- Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix together the flours, salt and bicarbonate of soda.
- Make a well in the centre, add the honey, buttermilk and milk, then stir until incorporated. Use your hands to bring it all together to form a smooth, wet dough.
- With lightly floured hands, shape into 12 rolls and put on a greased baking sheet, so the rolls are almost touching. Brush each with a little milk, scatter with a few rolled oats, then bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden brown.
- Cool on a wire rack, then wrap in waxed paper or foil to take with you. Don’t forget to pack butter!
