Wholemeal Nestum Biscuits

What I used:

100g butter
100 ml olive oil
130g caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

200g plain flour
90g wholemeal flour
80g nestum
1 teaspoon baking powder

What I did:

1. Put all the dry ingredients B in a bowl and whisk for a few seconds to mix well.

2. Cream all the ingredients A for 2 to 3 minutes.

3. Add in the dry ingredients and mix into a dough.

4. Roll out into balls and place them onto baking tray and press lightly with a fork to flatten.

5. Bake in pre-heated oven at 140 degrees C for 30 to 40 minutes or till golden brown.

6. Cool and store in air-tight containers.


  1. with olive oil?
    That's interesting.

    Did the cookies smell of olive oil or butter when baked?

  2. Hi Wendy,
    There's no smell of olive oil. The nestum and the vanilla essence overcame it.
