Chrunchie Munchie

Sometimes you want to have a biscuit that is tasty and that you can convince yourself is good for you too. This is when I make crunchies.

Sometimes I make them soft and chewy, and sometimes they are hard and crispy. They are always filled with nuts, never fruit!

They are simple (surprise-surprise) and you can add anything from nuts to choc-chips, depending on how healthy you feel.


2 cups of Oats
1 cup of Sugar
1 cup of Flour
2 Tbsp. Golden Syrup
½ cup of butter

½ cup of flaked almonds
½ cup sunflower seeds
1 tsp. Bi- Carb

Melt butter and golden syrup, add bi-carb and mix together well.
Mix dry ingredients separately. Pour in butter mixture. Mix well.
Press into baking tray. (A shallow tray makes a crispy crunchie
And a deep pan makes a chewy texture).
Bake at 200°C for about 25 minutes.

Everyone in my family likes these, which is unusual, but it does prove just how good they are.

These look like perfect snack / hiking / hungry kids in the car food. Tasty granola bars without additives!

They really are, and I don't feel guilty eating 3 in one sitting either!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
