Oat Cakes, Lower-Carb

Susan Feliciano


Using a low carb baking mix for this recipe helps out those who must limit carbohydrate intake, such as diabetics and those seeking to lose weight.
I used "Carb Quick" mix in this recipe, but any lower-carb baking mix would work, such as Bob's Red Mill or Atkins.
