Pre-heat oven to 150°C.
Into a mixing bowl place the oats, salt, bicarbonate of soda and combine.
Next gently warm the beef dripping in a microwave until it becomes runny.
Pour into the mixing bowl and stir through the oats.
Then a tablespoon at a time, add the cold water until you can mould the oat mixture into a ball. It should take 5 tablespoons, add more if required but don't make the oat mixture too wet.
Sprinkle the extra Medium Oatmeal onto your work surface, a little on the rolling pin too.
Roll the oatcake dough out into a thickness of 1cm.
Then using a medium pastry cutter, cut the dough into 10 oatcake circles.
Place the oatcakes on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and put into the pre-heated oven.
Bake the oatcakes for 1 hour at 150°C, flipping them over after 30 mins.
The oatcakes are ready when slightly golden and firm to the touch.
