Scottish Oat Cakes [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


20 oat cakes

Cook Time



  • 2 cups of gluten-free oats
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1/3 cup of light olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of hot water
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350℉ and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add in the oats, ground oats, oil, water, salt, and combine until a dough like texture forms. If it’s too crumbly, add more water. Set aside for 15 minutes to allow the oats to absorb the water.
  3. Dust a clean worktop with flour and roll out the dough until around one tenth of an inch thick.
  4. Using a round cookie cutter, cut out the oatcakes and place them onto the lined baking tray.
  5. Once all of the oat cakes are ready, pop them into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden in color.

This recipe did not work for me for a number of reasons. Be sure to check out other oatcake recipes before you use this one.
