If you're an oatmeal lover like me, you'll love this oatcake recipe. They make a good snack when you want something a little sweet, or grab one on your way out the door for a quick breakfast.

These oatcakes are a variation of traditional Scottish oatcakes, but they are quite a bit sweeter than their counterparts. I have seen oatcakes similar to these sold in coffee shops like Second Cup in eastern Canada.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: About 12 cakes


  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Rolled oats, I lightly grind about 1 cup of oats to make a chewier texture
  • 1 cup Brown sugar
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup Cold water
  • 1 cup Chocolate chips, I sometimes use chocolate chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in the butter until the mixture becomes crumbly.
  3. Gradually pour in the water while mixing with a fork until a ball begins to form and dough holds together pretty well. Add chocolate chips and mix to combine
  4. Roll the dough out to about 1/4" to 1/2" thick, or desired thickness. Cut into circles about 3" in diameter
  5. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350F for about 15-20 minutes or until they are lightly golden and still a bit soft. They will harden up a bit once they cool, so do not bake them too long. Transfer to a cooling rack after about 15 minutes or when they are firm enough to handle.

      Thank you so much for posting this - especially the nutritional information :)! I had been looking around my campus coffee shop website (east coast school) for info on these forever with no luck.
