Cape Grace has for many years served the yummiest crunchies around. I have used that recipe as a foundation and tried to make it easier, upped the fibre and dropped the butter and sugar. I think my version is pretty damned delicious… try them and let me know?
Makes about 30 crunchies
2 cups (200g) of desiccated coconut
½ cup toasted seed mix (omega mix or miracle mix or ultimate mix)
2 cups (250g) of jungle oats
2 cups rice crispies
2 cups brown or nutty wheat flour
½ cup treacle sugar
½ tsp of Salt
Mix the above in a large mixing bowl
300g melted butter
1 cup of honey or golden syrup
2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Melt and whisk together the above 3 ingredients until it starts foaming, then add to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Press the mixture lightly into a greased baking tray – try to use quite a deep baking tray and get the mixture about 2 – 3cm thick. Bake in a pre-heated oven 170C for 15 – 20mins or until golden brown in colour.
Allow to cool before turning out and cutting into squares. Store in an air tight container.
