Spread the oats and sesame seeds on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 8 minutes. Transfer the toasted oats and sesame seeds to the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the flour, thyme, baking powder and salt and process until the oats are finely ground.
In a medium bowl or Mixer, whisk together the water and oil. Mix in the dry ingredients to form a dough.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Place the dough onto a baking sheet. Cover with foil or damp towel and keep refrigerated for 30 minutes.
Remove from fridge, remove towel and bake in oven for 15-20 minutes till golden brown.
*save foil so you can cover the crust in the oven if it starts getting to brown
