Date And Walnut Oat Biscuits

Date and walnut oat biscuits

Lockdown has really got us in the kitchen. I don’t think I’ve baked so much in all my life than I have in the last few weeks!

From breads to koeksiesters to biscuits, I’ve made my fair share.

This week I decided to make use of the big bag of dates in the pantry and decided to make some yummy biscuits for us to snack on during the day. I am obsessed with dates and absolutely love the combination of dates and nuts.  Dates are a sweet treat and really satisfies that sweet or chocolate craving!

I thought  I would share this quick and easy recipe which I bookmarked ages ago and finally had the chance to try out.
