Oat financiers for Louise

Oat financiers for Louise

These moist little petit-four cakes are called 'financiers' in French, as they are similar in shape to gold ingots! They go very well with tea or coffee. In this version, the usual ground almonds are replaced with rolled oats, blended to a powdery texture.
