Oat Drop Biscuits

We’ve been trying to include more oats into our daily diet. Sometimes, especially during the week, there isn’t quite enough time to have a bowl of oatmeal (don’t talk to me about that instant crap) for breakfast. So, I’ve started to do some testing in the kitchen for other suitable, but quicker delivery methods. A friend armed me with several recipes she had come across (thank you, again), including one for a drop biscuit. So, I’m starting this testing period with a modified drop biscuit.

The results were, to say the least, quite tasty. A cup of tea, a dab of jam, and we were ready to settle in for the night.

Recipe for Oatmeal Currant Drop Biscuit

Preheat oven to 475º

In separate small bowl, soak with 4 Tbsp boiling water:
2 Tbsp chopped dates
1/3 cup currants (or more, if you want)

Add to above ingredients (after soaking for a few minutes):
2/3 cup unsweetened kefir
1 cup rolled oats

Mix together and let sit while you prepare the following:

Sift together:
1 cup whole wheat flout
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon

Combine above dry ingredients with 1 stick butter (chilled and cubed) until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Add wet ingredients and gently mix until a wet sticky dough forms (don’t over mix!). Drop by tablespoon on to buttered baking sheet (I actually just grease the spot I’m dropping the biscuit) and pat/form into puck-shaped disk. Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes. Makes about 12-15 biscuits.

Try to save some for breakfast the next day :).

  1. I bake healthy muffins (from my own recipes) every week. I use oats in my banana muffins along with fresh ground golden flax seed. I also have my own recipe for healthy date squares that uses alot of rolled oats.

  2. Hey Jody, we would love to try out your recipes too if you care to share!

  3. I would be happy to share.. I am eating my oatmeal muffins right now with a cup of tea 🙂 Pls just give me a day or two to put the recipes on the computer and then I will send them to you.

  4. Ooo, I just finished a nice warm bowl of porrige for an afternoon snack. Have you tried the old – make a pot for the week and warm a bowl at time? I use a combination of the steel cut oats and oat bran to bet a nice mucilaginous texture. Yumm. I don’t know if you’d get the same effect with rolled oats though. And I might just have to try some of those biscuits for taking on the road!

  5. Hi…I have the recipes printed out…how would you like me to send them to you?

  6. Jody, I’ll contact you. Thanks!!
