1 C Whole-wheat Flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1⁄2 tsp Baking soda
1⁄4 C quick Oatmeal
1⁄4 C Bran
1⁄2 C dark Brown sugar
1⁄4 C Butter
5 Tbs Milk, or as needed


Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda into a mixing bowl. Add the oatmeal, bran and sugar, and mix well to combine. Add the butter and rub it in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add 4 Tbs milk and stir in well so the mixture forms a soft dough. If the mixture is a little dry, add the remaining 1 Tbs milk. Turn the dough out onto a sheet of plastic wrap and shape it into a log about 25 cm long. Wrap the plastic around the dough and roll it gently back and forward to make a smooth shape. Twist the ends of the plastic together to seal. Chill the dough for about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Unwrap the dough and, using a very sharp knife, cut it across into slices 1 cm thick. Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet and place the dough slices on it. Bake for about 12 mins or until lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely. They can be kept in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
