Here's a great snack you can whip up on a moment's notice!


2 cups certified gluten free oats

2 tsp salt

1/8 tsp baking soda

3T oil

2-4 oz hot water


Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Grind the oatmeal in a food processor. Grind a cup of the processed oatmeal in a coffee grinder. Whisk both together, with salt and baking soda. In a large bowl, whisk oil and 2 oz water and slowly add oatmeal. Add more water if needed for dough to form a ball.

Place parchment paper on cookie sheets, and half of the ball of dough on each sheet. Roll out to approximately 1/8 inch thick, and score with pizza cutter or sharp knife. Bake for approximaely 20 minutes, or until browned. Makes approximately 8 dozen crackers, depending on thickness.

sounds great, although I haven't come across any gluten free oats yet in Australia.

Fun but very salty--next time we'll use 1/2 tsp. (not 2 tsp) salt for 2 cups oats. These are a welcome change. I enjoyed them with pecan butter for breakfast. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

I also found the crackers too salty, I'll try with half the amount first, 1 tsp and see if it needs even less.
Beautiful crispy alternative to wheat crackers, thank you very much for the recipe!

Just made a double batch of these. I cut down on the salt and used half extra virgin coconut oil and half olive oil. Great! Everyone in the house loves them.
Thanks so much-

I'm going to try them for the first time. Can you freeze them?

I agree with others that this was way too salty. I made the next batch with just 1/2 teaspoon of salt and it was perfect. So glad I found this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

I also used 1/2 tsp. salt & they came out perfect. I couldn't resist eating some dough! I cut mine into round crackers. Next time I will double the recipe because this made a small yield (I didn't eat that much dough!) I will also try salting the tops.
