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.
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.
