Maple Chai Oatcakes (GF)

As Canadians we’re known to love maple syrup, and as Nova Scotians, we’re also known to love oatcakes. Why not do a lovely combo of the two. Add in some of that cozy chai spice (cinnamon/fennel seed/green cardamom) and you’ve got yourself the best anytime of the day snack, great for dunking in your cup of tea or coffee. Another gluten-free recipe, it’s quick with minimal work (you will get your hands dirty!). Making just under 2 dozen, these are great for sharing with friends or coworkers, or keep them in the freezer for when you have that unexpected company pop in! The option of dipping them in chocolate, white chocolate, or whatever inspires you in the moment, is totally up to you. Plain Jane is also great too. Find yourself a spare 20 minutes and get yourself a batch!

If you’ve made these, tag or send your creation over to @bairdsbaking on Instagram so I can share in my stories. It’s definitely exciting to see how things turn out for others.

Maple Chai Oatcakes

  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Bake time: 15 minutes
  • Yields: 20 Oatcakes


  • 140g Gluten Free Flour
  • 100g Almond Flour
  • 200g Gluten Free Oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chai spice (optional sub cinnamon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 112g Vegan Butter (unsalted)
  • 4 tablespoons (60mls) Maple Syrup
  • 210g Brown Sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350°F, and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, blend together the gluten-free flour, almond flour, oats, chai spice, salt, and baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl, cream together the butter, maple syrup, and brown sugar, until well combined.
  • Fold the dry ingredients into the maple syrup mixture until a dough starts to form.
  • On a lightly floured surface (I worked on my silicone mat), bring together the dough and work it until all the flour mixture is combined. If needed, wet hands to bring it together.
  • Make a circle shape with the dough, and roll out until about 1/4” thick.
  • Cut oatcakes either into circles or squares, and place on prepared baking sheet, about 1-2” apart.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, looking for that nice deep golden colour on the edges.
  • Let cool, and dip in melted chocolate if desired.
