocolate to set for a good hour before diving in.

Hope you enjoy them as much as we did. X
