Simple and delicious Oatcakes

This simple recipe is easy and makes a great healthy snack, breakfast on the go or post-workout treat!

Basic Ingredients

200 grams porridge oats
50 grams of sugar (any type will work/use less if you prefer)
3 whole eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon of baking powder



Optional extras Personalise your oatcakes by adding any of the following
Chopped nuts
Chocolate chips
Chopped apricots
Chopped dried apple rings


Put the porridge oats into a blender and whizz them up into a rough flour. Add the sugar, the eggs, vanilla essence and the baking powder and blend again until you have a batter-like consistency.

Add your choice of optional extra ingredients and by hand, stir them into your mixture.

Spoon the mixture out onto a greaseproof paper covered baking tray using a table spoon allowing for the mixture to spread slightly. You should get 9-12 portions per batch of mixture.

Place in a pre-heated oven set to 200 degrees and bake for 10-12 minutes and then leave to cool on a cooling rack before eating.
