Cheese-Onion Bannocks

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by akgrown

Bannocks are Scottish oatcakes, similar to scones. Coarsely ground oats provide a hearty, slightly chewy texture to this savory version that's excellent as a snack or alongside a bowl of soup. We love these with Simple Chicken and Oat Groat Soup. From Cooking Light.
