  3. Take 100g of the oats out of the bowl and put in a blender, and blend to make flour.
  4. Put this back into the main bowl with the rest of the oats, and add the salt and sugar.
  5. Put the butter into the boiling water and stir until melted.
  6. Pour into your bowl with the oats and combine until it begins to hold together.
  7. Dust your work surface with pinhead oatmeal and roll out your dough until it is around 5mm thick.
  8. Use a gingerbread man cookie cutter to cut out your oatcakes.
  9. Bake the oatcakes for around 20 minutes.
