  • ⅓cup honey
  • 80 g butter or monounsaturated fat spread, melted
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup self-raising flour, sifted
  • ½ cup wholemeal self-raising flour, sifted
  • 1 apple, peeled and grated
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/140°C fan-forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Place the honey, butter and cocoa powder in a small microwave-safe dish, then melt on medium for 1 minute until the butter has just melted. Stir well to combine and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Place the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, add the apple and toss through the flour to coat. Add the egg, then the honey mixture and stir well. Spoon about 1 tablespoon mixture onto the baking trays about 2–3 cm apart, press down slightly.
  4. Bake biscuits for 10–12 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside on the trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

Health tip:  Making  biscuits is a great activity for toddlers to help with. You can let them help add the ingredients, and then stir. They can also help lick the wooden spoon as a treat!

Cook’s tip:  Allow enough room for the biscuits to spread.  To cook the biscuits more consistently throughout, take out of the oven after about 5 minutes and carefully turn over, and return to the oven for another 5–7 minutes.  These biscuits should be a soft consistency as the fat and sugar content are not high enough to make it crunchy.
