Homemade Hobnobs
 
Ingredients
  • ¼ cups oats
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 9 tablespoons salted butter
  • ½ tablespoon light corn syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 oz melted semi sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Toss all of your dry ingredients into a food processor, and mix until blended. Add your wet ingredients and pulse until butter is completely incorporated.
  2. The mixture will look pretty dry, but will stick together. Roll the mixture into small balls, and flatten them into disc shapes.
  3. Bake for about 12 minutes, until the edges begin to brown slightly. Let cool completely. When cool, you can add some melted chocolate to the top of the biscuit. I melted chocolate chips in a double boiler and just scooped a small bit of melted chocolate onto each one, spreading it around the top.
  4. I then ran a toothpick through the chocolate to mimic the design on the top of store bought hobnobs.

Serve with tea, milk or by themselves! These are a delicious, oat-ey, slightly nutty treat! I like to keep my chocolate hobnobs in the fridge. I don’t know why, but I think they taste better slightly cool. My little man LOVES the plain ones, and they because I use whole wheat flour and they aren’t too sugary, I don’t feel bad about treating him to some from time to time.

 

What are your favorite British biscuits? Have a recipe for them? I’d love to see it!

  1. I just finished making these. (I couldn’t find the oven temperature in your recipe but 350 worked.) Although they’ are delicious, they don’t taste like Hobnobs at all. Too sweet and buttery, not enough oats.

    1. Thanks, Rebecca! I love your site and just signed up to follow you! I love your jacket cushion tutorial- so fun!!! Thanks for stopping by- and let me know how you like them! They aren’t an exact match, but very close and quite delicious!
