Weetbix Biccies

These Weetbix Biccies came about after creating my Marshmallow Weetbix Slice that I posted last night. I am always looking for more lunchbox treats and this is one of them. The kiddies adore these biscuits. 

It is such an easy recipe it is now a go to recipe each week. Get the children involved with this one. It is almost foolproof. I wont actually say it is foolproof as there is always one person!

You can add different flavours if you wish. A little cocoa powder works well or choc chips. I often add a little flaxseed meal and chia seeds if I want to sneak in some extra goodies. I do this with a  lot of my baking recipes. Cinnamon would be lovely too.

    Thanks so much Peta, we cook these weekly now for our little guy. I do tend to throw some extra seeds in (sunflower, pepita, chia) as he gobbles them up so I figure its just another way to fill him with goodness.

    Thanks again Peta, one of the easiest biscuits to make, I just love the throw everything in the bowl and mix recipes, and these are very tasty and enjoyed by young and old! Will try with chia seeds and choc chips next time as others suggested!

    I made these for the first time today and was so impressed! I’m not a big fan of weetbix slice but these biccies are amazing. I will definitely be making these for lunch boxes in the future. Thanks Peta!
