I’ve cracked it guys, my low-carb take on the humble oatcake! A good oatcake is one of the things I missed most when I first went keto. Ok, so they’re not quite the same but they’re a pretty good close second. Buttery, crisp, yet slightly chewy and perfect for snacking on.

I like to serve them with guacamole or keto hummus but feel free to top with whatever keto toppings you have in the fridge. Smoked salmon and cream cheese is always a winner too. How would you top yours?

To customise these low-carb oatcakes, you can always try cracked black pepper in the mix or some herbs like rosemary and garlic or onion powder. I’ve given a few suggestions below but get creative and put your own spin on them.

  • 2 tbsp chopped rosemary + 1/2 garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp thyme + 1/2 onion powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika + pinch of cayenne pepper
