  1. 1

    Blitz the Mornflake Superfast Oats/Scottish Jumbo oats in a food processor with the blade attachment fitted or in a smoothie maker until you have a very fine ‘flour’. 

  2. 2

    Remove 50g for rolling the wraps later. 

  3. 3

    Pour the rest into a bowl, add the salt and stir.

  4. 4

    Pour the water into the bowl and use a blunt knife to bring the dough together. 

  5. 5

    Knead well for 3 minutes by hand or 1 – 2 minutes in a mixer with a dough hook.

  6. 6

    Use a spoon to scoop 6 balls of dough from the mixture, coat in the oat ‘flour’ set aside earlier, then flatten into a disc and place on a large plate. 

  7. 7

    Cover the whole plate and leave the dough to rest for 15 minutes. 

  8. 8

    Use a rolling pin to roll each disc into a very thin wrap, using more oat ‘flour’ to stop it from sticking to the work surface, then fry for 1 – 2 minutes on each side in a frying pan over a medium heat.

  9. 9

    Fill with grated carrot, hummus and raisins for a healthy lunch, or whatever you prefer. 

    NB: These wraps are best eaten within 48 hours of making, but they freeze really well. Simply place a sheet of non-stick baking paper between each wrap before freezing. Leave to defrost at room temperature and reheat if you wish in the microwave or by briefly frying in a hot pan.
