Whole food monkey fruit in its raw state

Oat-spelled biscuits (without egg)

When I was a student, I discovered delicious wholesome oat-spelled biscuits with honey at the Oldenburg farmers' market. Due to my tight budget as a student, one day I just wrote down the ingredients and tried baking the biscuits. After a few baking experiments in collaboration with Melanie, our oat-spelled biscuit recipe was finally created. Unlike many other cookie recipes, the cookies are baked without an egg.

The original oat-spelled biscuits from the farmers' market are available in two versions: with and without raisins. Our recipe can also be modified in the same way. For example, we have mixed in various dried fruits such as raisins, goji berries and chopped dates or sprinkled sunflower seeds and finely chopped almonds over the pre-formed biscuits. There are (almost) no limits to your imagination. My favorite thing is the oat and spelled biscuits sprinkled with sunflower seeds. We have also experimented with the sweetness and find 80 g honey to be the best. If you like cookies a little sweeter, you can use 100 g honey.

The oat-spelled biscuits are the perfect snack for on the go. Because they keep fresh for a long time and are quick and easy to prepare. That's why we almost always have these cookies with us when we travel. Since the oat and spelled biscuits crumble a bit, it makes sense to shape them so small that they have a bite or two in your mouth. 😉

Since we don't have a flaker, we use coarsely ground oats for our biscuits. We can very well imagine that the biscuits with freshly flaked oats also taste very good. (Update July 2017: We now have a flake crusher * and the cookies also work great with oat flakes.)

Oat-spelled biscuits (without egg)


  • 100g wholemeal spelled flour
  • 200g oats (coarsely ground), alternatively oat flakes
  • 1 teaspoon of tartar baking powder
  • 1 pinch of ground vanilla pod
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon
  • 100g butter
  • 80g honey
  • a few chopped dried fruits, sunflower seeds, nuts or almonds


  1. In a large bowl, mix wholemeal spelled flour, ground oats (or oat flakes), baking powder, vanilla and cinnamon. (Optional: also mix in finely chopped dried fruits, sunflower seeds, nuts or almonds)

  2. In a small saucepan, carefully heat the butter and honey and let them melt, but do not boil.
  3. Add the honey and butter mixture to the other ingredients in the bowl and stir into a batter with a large spoon.
  4. Place small heaps on baking paper with a teaspoon and shape into round biscuits.
  5. Bake at 200 ° C top / bottom heat for about 12 minutes until golden brown. It is better to check it more often, as the biscuits can suddenly turn brown very quickly. At first they are a little soft. After cooling, they become more solid.
