I thought I’d shake it up this week with a lunch recipe…
- 150g oats
- 75g plain flour
- 50g butter
- 1/2 tsp. Bicarbonate of soda
- 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 2 tsp. Marmite
- 50ml hot water
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line a baking try with baking paper and pop to the side.
- Blitz 75g of oats in a food processor (or a nutribullet works too!) until they have the texture of coarse flour.
- Put the 75g ground oats, and remaining oats in a bowl. Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt and combine.
- Add the 50g butter to the bowl and rub in until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Pop to the side.
- Place 2 tsp. Marmite into a measuring cup/jug, and make up to 60ml with hot water. Stir well until the Marmite has dissolved.
- Pour the Marmite liquid into the flour and oats mixture and stir until it forms a dough.
- Roll out the dough to a few millimetres thick, and using a cookie cutter (or improvise – I used the Marmite jar lid) cut out your oatcakes. Re-roll the leftover dough, and continue to cut out your oatcakes until all of the dough is used.
- Bake in the centre of the oven for 20-25 minutes, until starting to turn brown around the edges.
- Let cool, and store in an airtight container for the week ahead.
Ta da! A quick and easy recipe for lunches for the week ahead.
As mentioned, I had mine with cottage cheese and some cucumber sticks, but they’d taste yummy with soft cheese or tuna mayo, or you could even serve them as a side for soup! The weather is getting colder after all.
What’s your favourite lunch for the working week?
