Cheesy Oatcakes for your Picnic Basket
Planning a picnic soon? Or need something to nibble while working away at the desk? Try these savoury oatcakes with cheese. They're soft and slightly chewy, quite filling and very easy to make. The recipe is adapted from a Finnish magazine. I used an Emmenthaler-type cheese, but good old Cheddar or Monterey Jack would work just as well.
Makes about 2 dozens
100 g old-fashioned oats
135 g plain/all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
75 g cheese, grated
250 ml / 1 cup milk
40 g butter, melted
0.5 tsp salt
Mix oats, flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Add the grated cheese, milk, melted butter and stir, until everything is combined. The batter with be rather soft.
Take spoonfuls of the batter and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake in a preheated 225 C/450 F oven for about 15 minutes, until the cookies are golden.
Transfer onto a wire rack to cool.
