  1. To make the triangle oat biscuits: put the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and oats in a large bowl and rub in the butter until you have crumbly breadcrumbs.
  2. Pour in the milk bit by bit and give it a good mix until you have a soft dough.
  3. Liberally flour a worktop and roll out the dough thinly about 2mm thick using extra flour to stop it sticking. Cut the dough into long 5 cm strips and then into triangles.
  4. Pop a large non-stick frying pan over a medium high heat with no oil or butter in. After about 3 minutes your pan should be hot enough to use. Place about 8 triangles in at a time and cook on each side in your dry frying pan for about 2 minutes or until dark and golden and slightly puffed. Flip over and cook for another 2 – 3 minutes on the other side.
  5. Remove your triangles from the pan with a spatula and leave to cool completely on a cooling rack and get on with your chutney.
  6. To make the rhubarb chutney: Add the butter to a medium saucepan and melt over a medium heat. Add the onions and ginger and cook until soft and sweet.
  7. Add the vinegar, sugar, chilli, rhubarb, salt and pepper, and bring to the boil. Bring to a rolling boil for about 5 minutes.
  8. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until slightly thickened.
  9. Pour into a sterilised jar and allow to cool.
  10. Serve your biscuits with: a wedge of cheese and a dollop of delicious chutney.
