Oats is awonderfully healthy staple with a low glycemic load and a capacity for clearing out bad fat such as cholesterol.
It is also tasty and warming so in winter you can never have enough and I try to include it regularly in my menus.
These oatcakes are crumblier than their shop version and they go brilliantly with cheese or nut spreads for a healthy snack.
Oatmeal 1 cup ( I have not turned to US metrics but this just needs quick and rough measures so a tea-cup will do for ease !)
Oatbran 1/2 cup
Wheatgerm 1/2 cup
Salt one pinch
Bicarbonate of soda 1 tsp
Pinch of smoked paprika or chilli powder
Olive oil 3 tbsp
Rice flour 1 tbsp
A little cold water
Mix all the ingredients then add just enough water to help the bonding and make a long log that you will wrap in cling film and put 1 hour in the cold.
Warm your oven to 180 degrees Celsius then cut medium thick slices off your log with the sharpest of knives.
Lay those on baking paper and bake for 15 to 20 min.
Sorry for the lack of pictures but my computer is in repair so please bear with me for awhile…
