Crunchies

Crunchies

These delicious buttery and crispy oat biscuits are legendary in South Africa. Although they look like flapjack they are a completely different in texture and have just a hint of saltiness to the coconut crunch. Use a 20cm x 30cm deep baking the tray which when baked will cut into about 20 pieces.

Date Slices

Date Slices

This recipe really stands the test of time and I have been making it since the late 1970's! It is oat based and has no added sugar in the date filling. Made with a dairy free fat such as Vitalite then it is also dairy free. What with all the current rage of clean eating, vegan and sugar free cakes, breakfast bars and superfoods then I suggest that you just give this old fashioned recipe a try. Apples, apricots and prunes all work well in the filling. Just substitute half and half or all.
