A delicious alternative to the classic Chocolate Chip Cookie, using smashed Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate tablet instead of chocolate chips.  This recipe also includes healthy oats - which give it a nice crisp texture.  We like this recipe because it is not too sweet, but nicely balanced. If you prefer a biscuit that is even less sweet, use a smashed dark chocolate tablet, instead.

    1. Set the oven on 180 degrees celcius (or 160 degrees celcius, if a fan oven).
    2. Cream butter and sugar in a bowl, until light and fluffy.
    3. Add the egg and vanilla. Mix together.
    4. Add the oats. Mix.
    5. Sift the flour and baking powder together and then add it to the butter mixture. Combine.
    6. Stir in the salted caramel chocolate pieces.
    7. Put dessertspoonfuls of biscuit mixture on greased baking sheets. Allow for spreading. Flatten the biscuits, lightly, with a fork.
    8. Bake for 13 - 15 minutes, until risen and golden, but not brown.
    9. Briefly cool the biscuits on the baking tray, before transferring them to a wire rack to cool, further.
    10. The biscuits will keep for up to a week, in an air tight container. Makes about 25 biscuits.
