oaty biscuits (aka Gobnobs)

After my daughter was born, I used to spend a lot of time with my friend, drinking tea and indulging our shared passion for hobnobs (the homemade version we like to call gobnobs).  She has moved away now, but when I found out yesterday that she was going to be visiting today, there was nothing for it – I had to get my bake on!

When I mentioned on Facebook earlier that this is what I was going to be spending my morning doing, I was told that it was a blog post that needed writing!  It would appear that other people want to share our love of this oaty goodie.

So here it is; if you try it I hope you love it as much as we do.

Edited:  Louloo had a go at making these herself for the Kids Make and Bake club.  We hope you enjoy her vlog.

Have a great day, Maria x
