  • 85ml of olive oil
  • 15ml of hot water
  • Pinch of salt

Prep time: 20 mins Cook time: 25 mins

Start by preheating the oven to 180°C, 160°C fan, gas mark 4 and lining a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

In a large bowl, add the oats, ground oats, oil, water and salt and combine with a fork until you have a dough-like texture. If it is too crumbly, add some more water. Leave to one side for 15 minutes which will allow the oats to absorb the liquid.

Dust a clean worktop with some suitable flour and roll out the dough until it is quite thin, around 3mm thick.

Use a round cutter to cut out the oatcakes and place them onto the lined baking tray. Place the tray in the pre-heated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until they are golden.

Serve the oatcakes with your choice of accompaniment; cheese, pate, guacamole, houmous etc. 

Store the oatcakes in a sealed container at room temperature.
