McWhirters Scottish Oatcakes



about our scottish oatcakes

Our recipe is adapted from the original, but with lots of additional, flavorful ingredients. They make the perfect On-the-Go Breakfast.

Cooking breakfast is time consuming, so I wanted to create something that was both nutritious and portable that my husband and I could grab as we headed out the door in the morning. I thought Scottish Oatcakes might do the trick. Much tweaking of the original recipe resulted in wonderfully tasty versions that are amazingly filling and satisfying.

McWhirter's Scottish Oatcakes have a high ratio of oatmeal to sugar, with just 2-5 grams of sugar per ounce. With their slow release of energy they are great for travel, kids after school snack, athletes, or for anyone as a quick, delicious breakfast with a favorite morning beverage. Commuters love them! Several customers who are diabetic have told us that our Oatcakes did not spike their blood sugar.

We hope you enjoy our Oatcakes as much as we enjoy bringing them to you!

"Fantastic flavors! Every time I enjoy one of your Oatcakes, that one becomes my new favorite. I keep a Ginger Orange in my glove compartment for those times I am on the road and get hunger pangs."

"I wanted to let you know that I had your oatcake for breakfast and it was delicious. It reminded me of the oatmeal cookies my grandmother used to make. There is nothing like the taste of real butter in a bakery product!"

"I work construction and carry an oatcake in my pocket
for when my energy lags in the afternoon.
It's hard to eat just one!"

"I take an oatcake into the deer stand and eat it quietly. Helps keep me awake."

"I have two boys (21 and 20) and
a 15 year old daughter. We all loved them
and were sampling the different flavors
last night. My picky w/food husband
even picked the cherry almond for
his breakfast-on-the-go this morning!"

"Just tried one of the orange ginger upon your recommendation today and it was very tasty! Not too sweet, and filling — great with our morning coffee. Since we have an extended trip coming up later this month we are stocking up!"

Mary G.

"I tried others and they don't compare to the ones you make. They may have been wonderful to others but after having yours we weren't satisfied. You have a variety of flavors so we both get our favorites, which we honestly have a hard time choosing because they are all wonderful."
