Scottish Bannocks Inspired by Outlander

  • Author: Erin Browne
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 6 bannocks 1x


  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 TBS animal fat, shortening, or butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup coarsely ground oats


  1. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the fat with the milk and salt. When butter is melted, remove from heat, add the oats, and mix until fully combined.
  2. Turn dough out onto a cutting board and shape into a rectangle about 1/4" in thickness. Cut into sections as desired.
  3. Heat a cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add the bannocks to the skillet and cook until golden on each side, 3-5 minutes.
  4. If you're going for authentic, serve bannocks plain, dipped into a stew rich with root vegetables, or spread with butter and a wild berry jam.
