If you’re looking for a savoury Christmas snack then these star-shaped butternut squash oatcakes are for you.

They are very easy to make – in fact they’re perfect for little ones to help with. They are going to feature as our final mini chefs session for the year.



Makes 24-36 (depending on size)

150 grams ground oats

100g butternut squash purée (or sweet potato purée)

50g grated cheese (use vegan cheese if needed)

2 tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)

2 tablespoons cold water



  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (fan)/200°C/gas mark 6.
  2. Cover two baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Place 150 grams of ground oats into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add 100g butternut squash purée and 50 grams grated cheese.
  4. Mix well – you may need to use your hands.
  5. Add cold water half a tablespoon at a time and continue mixing together until it comes together into a rough dough.
  6. Knead for a minute or so until smooth.
  7. Lightly flour a work surface and roll out with a rolling pin or the long flat side of a glass or bottle until it is about the thickness of a £1 coin.
  8. Cut out with your cookie cutter into shapes then place onto your prepared baking tray. If you don’t have a cookie cutter you can use a mug to make circles.
  9. If liked press a few sesame seeds into each one.
  10. Bake in your preheated oven for 10-15 minutes (smaller oatcakes will cook quicker) until golden brown on top.
  11. Remove and cool on a wire cooling rack.
  12. When cool store in an airtight container or in the freezer.
