Made these last night (using

Made these last night (using macadamia nut oil, which was a first for me) and they were fantastic!

So good in fact, that this morning for breakfast I had poached eggs with a little pesto on these oatcakes and it kept me going all morning!


Sounds great! I want to make

Sounds great! I want to make these, but wondering if the macadamia oil can be substitued? Could I use another type of oil (or even melted margarine/butter) and still get the same result?

Macadamia oil has a nutty

Macadamia oil has a nutty taste, and is used in this recipe to enhance flavour. Macadamia oil is also heat tolerant and high in antioxidants. Olive oil can tolerate boiling and the cooking time in this recipe, and could therefore be used as a substitute for macadamia oil. Margarine could also be used, though Nutrition Australia does not recommend the use of butter due to it’s high energy and saturated fat content.
