  • Place your oats in a food processor and blitz until they resemble fine breadcrumbs.
  • In a steamer add your cauliflower florets and steam for 20 minutes. Once steamed drain and allow to cool. Place in a clean pillow case and squeeze out all excess water.
  • Place in a bowl ½ the cauliflower along with the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Start to combine the mixture into a dough by adding a bit more cauliflower at a time until it is fully combined.
  • Twist them into straw strips and place them on a baking mat inside your air fryer.
  • Cook for 10 minutes on each side at 180c.
  • Serve.


You get the crunchy taste from the gluten free oats but you could go without and still have a great flavoured cheese straw.
