Dried Fruit Oatcakes
old fashioned rolled oats, 2 cups
ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp
baking soda, 1/2 tsp
salt, 1/8 tsp
melted vegetable spread, 2 tbsp
honey, 1 tbsp
favorite dried fruit, 3 tbsp
Preheat oven 400 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine oats, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the center and add the veggie spread and honey. combine with a rubber spatula until all oats are coated. Mix in fruit. Heat 1 cup of water in a teakettle or saucepan until very hot but not boiling. Add water 2 tbsp at a time to oat mixture, stirring after each addition with a rubber spatula, until oats become wet and sticky. You will not need to use all the water. With wet hands, mix oat dough a final time. Dough will be sticky and loose.
Scoop and drop dough onto greased baking sheet making two-inch rounds, flat oatcakes.
Bake oatcakes until edges turn golden brown and centers are firm and not sticky, about 15 minutes (depending on oven). The oatcakes will crisp while cooling.
