Crunchies with seeds


This is probably the 1st recipe that I ever baked.  My Mum made them extra special by adding seeds and I now also sometimes add choc chips or cranberries.  The baking tray which I use is 22cm x 35cm


160 Grams Margarine

20 ml golden syrup

¾ Cups sugar

1  tsp bicarbonate of soda (Baking soda)

1 Cup coconut

80 ml seeds (sunflower, sesame, poppy or a mixture)

1 Cup flour

2 Cups oats

pinch salt

1) Melt margarine, syrup and sugar. Do not boil
2) Mix dry ingredients well together
3) Add bicarbonate soda to liquid and stir
4) Add liquid to dry mix and stir well
5) Bake for 20 mins at 180
6) While still hot cut into squares

For a nice variation add about half a cup of choc chips or cranberries.

I have always iced my crunchies with a water icing glaze, I make water icing by combining about a cup of icing sugar with a little water (for a chocolate variation add about 15 ml of cocoa), spread the glaze over the top before cutting,
