1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F/Gas 7) and line a baking sheet with non-stick baking paper or use a loaf tin liner.
2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and stir in the oats and some salt and pepper. Rub in the butter with your fingers; alternatively whizz together in a food processor.
3. Stir in the grated apples, cheese and mustard and then mix in the egg, keeping a teaspoonful to one side to glaze the tops.
4. Bring together with your hands and then form into 12 rough balls. Place on the lined baking sheet and then slash a deep cross in the middle of each ball of dough. Brush the tops with the remaining egg
and sprinkle with a few oats.
5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes. To check if they’re done, lift one up with a palette knife and peek underneath; it should lift away cleanly and be mottled and golden on the bottom. Transfer to a
wire rack to cool.
