I’m not sure making your own oatcakes is that much cheaper than buying them.  I used organic oatmeal and seeds and stuff that I already had. Whole recipe cost about 70p and made about as many oatcakes as you’d buy in a regular sized box, which would cost you about (quick check on Asda website) .. 80p.  Add in the cost of what you spent cooking them and your TIME (depending on how expensive you think you are) and you’re either breaking even or it’s ridiculously costly.  They taste nice though and who doesn’t like saying ‘I made these!’?

  • 250g oatmeal
  • 3/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • Seeds e.g. sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds (sprinkle of each)
  • 25g vegan margarine
  • 150ml boiling water
  1. Mix all ingredients together and stir well; the boiling water melts the margarine into the other ingredients
  2. Form into a dough and roll out
  3. Cut into circles with a cookie cutter and place on oiled/greased baking tray
  4. Bake at 180°C for about 10 minutes

I will ask friends if these are Gluten-Free because I don’t know
