I promised this recipe the other day and even though I've been to a children's party, feel sugared out and the last thing I want to think about is sweet syrup biscuits, here it is.
Oat Crunchies (or Flapjacks)
90g plain flour
180g rolled oats
125g dessiccated coconut
pinch of salt
2.5 ml/1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons golden syrup
5 ml/ 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
30 ml milk
Combine flour, oats, coconut, salt, sugar and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Gently melt together the butter and golden syrup, then stir into the dry ingredients. Dissolve the bicarbonate in the milk and add to the mixture stirring well. Tip into a greased baking tray, press down all over till even, with the back of a spoon. Bake at 350F/180C for 15-20 mins until golden brown. Cut into squares in tin then leave to cool for a while before taking out of the tin.
The subject of birthday parties can wait until another day, but here is one tip: for children and mothers who have over-indulged on sugar and junk food at a birthday party, take one Tissue Salt No.10 - Nat Phos before, during and after the party. This should reduce the monster effects of party food. Keep taking them every hour until normality is reached!
