I do like a good oat biscuit. We’ve been making a lot of apple purée from all the apples in the garden and, rather than solely eating it like baby food, I wanted to make some semi-seasonal (it’s got ginger in) biscuits out of it. They taste really good. They do have a lot of fat in, though, but it’s all ‘good’ fat, so I don’t feel guilty eating three of these bad boys at once!
