Recipe type: Snack, Dessert
Cuisine: Scottish
Serves: 7-8
  • 1¼ cups (180 grams) Scottish oatmeal (I used Bob's Red Mill brand), plus 1 -2 tablespoons extra for rolling out dough
  • ½ cup (64 grams) whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup coconut sugar or powered (10X) sugar (see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 15 pecan halves (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the oatmeal, whole wheat flour, coconut sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Stir in the butter and mix until well combined. Add the water and mix until the dough comes together. (If the dough seems dry and is not coming together add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time.)
  3. Sprinkle a surface with some of the extra oatmeal and roll out the dough to a thickness of ¼ inch. Using a 2½ inch round cookie cutter, stamp out 15 oatcakes and place on the baking sheet. Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 30 minutes.
  4. While oatcakes are baking make the glaze. Process the coconut sugar to a fine powder in a blender or food processor. (If using powdered sugar skip this step.) Transfer to a small bowl and add the almond milk and maple syrup. Stir well.
  5. Once the oatcakes are cool, spoon, or pipe, some of the glaze onto each oatcake. Garnish with pecan halves.
  6. Makes 15 oatcakes.
If you use powdered sugar instead of coconut sugar the glaze will be lighter in color.
