Mock Oat Cakes Are the Way to Go!

~I Honestly Think These Are Better Than the Real Thing!~

Since I am allergic to oats, I may be partial - but I really think these are better than the traditional oat cake. Now, all of you from Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales, hear me out: these are far higher in protein, lower in sugar and have healthy olive oil in them. They still keep for several weeks in an airtight container, but you are pretty much guaranteed they won't last that long - you'll eat them far faster than they'll ever go bad. Although they are a bit finicky to make, they are really, really, REALLY good. Try them and I know you will agree: Mock Oat Cakes are Incredible! They are also free from oats, gluten, dairy, eggs, corn, soy and are vegetarian and vegan!
For those that do not want to make these themselves, I will have these for sale on my Etsy Store shortly!

Mock Oat Cakes

4 cups Instant Quinoa Flakes
1 Scant cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3/4 Cup Sugar (Cane sugar is great, but you may need to whiz it in a blender to make it a bit finer)
1 Cup All-Purpose GF Flour Mix
Dash of Salt
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Xanthan Gum
1/4-1 Cup Boiling Water

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Have on hand 2 non stick baking sheets.
Mix all ingredients except the boiling water until well combined. SLOWLY add the boiling water, a little at a time, until the mixture is the consistency of cookie dough, and will form a ball with your hands.
Taking a small handful at a time, roll into a ball about 1-1/2 inches in diameter, place on the cookie sheet and press it out until it is about 1/4 inch thick and 2-1/2 inches in diameter. Repeat with the remaining dough, leaving about 1/4 inch between each cake.
Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden. Cool on a wire rack and then store in an airtight container.
Sooooo Delicious!!
