Sometimes I buy from the supermarket oatcakes for having snacks at home. I like them because they are not sweet and I think they are “healthy”. But then you check the ingredients list and realized that there are things you wouldnt think…

Anyway, I decided to give it a go and searched for some recipes. I decided for this recipe as it showed some pictures although I used just oats and plenty more water than a couple of tablespoons 🙂


  • 200gr oats
  • 25g butter melted
  • 1tsp salt
  • 100-200ml boiling water


  • Preheat oven at 175C
  • In a bowl, mix the oats and butter.
  • Then add a couple of tsp of hot water at each time until you can form a ball. Knead inside the ball. It doesnt have to be sticky! so dont put too much water.
  • In a work surface, sprinkle a bit of flour and in a rolling pin. Carefully flat the dough with the pin. I tried to reach 0.5 thickness. The sides will crack but dont worry.
  • Use a cookie cutter. I used 8.5cm diameter cutter. Quite big cookie but I liked that way. Likely you will be able to cut one or two cookies at each time. Make a ball again with the leftovers, add water if needed, and repeat the process. Flat with the pin, cut a cookie, recover the leftovers.
  • I put a big of sunflower oil in the try, then move the cookies.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. Turn them at least once if you can.

And this is the result!

To be honest, the taste was stronger than the supermarket ones. It tastes (obviously) a lot to oats!

I thought 200g of oats would make a lot of oatcakes but just managed 5 big ones and 2 small pieces.

Happy with the result, and glad to learn something new!
