These are more savoury than sweet digestives and are great with cheese, or crumbled over yoghurt and honey.


  • Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas 5/fan 180°C
  • 250g Wholemeal Spelt
  • 250g Oatmeal
  • 2 dessert spoons of Honey
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 10g Salt
  • 1 heaped tsp Ground Ginger
  • 140ml Sunflower Oil
  • A little Milk to milk


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together to form a dough but add the milk last, and just a little bit at a time until you have a slightly sticky consistency.
  2. Wrap the dough in cling film, and place into the fridge for 1 hour. Don't leave it in the fridge for too much longer or it will be difficult to roll out.
  3. Unwarp the dough and roll out carefully between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper until it is about 8mm thick.
  4. Use a cutter to cut small 6cm rounds.
  5. Bake in the oven on 180 degrees centigrade/Gas Mark 4 for 10-12 minutes or until the edges just start to brown.
  6. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a rack
