  • 1 tbsp oil (I use olive - vegetable oil or melted butter would also work)

  • 100ml warm water

  • 100g strong cheddar cheese finely grated

  • 225g medium oatmeal

  • 1 tbsp plain flour


  1. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. Mix the oatmeal and flour.
  3. Stir in the cheese, making sure it gets coated and isn't clumpy.
  4. Drizzle over the oil, then the water and mix with spoon/spatula to yield a firm, slightly sticky dough. Add a little more water if it seems to need it.
  5. Roll out thinly and cut into whatever size/shape you want.
  6. Place on baking tray (greased unless good nonstick) and bake for 10-15 minutes until just starting to turn golden at edges.
  7. Cool on a rack and store in airtight container.

Handy Hint

You may prefer a different oatmeal, I usually use 200g medium + 25g pinhead for added bite.

You can also use exactly the same recipe but without the cheese to make non-cheesy oatcakes.

    These were so easy and my kids loved them, they didn't last until the next day.

    Very simple and tasty alone or with (more) cheese.
