Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Littlebotsmom


1 cup oat flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp margarine
1/3 cup cold water
1/8 tsp xanthan gum (optional)


Preheat oven to 400 °F.

Stir together dry ingredients; cut in margarine until size of peas. Add cold water; stir gently to form soft dough. Knead lightly on board dusted with oat flour.

Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with 1 1/2-inch cutter and place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 15-20 minutes.


This worked really well as the topping for a pot pie. I just flattened it by hand between some waxed paper and then place it over the wet ingredients.


Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.
Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.
Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.
