This is the best biscuit recipe I’ve ever baked. I prepared them yesterday to take them to my daughter today (she studies 100km from home). I decided to prepare them to her because she likes very much cereals and this recipe seemed to put together a lot of good flavors and cereals.
It is also an easy recipe that doesn’t request any special expertise. I found it in a great Italian blog, Trattoria da Martina, from where I had already tried other recipes with success, such as the Light Baked Salmon. The only thing I changed is that I used almonds instead of hazelnuts, just because there were no hazelnuts in my market that day.
You should use the mixer for a few seconds, just to lightly grind the rolled oats. Grossly mince the almonds and raisins. Mix it all and lei it rest for half an hour in the fridge before enlarging and cutting the dough.
