Oatcake recipe

I'm crazy about these. No wheat, no sugar, low GI. Great with anything you would normally eat on a biscuit.


250g oats
Pinch of salt
¼ t bicarb
1T butter, melted
75-200ml hot water from a recently boiled kettle
1 baking sheet
8cm biscuit cutter (round)

Preheat stove to 200˚C
Put the oats in a bowl add salt and bicarb.
Make a well, pour in the butter and stirring with a wooden spoon, mix with enough water, until a stiff dough. (Oats may need as much as 200 mls. Oatmeal may need less.)

Knead the dough for a while to make it come smoothly together. Roll out thinly. Cut into rounds and bake on an un-greased baking sheet for 12 – 15 minutes, or until the oatcakes are turning golden brown and the oatcakes themselves are firm. Remove to cool on a wire rack.

Makes 15 - 20
