How to make Scottish Oat Cakes? (like the "oat cakes" from Macrina Bakery in Seattle)

sweet100s | Feb 19, 2012 12:33 AM

While vacationing in Seattle last fall to escape the Texas heat, I experienced Oat Cakes from Macrina Bakery & Cafe.

It was 10am on a weekend morning, I had just stepped inside and was taking in all the delicious and interesting options. A runner comes in, takes a quick look at the goodies behind the glass, and starts to seem anxious. "You aren't out of Oat Cakes are you?"

At that point I had picked out a plum croissant and a sour lemon cherry coffee cake. The "oat cake" plate retrieved from hiding looked like uninteresting triangles of compressed something. But since Ms. Runner seemed so relieved to get one, I asked her what was the deal. She said, "Try it; I promise you'll understand."

I remember the plum croissant was completely delicious (I love plums), I don't remember the coffee cake, but I am absolutely craving those oat cakes.

Does any know how to make them?

Macrina Bakery's version looked more like these:
