Chocolate Drizzled Oatcakes

One of my all-time favourite treats is getting an oatcake from local coffee shop. This recipe makes a delicious 300 calorie snack, breakfast alternative or mid-afternoon energy boost to get you through to supper. Oats are full of fiber, a good source of iron and are one of those foods that leave you feeling full for a while.
