Savoury Oat Cakes


There are many types of oats such as Oats, Groats, Pinhead Oatmeal, Oat Bran, Jumbo Oats, Superfast Oats, Oatmeal and Organic Oats.They have a high fiber content, and they help remove cholesterol from the digestive system. High cholesterol levels correlate with the build up of plaques in blood vessel walls. If these plaques become damaged or grow too large, they can rupture, blocking a blood vessel and causing a heart attack, stroke, or blood clots elsewhere in the body. Lowering high cholesterol levels can therefore significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. 

Oats are an excellent source of manganese and molybdenum. They are also a very good source of phosphorus as well as a good source of copper, biotin, vitamin B1, magnesium, dietary fiber, chromium, zinc, and protein.
Mornflake is a company that sell a range of Oat based products, the range consists of different types of oats, Oatbran cereals, Muesli, porridge pots, cereal pots , oat bran and oat granola. I was sent a lovely hamper with some Mornflake products to try.

We have enjoyed the breakfast pots and I have also been baking with the oats. I found that Oats are very versatile and they are also great for adding to savoury dishes too. I created these spicy oatcakes for lunch and they were simply delicious.
