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
Sultanas
Chopped apricots
Honey
Cranberries
Chopped dried apple rings

Method

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.

I made sultana, almond and honey ones yesterday and they were great!
