  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine rolled oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon and baking soda and stir well to combine. In another bowl, whisk remaining wet ingredients.
  3. Drain and coarsely chop soft raisins. Add to dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix to combine.
  4. Wet hands slightly and shape tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on prepared baking trays and press gently to flatten. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Leave biscuits on trays to cool completely before serving.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
