Save recipe


  1. 1 cup rolled oats
  2. 1/2 cup plain flour
  3. 1/2 cup sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon orange zest
  5. 4 tablespoons orange juice
  6. 1/2 cup pomace olive oil or any neutral oil
  7. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  8. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  9. 2 tablespoons sliced almonds


  1. Grind the rolled oats in a coffee grinder.
  2. Whisk the olive oil and sugar using a hand or electric whisk till it becomes light and creamy. Add the orange juice, vanilla extract and orange zest. Whisk for another minute or till well combined.
  3. Sieve together the ground oats, plain flour and baking soda into the oil-sugar mixture. Add the sliced almonds.
  4. Mix everything well with your hands till the mixture comes together as a dough. If the mixture looks too dry and it’s not coming together as a dough ball, add little milk (one tablespoon at a time) to make a dough ball.
  5. Place this dough in the freezer for 20 minutes. This will make the dough less sticky and easy to handle.
  6. In the meanwhile, line a baking tray with parchment paper and keep it aside. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  7. Once chilled, place the dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll into a disc (approximately 1/4 cm thick). Cut into round shaped biscuits using a cookie cutter.
  8. Place the biscuits in the baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  9. Bake them in the preheated oven at 180C for 12-15 minutes or till the edges turn golden brown.
  10. Remove from the oven and let the biscuits cool down for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, transfer them on a wire-rack to let them cool completely.
  11. Store in an air-tight container. Enjoy with tea or coffee.

These biscuits will taste great with masala tea or cafe mocha.
