My Hob Nobs

5/5 - (1 vote)

Hob Nob biscuits are actually a proprietary brand, but I have made a similar type of biscuit, just trying out a basic biscuit recipe with some rolled oats in it.

They have turned out rather well, with a lovely sweet aroma, as they cooked. They have a nice, brittle crunch to then, and have just a taste of golden syrup.  

They are also very easy to make, so give it a try.

  • 140 g Self-raising flour( I used plain flour and sifted it with two teaspoons of baking powder
  • 110 g rolled oats
  • 140 g of softened butter
  • 140 g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp golden syrup
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 150c/130c fan/Gas Mark 2
  2. Cream the butter with the sugar
  3. add bicarbonate of soda, golden treacle and milk, mix together
  4. add the flour and rolled oats and mix together
  5. when all is mixed together(you may want to use your hands to pull the mixture into a ball
  6. divide the mixture into about 20 pieces, and roll into a ball. (or roll the mixture into a sausage and cut into 20 pieces)
  7. place each ball onto a baking sheet, about 10 per sheet
  8. press down the ball to flatten a little
  9. place the trays into the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown
  10. The biscuits will spread a little as they cook and the tops will start to crack slightly, giving a nice rustic look.
  11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a couple of minutes, on the baking trays, before transferring to a cooling rack.
