Blueberry Hazelnut Oatcakes (makes 12)
Blueberry Hazelnut Oatcakes
Served with a dollop of jam these are a lovely addition to an afternoon cup of tea. The addition of xanthan gum makes up for the absence of gluten in these cakes, and provides a nice “crumb” as well. If you are not concerned about sugar, brown or demara sugar crystals add sweetness and a bit of crunch. I use soy milk, but any type “milk” other than water will do. Store any leftovers in the freezer to retain freshness. And enjoy! ~ Glyn and Will
