Healthy Tip

These lovely, light, crisp oatcakes are a perfect snack to have with any homemade dip.Β  Oats are extremely high in fibre and score low on the glycemic index. Eating oats will provide a slow release of energy which make them perfect for stabilising blood sugar and preventing any sudden cravings. The little power houses that are Chia and Flax seeds are loaded with the all essential Omega 3 fatty acids and are abundant in protein and minerals. Sesame seeds are incredibly high in calcium and add such a lovely flavour to these crackers.Β  To top this, all three of these seeds contain lignans which are powerful antioxidants and good for immune system support. What a bonus! Ultimately, these crackers are free from any of the usual gut-aggravates such as dairy, sugar and gluten and are perfect in supporting a healthy gut.Β  For those who have non-coeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) please use oats that have not been cross contaminated with other gluten grains.

Hope you enjoy!
