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.
