I love crunchy cookies.
I mean, I also love the soft and chewy Mrs Field’s cookies, but crunchy is my favourite in general.
This morning on errand #2 I stopped at the bakery to buy some crunchy cookies (cause I deserved it) only to find they were out. Oh no. So I bought what I thought LOOKED crunchy – oat and cranberry – but they were disappointingly soft in a not-so-delicious-as-Mrs-Field’s way.
So I looked through my recipe book for something I could make with what I had and found this weetbix slice a lady at one of my jobs in Tasmania used to make. Its really quick and easy and its superbly crunchy!
- 1 cup coconut
- 1 cup self raising flour (though I don’t know why plain wouldn’t do)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3 weetbix (crushed)
- 6oz (170g) butter
The instructions said to melt butter and mix with dry ingredients. I softened the butter and put it all into the food processor for a minute. Viola. Ready.
Press into a baking dish and bake till brown on top at 150C.
I probably had the oven at 160C and I also didn’t have the right size square baking dish so I used a pizza pan. I couldn’t cut it into nice squares so I broke it into pieces. So basically I did everything different except the ingredients. It worked out fine.
It took next to no time to make. Quick to bake and great to eat!
