anyone for a biscuit?


It's been AGES since I posted a bikkie recipe here!

I guess there was always the chance it was something that might make it into the Buena Vista Farm repertoire, and so I've been a little cagey about recipes this last year. 

You HAVE to have this one though. 



It's similar to a biscuit we made commercially called the Treehouse Treat, which was much lower sugar than all our other biscuits and sweetened with cranberries.

I like this one better.

This is the one that I make for kids lunchboxes (and my Dad's bikkie jar!)

Chocolate Chip Bikkie


125g butter, melted

½ cup caster sugar (or use white if you only have that. Raw sugar doesn't work as well.)

1 free range egg

2 cups wholemeal flour

4 tsp baking powder

½ cup rolled oats

½ cup choc chips


  • Melt the butter. Stir into the sugar in a big bowl and combine well.
  • Beat in the egg.
  • In a seperate bowl whisk the flour and the baking powder. (Or sift, I just never sift, I whisk instead. Wholemeal flour is a pain in the bum to try and sift!) 
  • Add the flour and the oats to the butter and sugar and mix well, then add the choc chips and mix.
  • Roll small balls and press down with a fork.
  • Bake approx 15 mins on 180 deg till golden. Cool on wire racks.


It's a delicious little mouthful of bikkie!

Cup of tea?
