Recipe for malt biscuits?

Can anyone please help with a recipe for malt biscuits? The packets I'm buying from the supermarkets seem so bland nowadays.

Alison has one that google will lead you to - Alison's malty biscuits. I haven't tried myself but a friend says they're excellent. Her recipes are pretty dependable.

You can add about 8 tablespoons of malt for stronger malt flavour. I'm going to make some tomorrow they are so yummy. Let me know how it goes popeye333

I added malt to my self saucing choc pudding turned out delish.

Oh dear! Found the malt at the supermarket. Made Alison Holsts ones, plus another I found on the web, that is mixed together, chilled, rolled out, then cut. Both are very very moorish. going to be the only biscuits I make from now!
Crisp like a ginger nut, but thinner, perfect for dunking.

Care to share your biscuit recipe wheelz?. I love malt flavour in anything. I add 1T malt to my bread too, gives a nice flavour to wholemeal/rye bread/rolls.

I like the idea Nauru I'm going to put some malt in my bran loaf. Thanks
