We like "quick oats" rather than "rolled oats" because they are a little finer. We think they make the biscuits chewier.

You may prefer the look of big rolled oats in your biscuits - go for it!


  1. Another reason for preferring Quick Oats to Rolled Oats is that the edges are cut which I believe lets the moisture content of the mix get right in to the grain. Rolled Oats tend to have the sealed-as-nature-intended edges.

  2. I would love to try these -- but I'm in the US. If an Australian tablespoon is 20 ml., how big is an Australian measuring cup? In the US, 1 cup is 16 (15 ml.) tablespoons. Our cup is 8 fl. oz., by volume, our pint 16 fl. oz., our quart 32 fl. oz.
    If you use the Imperial measuring system, your cup is (I think) 10 oz, pint=20 oz, quart 40 oz. Sorry to complicate things -- but the recipe looks so good!

  3. I was going to say that a cup is a cup, but Wikipedia tells me that a US cup is not the same as an Australian one. So, here I've used Tupperware metric cups - one cup is 250ml. That converts to a tad over 8 oz, nowhere near 10 oz.

    I'm pretty sure you will have the same cups (particularly if we're looking at Tupperware), but I couldn't help noticing that mine say METRIC. Could you be a love and investigate what a US Tupperware cup is?

    Thanks for the comments! Good luck finding proper golden syrup.
    See ya

  4. Going to try this tomorrow for Anzac day, but you know, to get things like honey and golden syrup off spoons easily, Nigella oils the spoon. Spose you could 'oil' it with the butter.

  5. Hi Jessica,
    That might work - and a drop of oil wouldn't spoil it anyway. Thanks!
