Arthritic Almond Oatmeal Cakes

This recipe was given to me about 30 years ago by a lady who suffered very badly with Arthritis and she said that these cakes were arthritis friendly and she loved them. She got the recipe from someone from the Arthritis Foundation who recommended them to her. They have no eggs in the recipe so quite economical. I made them and really loved them and I am sure that you will too when you have tried them. The good news about them is that they are very healthy for you and just so simple to make. Keep them in an airtight container in the pantry and they will keep for several days. You can always replace the butter with a cholesterol lowering margarine instead if you are watching your cholesterol levels.


100 g butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
4 - 5 heaped tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon almond essence
3/4 cup SR flour - I use half white and half wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup quick oats (porridge)
60 g finely chopped blanched almonds

Cream butter and sugar then add water and essence and beat until smooth Sift dry ingredients together and add to the mixture. Add the oats and almonds then drop teaspoon of mixture onto a greased slide and bade in a moderate oven for about 14 - 15 minutes.
