Salicylate-Free Wholemeal Digestive Biscuits!


1. 100g organic wholemeal flour
*Alternatively, you could mix 80g organic wholemeal flour with 20g organic all-purpose flour.
2. 1 tablespoon of baking powder
3. 40gm of light, brown sugar
4. 120gm of salted butter.
5. 2 to 3 tablespoons of milk
(I did not add oats to the biscuits this round. If you prefer to add oats to them, add 100gm of fine, grounded oats.)


1. Melt the butter.

2. Mix the flour, baking powder, and brown sugar into a large bowl.

3. Add the melted butter into the dry ingredients and mix until crumbly.

4. Add the milk until a smooth dough is formed.

5. Wrap the dough in cling wrap and store it in the fridge for about 1/2 hour.

6. Preheat the oven to 180C.

7. Remove the dough from the cling wrap and roll it into a long cylinder shape. You can cut small circle shapes 0.4cm in thickness. Alternatively, you can scoop out a tablespoon size of dough and flatten it with the back of a spatula.

8. Bake for about 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

9. Lay aside to cool.

10. Store in airtight containers. I kept mine in the fridge.

Bon appétit!

Waiting for oven to be ready.

Fresh out of the oven!

Ready to be kept in the fridge!


  1. YUMMMmmmm! Eat one or two for me please! :)

    1. Hehehe! Will do! You eat the berries for me! ;)

  2. Hmmm...those would be good smothered in chocolate! :)

    1. The devil's food? Hohoho! YUM-YUM!

    2. I once spent a month living in London and ate chocolate-covered digestives non-stop. Got really fat too. Every time I hear the word digestive my mouth waters and I think of those.

  3.'ve turned me to trying Bok Choy. Is it normal for the white part to have little black dots on it or does that mean it's gone bad? Thanks!

    1. Try to buy the veggie with smooth, white stems. Cut the black dots out if there are any.

    2. Thanks! There were tiny little ones all over the white parts. I threw them out as I seem so sensitive to mold etc. Will try again another day!
