I introduce to you Crunchies...a South African favourite, truly the simplest and quickest biscuits of them all.
As long as you have a bag of oats lying around, you're away. My favourite part is measuring the golden syrup, man oh man golden syrup and me are very good friends, I always add a little extra just because.
Makes approx 24 pieces (depending on how big you cut them)
1 cup of flour
1 cup of coconut
1 cup of sugar
2 cups of oats
1 teaspoon of bicarb of soda
1 1/2 tablespoons of golden syrup
6 0z of margarine
Melt margarine and syrup, add to dry ingredients and mix well.
Spread in a tray and bake at 180C for about 15-20 mins or until golden brown
While still hot, cut into square and leave in the tray to cool.
Tip: The mixture may seem a little dry but you need not worry, when it bakes it all binds together. Just make sure you pack in in the tray tightly
