Oat,Orange and Ginger Crisps

These Oat,Orange and Ginger Crisps were the tastiest biscuits I have made in a long time, they were super  easy to make, and they freeze incredibly well. I just get out a couple for the school lunch each day or may be one with a cup of coffee at night. 

 2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup plain ( all-purpose) flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
150g butter melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon finely grated orange rind

Preheat oven to 180C 350F. Place the oats, sugar, flour and ginger, in a bow and mix until combined. Add butter,egg, and orange  mix until combined. Place tablespoon of the mixture onto lined baking trays, leaving room for the crisps to spread. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden Allow crisps to cool on tray for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Makes 24.

  1. These look lovely, I'm always put off when a recipe uses 'cup' measures as I don't know how much that is in grams... do you know as I'd love to try these? Julie x

  2. When measuring other ingredients, the weight amount will be affected by the density of the ingredients – for example 1 cup of flour will weigh a lot more than 1 cup of Rice Bubbles.

Will definitely be making the cookies now, not this week though as we have lost part of our roof in the storms that hit england today so am busy trying to sort out insurance, loss adjusters etc... hoping for no rain!! Jx

  7. Sound and look great ... I shall have to give them a go! M x

  8. Wait wait - I haven't made the last cookies you posted yet. LOL Love your recipes - and I especially love crispy cookies - so this is going into my recipe folder. And I just have to ask - what are rice bubbles? Are they like our rice crispy cereal?

  9. They sound really different and unusual. I'd love to try them. They're going on the list. :)

  10. You really blow me away with your creations! These sound amazing! I bet the orange just adds an amazing flavor!!! Thanks for the recipe you!!!

  11. I think they look and sound wonderful. I love anything orangey flavoured.

  12. Hi GT! I've been catching up on your posts! I wish I had found your doggie biscuit recipe earlier. I've been looking after my sister-in-law's labs the past two long weekends ~ I bet they would have enjoyed those biscuit treats. I'll have to bake some for when I see Rufus and Gracie at American Thanksgiving. I want to try the OOG crisps above too. It's funny, Julie above, wants cups converted to grams, and I'm going to be googling grams to cups! Oh the joys of different measuring systems! My October Scavenger hunt post is almost done! I can't wait to see what everyone has found this month! Take care!

  13. These look so good. I love ginger and I love oats. I may need to find time to make these. Thank you for sharing!

  14. Yum these look and sound delicious, perfect with a cup of hot tea in the cold weather we've been having.
