Wild about oats

| 1

Oatcakes are wheat free and a great nutritious lunch or snack. Pattersons do a great variety of oatcakes. I tried their rough oatcakes, which are made from oatmeal, olive oil and salt. Lovely and crunchy with a good texture and filling too. Patterson’s wheat-free recipe is low in saturated fats (less than 3%) because they contain olive oil. They are high in fibre too, wholegrain, suitable for vegetarians, and 54kcal per oatcake. I’m a true believer in oats being a superfood and one of the healthiest grains. They contain protein, iron, zinc, and magnesium, which provide the body with energy and oats can lower your cholesterol too! Be adventurous with your toppings on the oatcakes, try hummus with cucumber, mozzarella with tomatoes and basil, simply put on some peanut butter. Oatcakes are great for a nutritious and delicious snack, or as part of your lunch. Enjoy!
