Seeing as it is exam season, I just have to share this Crunchie recipe with you.  My mom always made these for my brother and I, not only during exam time but throughout the year.  It is a great study snack, they give a boost of energy and these crunchies are delicious.  I made a batch for Ross while he was studying for exams recently and needless to say, they didn’t last very long.


125g butter

250ml brown sugar

15ml golden syrup

5ml bicarbonate of soda

250ml rolled oats

250ml cake flour

250ml dessicated coconut


1.  Preheat the oven to 180˚C.  Grease a rectangular baking tray (24cmx34cm).

2.  Place the butter, brown sugar and syrup in a saucepan and heat over a low temperature until all the butter has melted.  Add the bicarb and stir until mixed.

3.  Mix the rolled oats, cake flour and coconut in a mixing bowl and then pour in the syrup mixture.  Stir until mixed and then place the mix in the prepared tray.  Press it down evenly with the back of a spoon and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

4.  Remove from the oven and cut into squares while the crunchies are still warm.  Allow to cool in the baking tray before lifting out the squares.

Snack Attack!

One of my favourite (fairly healthy) snacks is a slice of wholewheat toast spread with two teaspoons of peanut butter, one banana (sliced up) and a drizzle of honey.  This before a run gives me insane energy and endurance.  Plus, it tastes pretty damn delicious.  Try it!
