While we were in Perth over Christmas I delved into Mum-in-law's recipe books and came up with a few new ones to try. This one I made while we were there and finally got around to making again this week. Funnily, the first time I made this one it came out quite crumbly and a bit dry. This time round it's crumbly but a bit too moist. Maybe I was being a bit stingey with the ingredients last time and a bit too sloppy this time. Who knows? Either way, it's yummy, easy and a nice afternoon tea treat.


As you can see from the photo I didn't manage to make bars as suggested, they ended up being 'bits' or 'chunks' instead. They still tasted good though!




Honey Oat Bars
From The Big Book of Beautiful Biscuits


1 Cup rolled oats
1 cup sultanas (raisins)
½ cup wholemeal SR flour
½ cup raw sugar
½ cup dessicated coconut
150g butter
1 Tablespoon honey

Preheat oven to 180˚C. Line a lamington tray with baking paper.
Combine oats, sultanas, sifted flour, sugar and coconut.
Melt butter. Add honey then mix into dry ingredients.
Press mixture evenly into prepared tray.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.
Remove from oven and cut into bars while still hot. Allow to cool completely in tray.
Store in an airtight container.

Looks like a fairly healthy cookie. Hey, and for most people, as long as it tastes good they don't care what it looks like!
