San Fran-style oatcakes?

This may be a stretch, but...a friend of mine is completely in thrall to those dense, hockey-puck-like oatcakes that you find sold at hippie cafes all over the Bay Area. These are thick, pale, bricklike wodges, nothing like a cracker-ish Scottish oatcake. They seem like they're compacted rather than baked--if you know what I'm talking about, does anyone have any idea how she might make her own at home?
