With Australia Day and going back to school happening all in one week, it's the perfect time to bake some healthy snacks for lunch boxes and picnics.

Seriously, I don't know about your house but when there is a batch of oat biscuits come out of the oven, it is NOT the flies that swarm into the kitchen, it is another species with 2 legs and bottomless pits it seems. I had to hide this batch to enable us to get a photo before they disappear.

Finding a healthy snack for lunch boxes is always my goal and this recipe ticks all the boxes.

4 ingredients make this combination super easy, so give it a go and send us some of your creations.



  • 1 cup of GF Oats
  • 4 tbs butter (or 60g) *or alternative
  • 2 tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 2 tbsp of banana flour or gluten-free flour


    1. Melt the butter
    2. Mix ingredients together
    3. Take teaspoons full and place on a paper-lined tray, giving room to spread
    4. Flatten out a little
    5. Bake for 12 mins at 180C (360F)‚ now watch them as your oven may be different than mine. You want to see a beautiful golden colour.
    6. Don't touch them until they cool completely.
    TIP: They should spread quite thinly across the tray, if they don't, you added a little too much flour. If they are too thin, add a sprinkle more flour. Either way, they are seriously delicious.
