Simple Honest Oatcakes
Even the best shop bought oatcakes fall short compared with home-made and these must be the easiest recipe on the blog (now that's saying something).
The truth is you can choose the best quality steel cut gluten-free oats, your favourite and most flavoursome olive oil, (or grass fed butter) and the very best sea salt. Here we (I say we b/c my Izzy made this batch), used salt, from the salt marshes of Ile de Ré ( a some-time summer haunt, with the most stunning salt marshes, set just behind the coastal cycle paths. On an aside, if you have never been to Ile de Ré I cannot recommend it enough... it is beautiful.
Back to this lovely snack... Oats are packed with fibre, as you likely know, and one of the very few foods (you can count on one hand), able to make a specific health claim; that is that they contain betaglucans, which lower LDL cholesterol. And of course they make a tasty gluten free alternative to breads, perfect with soup, with hummus, with pesto and avocado.
