Author Camilla Hawkins


  • 100 g / 4oz Butter softened or margarine
  • 100 g / 4oz Caster sugar
  • 100 g / 4oz Self raising flour
  • 25 g / 1 oz Cocoa powder preferably Bournville
  • 20 Chocolate chips/pieces optional
  • Plate of porridge oats for coating


  • Pre-heat the oven to 175°C.
  • Grease 2 baking sheets.
  • Cream the butter/margarine and sugar together with an electric whisk until pale.
  • Using a wooden spoon, mix in the sifted flour and cocoa until they form a paste.
  • Shape into small walnut sized balls (should make 15 - 20). I use a couple of teaspoons but you can just use your hands if you wish.
  • Roll the balls in the plate of oats to coat.
  • Place the balls on the baking sheets and press down with a fork on each one.
  • Decorate with a chocolate chip if wished.
  • Put in the oven and bake for 14 - 15 minutes.
  • When ready leave for a minute and then transfer the biscuits with a palette knife to a wire rack.
