Chocolate Oaties

Last night I had the urge for some chocolate oat biscuits like I used to have at break time when I was at Middle School in Long Stratton.  They always came out warm from the oven and had a soft and sweet chocolate icing topping.

I made something similar with my friend Nicky during my A-levels so I thought I'd see if I could look for a recipe online.  All the recipes use a chocolate topping rather than what I remember being a slightly gooey chocolate icing.

In the end I went for this recipe - (Adapted from here)

  • 225g (8 oz) margarine
  • 225g (8 oz) caster sugar
  • 225g (8 oz) self-raising flour.
  • 140g (5 oz) porridge oats
  • 55g (2 oz) cocoa
  • Icing sugar and 2 tsp cocoa powder for covering
Preparation method
Prep:15  minsCook:15  mins | Extra time:30min, chilling
In a large pan melt together margarine and sugar.
When sugar is completely dissolved remove from heat and mix in oats, cocoa and nuts. Mix in self-raising flour.
Turn into a 20x30cm (13x9 in) baking tray and press down well.
Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 15 minutes.
Cool then cover with chocolate icing. Chill to set.


  1. I remember making these!! I'll be making these armed with my wooden spoon soon!

    Ps two words caramel shortbread!
