Digestive biscuits are one of our most popular commercially-baked biscuit varieties . YES , I'm talking about making the very famous crummy yummy Home Made Digestive biscuits. It is a biscuit with a crumbly texture and a simple flavor which some people find quite appealing.While surfing net for baking cookies i got this recipe I inspired by this easy recipe and made it yesterday.I found digestive Biscuit here.
I made few changes I didn’t add all purpose flour and wheat germ. I made it with wheat flour. instead of oil I use butter. Somehow I feel sweet is not enough so I add few more sugar the result was Fantastic and which turned out delicious!

Whole wheat flour -200g

Baking powder -1 tsp

Pinch of salt 

 Brown sugar -50g *(For some, the result may not be sweet enough- maybe increase the sugar as90gm)

 Oatmeal -50g

 Butter -100g

Enough milk

1.Place oats in a mixer and grind until powdery texture is obtained.

2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. 

3.Then add the butter and mix until crumbly. 

4.Add the milk and mix dough so it is no longer crumbly but a bit more firm.

5. Form a ball and place in fridge for 15 minutes. 

6.Then take out dough, spread out to 3mm thickness and cut out 6cm diameter circles.

7.Cut to the required size using a round cutter and place onto a greased baking sheet .

8.Preheat oven to 180Cand Bake for 15 minutes, take out and let cool and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
