Bran Butter Biscuits | Egg Free

The Women’s Weekly cookbooks graced our home in the 80’s and 90’s (last century) and some of them are still really good. I do regret handing a lot of them on to friends and family over the years, but I still have a couple. The Biscuit one is good for a few eggless biscuits, something hard to find these days.

These are Australian style biscuits, not the (strange?) US version of biscuits.

I made these Bran Butter Biscuits because one of the young ones in my life loved oat biscuits when he was really young, and these are close enough for him. They are buttery, but with so little moisture they can be a little dry. Best snacked alongside a cuppa tea with a friend and some good gossip stories. You will eat more than you anticipate – make a double batch if necessary. I have used oat bran in this recipe but you can just as well use wheat bran.

I make these in the food processor. If you prefer to make by hand, use the usual method – sift the flour, salt and baking powder, add bran and sugar and rub in butter. Add water till the dough comes together. Then continue as per the recipe.

You can see in the photo that I let the second batch bake a little longer than the first. It is nice to have the extra colour on the biscuits.

Wholemeal Bran Biscuits | Egg Free

This is a great way to get your daily intake of bran! They say we need at least 2 Tblspn of bran each day along with other forms of fibre, to keep us, uhuum, regular. Rather than mix bran with our cereal for breakfasts, this is a more palatable way of getting our allowance. Three of these crispy crunchy biscuits will provide what you need. Eat plain, or with some butter, honey or other spreads, with cheese, or with a large cuppa.

Biscuits like this normally include eggs. As you know I do not use eggs in my cooking. In this recipe we have replaced them with a mixture of chickpea flour, cashew powder, baking soda and water. It also makes the bickies more flavoursome!
