Oats Cake

The second recipe which Minoo demonstrated in the South Arm Community Kitchen is taken from Fresh Choice. Although it is called Oats Cake, it is more like a cookie or granola bar.


The Oats Cake is crispy when it’s fresh from the oven. I noticed that it turns soft the next day for those extras that we took home. These Oats Cake makes a great after school snack.


  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats (we used quick cooking oats)
  • 2/3 cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda (I’ll recommend reduce this by 1/4 teaspoon as the oats cake has a hint of bitterness to it but if you eat it with jam, you will not taste the bitterness)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup cold water

Serves 8 portions


Preheat the oven to 375F.

Combine flour, oats, sugar, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Mix well.

Cut butter into mixture, moisten with water a little at a time.

Gather the dough together into a ball.
Take a chunk of the dough and roll out thin on a floured counter.

Trim rough edges.

Cut into strips. Repeat until all the dough is rolled out.

Bake in a 375F preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Serve hot with jam or peanut butter.

For the third recipe, Minoo prepared a Carrot and Orange Soup.


I had blogged about a similar recipe here, so I wont blog about this Carrot and Orange Soup.
