Description

A healthy mixture of nuts and grains make these biscuits extra crunchy.

Ingredients

  • 25g (1 cup) puffed amaranth
  • 100g (1 cup) rolled oats
  • 45g (1/2 cup) desiccated coconut
  • 50g (1/2 cup) flaked almonds
  • 75g (1/2 cup) plain flour
  • 80g (1/3 cup) firmly packed brown sugar
  • 100g unsalted butter, melted
  • 115g (1/3 cup) honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon bi carb soda

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan forced. Place amaranth, oats, coconut, almonds, flour and sugar in a large bowl, stir to combine.
  2. Place butter, honey and 1 tablespoon water in a medium size saucepan. Heat over a medium heat, stirring, to dissolve the butter. Add bicarb of soda (mixture will bubble vigorously) and remove from heat. Add to dry ingredients, stir until well combined.
  3. With lightly wet hands, shape tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place 3cm apart on prepared tray. Flatten slightly with your fingertips, (the biscuits spread a little)
  4. Bake for 12 minutes, or until a deep golden brown. Remove and set aside to cool completely on the tray. Store in an airtight container.
