School tour Oatcakes

As part of our school tour day programme the children are taught to make traditional oat cakes the original energy bar here is how we do it 


  • 85 g butter
  • 110 g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 225 g  oats
  • cold water, to bind dough


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease a baking tray or line with baking parchment.
  2. In a large bowl rub the margarine into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the salt, baking powder and then the oats. Add enough cold water to bind the dough, but do not add so much as to make it sticky.
  3. Turn the oatcake dough out onto a floured surface and roll out. Cut into discs and place on the prepared baking tray
  4. Bake them or fry on hot pan on open fire until firm
