Scottish Oatcakes

Savory oatcakes (or bannocks) are quintessentially Scottish.
Perfect with some hearty cheese, smoked salmon, goats cheese & dill or chutney.


225g Scottish oatmeal
60g wholewheat flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
60g butter or olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
60-80ml hot water
Pre-heat the oven to 190C.
Mix everythign together in a bowl except the water.
It should have the consistency of large bread crumbs.
Start adding the water until you have a thick dough.
The amount of water varies; depending on the oats.
Sprinkle some flour on a bench and roll out the dough to1/2cm thickness.
Use an upturned whisky glass to cut rounds.
Bake for appprox. 20-30mins. or until slightly golden brown.
I think these are nice with bananas or with honey, or almond butter :)
