from donna hay’s modern classics book 2; makes about 36, depending on the size of your biscuits.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
125g butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 cup malted milk powder (i used Milo)
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cups raisins

1. preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius. place the sugars, butter and egg in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and creamy. add the milk powde, flour, baking soda, rolled oats and raisins and mix to combine.

2. roll dough into balls and place on baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper. flatten with the back of a fork. bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden. cool on wire racks.


the resulting cookie was crisp at the edges, and slightly chewy in the centre. this recipe is a keeper.

  1. Those Malted Oat and Raisin Biscuits look yummy! When you say “malted milk powder,” is it the kind you mix with milk and/or ice cream to make malted milk shakes? All we have here in the US is Carnation brand.
