Solar Baked Oatmeal Bites

A cross between a cracker and a cookie, these super easy to make, slightly sweet squares go well with cheese, soups, or even yogurt.

Sun Oven Oat Crackers

Ingredients

1/2 cup steel cut oats

2/3 cup wholewheat flour

1 teaspoons baking powder

pinch of salt

3 1/2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces

1 tablespoon sugar

2 tablespoons milk

Preparation

Set Sun Oven out to preheat. Line baking rack or rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat, set aside.

Whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, and salt. Using your fingertips, run the butter and sugar into the flour mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the milk and continue working with your hands to make a dough.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out to a rectangle about 1/4-inch thick. Cut into 12 squares. Using a spatula transfer the cut squares to the prepared baking rack, prick the tops with a fork. Bake in the Sun Oven until light golden, 20 to 30 minutes. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container up to 1 week.
