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.

Pandan Coconut Milk Bread ~ 香兰椰奶面包

  I made  this bread using the Wool Roll bread recipe and just substituted milk with coconut milk, added a bit of pandan paste and instead of melted butter, I used cooking oil.  Feel free to use coconut oil if you have it at hand.  This bread is soft and light and it stayed fresh till after the third day in a container, at room temperature.  You can eat it on its own accompanied with a cup of hot kopi O or slathered with butter and in my case, peanut butter.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too! Mixed Fruit Bread  ~    杂果面包 Ingredients 290 gm high protein flour 10 gm wholemeal flour 30 gm sugar 3.1/2 tsp milk powder 18 gm butter (cubed) 1 tsp seasalt 100 gm dried mixed fruits (I used cranberries, sultanas and golden raisin) 1 whole egg beaten wtih 1/2 tsp water, for egg wash 1/8 to 1/4 tsp cinnamon  (optional) 2 tsp dry yeast             ) 170 ml warm water     )  Yeast mixture 1 Tbsp sugar               ) Method Add yeast and sugar to warm water, stir and let it set for about 5 to 8 mins. till foamy.
