Cheesy oatcakes

From Cookipedia

I saw a picture of these on Flickr whilst looking for various oatcake images and they looked so delicious that they we had to have the recipe. Dawn, who took the original picture and also listed the recipe, has kindly allowed us to use both. The original source of the recipe was from a bag of flour from Arrowhead mills, Boulder, Colorado.

Chef's notes

Quick-cooking oats, quick oats, easy oats, quick oatmeal, quick-cooking oatmeal, are the same thing.

If you have a food processor with a sharp steel blade, you can blitz oatmeal into oat flour at home.
