Homemade oatcakes

Here is a very simple recipe for oatcakes.  Oatcakes are a staple in my cupboard but I couldn't find any that don't have palm oil in them.  If you're avoiding flour and are not eating bread, then oatcakes are a must! 

They are delicious and great to have plain with a cup of tea.

140g ground oats
140g whole oats
75ml olive oil
Pinch or two of salt
Enough boiling water to bring it all together.

Grind up 140g of oats in the food processor and tip into a bowl with 140g of whole oats. 
Make a well in the middle and add the olive oil. 
Stir with a wooden spoon. 
Keep adding boiling water from the kettle until the dough comes together in a ball. 
Use your hands to get it all together. 

You don't want it to be too dry or too sticky. 
If it's too sticky just add some more oats.

Roll out on a lightly floured surface as thin as you can get it. Cut into the shapes you want and bake for 20 mins at 180 degrees. Turn after 20 minutes and bake for a further 10 until lightly golden.

Can be stored on an airtight container for a week or so.
