Makes 9 large or 12-15 small crunchies
170g unsalted butter, cut into blocks
30ml (2 Tbsp) honey
75g white sugar
75g soft brown sugar
375ml (1 ½ cups) oats
310ml (1 ¼ cup) cake flour
80ml (1/3 cup) almonds or mixed nuts, chopped
250ml (1 cup) desiccated coconut
5ml (1 tsp) cinnamon
5ml (1 tsp) nutmeg
5ml (1 tsp) baking soda
5ml (1 tsp) salt
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and spray with non-stick food spray.
Combine the butter, honey, and both sugars in a small saucepan. Melt on a low-medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, flour, nuts, coconut, spices, baking soda, and salt. Mix well and combine the dry mixture with the sugar mixture, then mix until well combined.
Press the mixture into your baking tray to the thickness of your liking. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow cooling on the work surface for about 2-3 minutes. Remove the crunchies and cut them into squares while still warm. Place on a cooling rack and allow to cool.
