Honey Oat Cakes

Oat cakes do not usually contains eggs,  however, I am always looking for recipes that are healthy breakfast options and these fit the bill. A few coffee shops and bakeries here in Nova Scotia make oat cakes and I have changed the recipe to contain honey which cuts down on the amount of refined sugars in the recipe by half, so you can feel good about giving these to your family for breakfast. These are especially handy for your kids to grab on the way out the door in the morning on the way to school. And back to school is almost here!

 

Honey Oat Cakes

Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl:

  • 2 cups large flake oats
  • 1 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda

Cut in:

  • 3/4 cup softened butter

Then add:

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water

Mix by hand until a dough is formed. It will be sticky.

Roll out on a lightly floured surface about 1/4 inch thick and cut into 3 by 2 inch rectangles. If it is too sticky, add a bit more flour.

Bake 350 degrees F for approximately 12-14 minutes. Cool. Makes approximately 16.
