Preparation

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 390 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Blitz the porridge oats in a blender until they are flour like.
  3. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. Combine the soya milk and oil and set it aside – it will curdle a bit, that is fine.
  5. Gradually pour the soya/oil mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until a firm dough ball is formed. If it is too dry add a little more soya milk or if it’s too wet stop adding liquid and add some more flour.
  6. Roll out the dough and use the cookie cutter to cut out bat shapes – or any other shape you wish. I think (can’t quite remember) I got about 18 biscuits.
  7. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes ensuring to keep an eye on them. Cool on a cooling rack.
  8. Melt the chocolate buttons and soya in a heavy bottomed pan and spread on the cooled biscuits. Allow to cool/set before eating.
