Fruity Oatcakes By: Marilynda M.
I have a teenage son with CF who has little interest in food. I look for foods that are "portable" for him and don't require effort to prepare. These oatcakes are very healthy and he usually eats them without a fuss.
- 4 c old-fashioned oats
- 2 c flour, any kind
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon, optional and to taste
- 1 1/2 c raisins or other dried fruit
- 1 1/4 c boiling water
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 stick butter, softened (not margarine)
- 3/4 c unsweetened applesauce or vegetable/canola oil
- Add All Ingredients
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
Grease 2 baking sheets.
In large bowl mix oats, flour, sugar and cinnamon. Add dried fruit to coat well.
Mix baking soda into boiling water and let sit.
Add butter and applesauce or oil to dry mixture using a spatula. It should be very stiff.
Now pour the soda water into the dough. Continue to mix well.
Using your hand, shape dough into 4" round and 3/4" high oatcakes on baking trays, (makes approximately 13-15).
Gently press them with your hands to ensure they stay together after baking.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned and cool on wire rack.
You can stick them in a sandwich baggie or wrap them in saran wrap for an easy breakfast or lunch with a piece of fruit.
