the kindness story

craft bakers since 1947

Three generations ago William Kindness opened his bakery and set his standard, we’ve not compromised on that. For us the secret to great baking is simple; use the finest ingredients. That’s why our Oatcakes Bites are made from specially sourced oats, grown and milled locally, so we can inspect and judge them.

We don’t use the cheapest cheese available; we select Lockerbie Cheddar because it has the flavour profile and consistency we demand. Don’t just take our word for it, our oatcakes consistently win Great Taste Awards and we are now a Great Taste Award Producer, a member of the Scottish Bakers Association, The Guild of Fine Foods and SALSA.

A gorgeous crunch, oats and warming, with hints of cheese and a touch of sweetness the finish does have some very good oat and cheese character and it is beautifully baked

We loved the oats and buttery flavour and found them beautifully seasoned

Attractive bite size oatcakes, great crisp texture with plenty of bite from the oats. You certainly get the pepper bomb at the end of eating these wow!

Really attractive rustic oatcakes with evidence of pickle throughout. A lovely crunch and very moreish

A very good, oven baked, rolled oat aroma, the texture is very good, buttery,cheesy and savoury. Wonderful with good butter and just as a snack very moreish.

Could you let me know where in Aberdeen I can buy the Chilli oatcake Bites or any other oatcake made by The Kindness Bakery? They are wonderful

The Mature Cheddar Oatcake Bites were indeed bursting with cheese and had a luscious buttery yet oats texture. The strong cheese was delicious and created an interesting biscuit with lots of depth

On my recent holiday I purchased The Kindness Bakery chilli Oatcake from the deli in Stornaway. They are the most amazing oatcakes ever.
