If you will go through my blog you will know I am completely into baking sweet things but my husband asked me to bake something healthy and salty. Also, he is a big fan of oats so I have to include oats anyhow. Then I came up with this recipe and it became my household snack item.
Let me run you through the details:
For these you need rolled or quick-cooking oats. Here I am using a combination of whole wheat and all-purpose flour. You can use only all-purpose flour too. For the dough, I am using buttermilk here. For the flavouring, I am using basil, parsley and onion. You can use whatever you like, even plain works fine here. For the shape, you can have diagonals, squares, rectangles etc.
How do you serve them?
Well, they also taste best as it is too. You can also make a layer of mayo with some veggies and then tomato sauce. You can also have them as your tea time snack. It's up to you how you customise as your taste.
1/2 cup (60 g) rolled oats
1/2 cup (65 g) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (70 g) whole wheat flour
1/2 small cut onion
1 tbsp coriander leaves/parsley(optional)
1 tbsp basil leaves(optional)
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 tbsp soft butter
1 tsp salt
3 tsp sugar
1/2 baking soda
Preheat oven at 180c for 10 min.
In a bowl mix all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt and baking soda. Mix in chopped onion, coriander/parsley and basil leaves. Set this aside.
In a separate bowl using whisk mix butter and sugar well until it becomes creamy. Now add all your dry ingredients to it. Using buttermilk make a dough.
Using dry flour roll out the dough into a thin sheet. Now using cutter or knife make cutouts. Apply milk and some oil over the pieces and bake for 25-30 min.
Apply butter when out of the oven to gain the desired brown colour.
