    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a baking tray.
    2. Place the oats into a liquidiser or a food processor and pulse several times to grind them into coarse flour. Stir the oat flour together with wholemeal flour, salt, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Pour in the water and olive oil and mix to form a soft dough. Place the dough onto the prepared baking tray and roll out 3mm thick. Using a knife, partially slice through the dough in desired shapes.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until just barely brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Watch carefully, as they burn easily. Allow to cool completely on baking tray before breaking along score lines into individual crackers.

    Ingredient Note

    The cinnamon can easily be replaced with many different seasonings to make different flavours. Why not try garlic, Parmesan, salt or garlic and pepper.

    tasty, quick and cheap. managed to roll the dough out and use a cutter to make the biscuits before cooking, rather than as suggested in recipe.  -  12 Oct 2012


    These are very tasty. I changed the ingredients, omitted sugar & cinnamon and used ginger & rosemary instead as I wanted something savoury. I only used 4tbs oil instead of 5 otherwise it would have been too wet and I also rolled out on work surface and used a cutter. Definitely one I will make again.  -  13 Aug 2013


    - i followed this recipe to the letter... its very sweet and so doesnt taste like a savoury biscuit that is suitable for cheese. the cinnamon is overpowering... use less and try the other suggestions like rosemary for example..... i found that 4 tablespoons of olive oil gave a very wet dough so try using 3.5 tablespoons. and post a review so everyone knows how you got on. im going to use less sugar, less rosemary and olive oil next time.. trial and error is what cooking's all about. happy cooking  -  09 Dec 2012
