The kind of digestives I can’t stop eating are the sugary biscuits that have oatmeal in them—and chocolate outside. But I know that super-sweet chocolate-coated digestives aren’t what was originally intended by a lightly sweetened wholemeal biscuit meant to give you a little extra fiber at the end of a meal. These biscuits are a more traditional digestive, mildly sweet, wholegrain. They’re actually delicious, plain, or spread with Strawberry Jam, Lemon Curd, or even peanut butter. Use the coarsest stoneground flour you can get. If you use traditional rolled oats, you’ll get a slightly chewier cookie; quick-cooking oat flakes will disappear more into the dough. Both are good. If you happen to melt a cup of some semisweet chocolate chips and dip each finished cookie in it, I can’t stop you.
