Oatcakes (Petit Appetit)

2 cups rolled oats

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp salt

2 T butter, melted

1 T honey

3 T finely chopped dried fruit

2 T unsweetened finely shredded coconut

1 cup water

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and grease.

Put oats, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add the butter and honey. Combine until oats are coated. Mix in fruit and coconut. Heat 1 cup water until very hot but not boiling. Stir in water by tablespoonfuls until mixture becomes sticky dough. (I think I used about 1/2 cup the first time)

Scoop and drop on prepared baking sheet. With wet fingertips, shape dough into 2-inch rounded, flat oatcakes. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown and the oatcakes are firm and not sticky. Remove to wire rack and cool.
