Oaty Crisps


I was doing a stock-take of my fridge and chanced upon a packet of mixed cereals tucked in an inconspicuous corner.   It must be some leftover.  A hurried check on the expiry date revealed that it's still edible.  So, I flicked through my recipe collection, subtract, add, tweak a bit and came up with these healthy cookies which I'll simply name, 'Oaty Crisps'.














These cookies are crispy on the outside and a little chewy on the inside and they are packed with wholesome  nutrients.  As the festive season is not too far away, I suppose this recipe will come in handy for X'mas too!

Ingredients
  • 4 oz plain flour
  • 4oz butter/margarine
  • 3 oz mixed cereal  OR  any type of dried fruits, nuts and seeds
  • 3 oz rolled oats
  • 3oz caster sugar
  • 2  Tbsp golden syrup
  • 1/2  tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2  tsp vanilla
  • a pinch of salt
Method
  1. Sift flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda in a mixing bowl, set aside.
  2. Mix in the rolled oats and mixed cereals.
  3. Combine golden syrup and butter in a saucepan, heat and keep stirring till butter melts.
  4. Pour in the melted butter/golden syrup mixutre into the flour mixture, and mix thoroughly.
  5. Roll mixture into balls, the size of a walnut.
  6. Place them 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking tray, press lightly with the palm of your hand.
  7. Bake in preheated oven @ 150 deg C for about 12 to 15 mins. or till golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool on tray for 5 mins. before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Store these cookies in an air-tight cookie jar once they are completely cooled.
  10. Makes 24 cookies.

  10. Looks so healthy with loads of oats in your cookies. Pity my bag of oats has gone stale in the cupboard instead of the fridge! I have to throw the whole it away!

Chocolate chip raisin butter cupcake ~ 巧克力葡萄干牛油蛋糕

I tweaked the Marble Butter Cake recipe to make these delicious cupcakes for breakfast and there were some leftovers for tea as well.  I managed to get 17 cupcakes from the recipe and was very pleased that there were no cracks on them after being baked.   My family members were equally pleased as the cupcakes weren't overly sweet as I had reduced the amount of sugar from the recipe.
