Posh Nosh: Crunchy oat cookies

Depending on how you look at it, oats are either delicious or a tedious health food to get through to keep cholesterol levels low.

Most mornings, my breakfast is a bowl of steel-cut oats.

It fills me up and stops me from snacking before lunch.

A more palatable way of getting some oats in the diet might be to munch on these delicious oat biscuits as a snack, instead of scarfing down chocolate or chips.

They are not stodgy at all, and the flavour of celery adds some interest.

The square biscuits are also sprinkled with flakes of sea salt.

Have them with cheese or pate by all means, but I like them plain.
