With Christmas parties and all the celebrations you are feeling tired and bloated. Why not enjoy something light over a nice hot drink? Try my slightly ‘healthier’ digestive biscuits. They are plain, satisfying and perfect for those days when you want a treat that’s not too sweet.

  • 50g bran flakes
  • 50g traditional rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp. psyllium husk
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 100g wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g unsalted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a large tray with baking paper.
  2. In a mix master/kitchen wiz, blitz bran flakes to a breadcrumb consistency. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Blitz oats to a fine powder and add to the bowl containing the bran flakes.
  4. Add the psyllium husk, sugar, wholemeal flour, baking powder and salt.
  5. Add the vanilla and butter and mix until the mixture is crumbly.
  6. Pour in the milk and combine to form a soft dough.
  7. Wrap in cling wrap and allow to firm in the fridge for approximately 20 minutes.
  8. Flour a clean surface and a rolling pin. Roll the dough out to the thickness of a regular biscuit, around 2.5-3mm thick. (Make sure to consistently flour your rolling pin, as the mixture will be very crumbly).
  9. Cut out circles using a cookie cutter, floured to each cut out. Transfer biscuits onto tray.
  10. Decorate with a pattern of your choice or press a fork in the centre of each biscuit.
  11. Cook for approximately 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden.
  12. Allow biscuits to cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
