Super thin oatmeal crackers

by soffiagudrun

I love oatmeal, you can use it in so many different ways. It is very popular here in Iceland to eat a bowl of cooked oatmeal with milk for breakfast. You heat in a pot oatmeal, milk and salt. When you don´t finish the oatmeal bowl you can use it to make those little thicker pancakes we call lummur by adding it to a pancake mix.

Or if you have leftovers of the oatmeal you can make those really tasty oatmeal crackers.

You can use barley flakes as well as oats.



  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tsp salt

Put everything in a pot, bring to boil, simmer for 3-5 minutes. Put a baking sheet on an oven plate. Spread the oatmeal on the baking sheet, as thin as you can.

  • 2-3 tbsp some nice dukkah or good spices or nuts
  • 1-2 tbsp Maldon salt
I put some pistachio dukkah and salt evenly over the oatmeal spread.
Bake in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes at 220°c.
Scrape it carefully off the baking sheet and if it´s not crunchy enough turn it around and bake on the other side for 10 minutes or so.

Cool down and break it down into few parts.

Great healthy snack, just improvise with spices, oatmeal is so neutral tasting it will work with many kinds of spices.
