Simplicious Oatcakes

Oat cakes 1This 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.

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

    Could you just use an Instant Hot Oat cereal such as Ready Brek instead of blitzing the oats into a flour like consistency seeing it’s the same thing?

    I guess you could also use a bit of sweetener such as sucralose instead if you’re not keen on the sugar content.

    I see no reason why not Marcie – give it a try and let us know if it works!

    I tried this using Ready Brek and Splenda and it worked a treat. I also added some raisins and it was a perfect pre-run and post-run snack as you get all the extra added vitamins and minerals in the cereal itself along with the protein from the eggs for recovery. I had to add a bit of milk though to get the consitency right. I would definitely suggest people give this one a go. They’re sort of like scones when baked. Really nice.
