Healthier Caramilk Kingston Biscuits (Vegan Option, Meal Prep)

Another week, another snack. This week I made some delicious biscuits (cookies), Kingston biscuits! They are a classic Australian biscuit – golden oatmeal sandwich cookies with a chocolate ganache centre, yum! But instead of using normal chocolate, I decided to use caramilk chocolate for the ganache because I love it and it is delicious! So, I am sharing with you my healthier caramilk Kingston biscuits. The biscuits are made with rolled oats, wholemeal flour, plain flour, desiccated coconut, sugar, oil and milk (so yes, all the good stuff!).

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have. As always, please let me know what you think of this recipe.

Makes 20 delicious sandwich biscuits

Ingredients

For the biscuits:

  • 1 cup wholemeal flour (or flour of your choice);
  • 1/2 rolled oats;
  • 1/2 cup plain flour;
  • 4 tbsp sugar (or more if your prefer sweeter biscuits – I didn’t use too much sugar as the caramilk is relatively sweet on its own);
  • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut;
  • 1 tsp baking powder;
  • 4 tbsp oil (neutral tasting oil – I used grapeseed oil);
  • 4 tbsp milk of your choice; and
  • Water (I needed about 6-8 tbsp of water).

For the caramilk ganache:

  • 90-100g caramilk chocolate (or vegan white chocolate or any chocolate of your choice).

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius and grease a large baking tray;
  2. In a food processor, place the wholemeal flour, oats, plain flour, coconut, sugar and baking powder and process until the mixture becomes well combined and almost a fine flour mixture;
  3. Then, add the oil and milk and process until the mixture is well combined – it will resemble bread crumbs now;
  4. Then, add water one tablespoon at a time and continue to process until the mixture become a cookie dough (I needed about 6-8 tbsp of water – you may need less or more);
  5. Once the mixture becomes a cookie dough, take a teaspoon full of dough and roll into a ball and then, flatten on the baking tray. Repeat this process until you have used up all the dough. You should get about 40 biscuit dough on the tray;
  6. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the biscuits become golden brown;
  7. Once the biscuits are baked, allow to cool;
  8. Once the biscuits are cooled, microwave the caramilk in a small bowl for 45-60 seconds (at 15-second intervals to prevent the chocolate from burning) until it melts;
  9. Using a teaspoon, take some melted caramilk and spread on the base of a biscuit. Take a second biscuit and sandwich together with the first. Allow to set for 5-10 minutes;
  10. Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea 😉

Happy baking,

Suba
