Delicious Chocolate Chip Oatcakes
If you're an oatmeal lover like me, you'll love this oatcake recipe. They make a nice treat when you just want a little something sweet (but not too sweet), or if you're short on time in the morning, grab one on your way out the door for 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.
- 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
- Preheat oven to 350F
- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in the butter until the mixture becomes crumbly.
- 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
- Roll the dough out to about 1/4" to 1/2" thick, or desired thickness. Cut into circles about 3" in diameter
- 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.
