Kitchen Krafts - Crunchies

 Kay has to do a South African talk in two weeks time at her school and has been asked to bring some eats from the country for everyone to try. As such I have been trying out all the biscuit recipes I know to see which one will be the easiest to make and transport. This week I made some South African crunchies. This is another fast recipe and is complete in very little time.

I haven't done this recipe as a tutorial today but it is pretty straight-forward.
Your ingredients:
180g Margerine
2 Cups Oats
1 Cup Coconut
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Sugar
1 Tbsp Syrup (We don't get this here, but Table Molasses tastes very similar so I substituted the syrup with this)
1 tsp Bicarb

1. Melt the butter and syrup and add the bicarb to this. 
2. Mix in the dry ingredients.
3. Flatten out onto a greased baking tray.
4. Bake in a preheated oven (180 Deg Celcius) for 20 - 25 minutes.
5. Remove and cool slightly. Cut into squares.
6. When completely cool remove and store in container.

      They really are, love that, as I am really not an avid baker and like things to be really quick and really easy!
