Recipe for The Most Delicious Oaty Coconut Bars Recipe

These are gorgeous. I mean, really tasty. Well, I guess if you don’t like oats or coconut you might want to pass, but if you do, you HAVE to try these. And as a bonus, they are really quick to make. AND, if you can’t wait for them to cool down, they’re also delicious warm. Just be careful not to eat them too soon. We don’t want any burnt mouths do we?!! And this isn’t just my own opinion. Nooooo. A few people have eaten these and think they’re yummy too. I bake for my classes. Some might say I use them as guinea pigs for my new bakes, but of course I wouldn’t agree with that! Well, kinda. But when they get yummy treats like this, they can’t really complain can they?? Let’s get to the important bit- the recipe. Ingredients 160g porridge oats 90g dessicated coconut 175g caster sugar 125g plain flour 2 heaped tablespoons golden syrup 150g butter/baking margarine (I used dairy free spread, use whatever you prefer) Method 1. Line an 8″ square tin with baking paper and heat the oven to 170 degrees. 2. Put the butter and golden syrup in a large saucepan and melt over a medium heat, stirring. Once melted, take off the heat. 3. Add all of the other ingredients to the melted butter mixture, and stir until fully combined. 4. Pour it into the prepared tin, and flatten it out so it is evenly spread in the tin. 5. Bake for 20 mins. 6. Cool in the tin for about 10 minutes, then transfer the bake in the baking paper to a cooling rack to fully cool (or scoff some while it’s still warm- but remember no burnt mouths!), then cut into 12 pieces. Simple as that. Ready in half an hour or so. Delicious. Let me know if you try them and what you think. Enjoy! oaty coconut bars named If you like this recipe you might also like Nutella Oat Cookies or Oaty Banana Bites or Anzac Biscuits are also pretty yummy.

nutella oat cookies While I was making the Fruit Muesli and Peanut Butter Cookies, I decided to try a chocolate based ones for the children, knowing that they will not touch dried fruit with a barge pole now- despite eating their own body weight in it when they were toddlers. So this is a simple recipe for Nutella Oat Cookies, same method as the other cookies. As an aside, I might try these with no added sugar, I’m not sure they need any added.

Ingredients

1/2 cup of nutella 1/8 cup of sugar 1 egg 1 & 1/4 cup of porridge oats Method 1. Mix the nutella and sugar together. (Warm the nutella a little first if you’re finding it a tough job). 2. Mix in the egg. 3. Stir in the  oats until fully combined. 4. Spoon on to a tray lined with baking paper. The quality I used made 12 balls, about golf ball size, or maybe slightly bigger. 5. Bake in the oven at 160 degrees for 8-10 minutes until slightly golden brown. 6. Leave on the tray to cool for about ten minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. 7. And there you are- Nutella Oat Cookies. Simple 🙂 Enjoy!

fruit museli and peanut butter cookies

I love food and I love making it. I cannot get away from that fact. In order to try and counteract this a bit, I’m a) trying to up my exercise levels and b) trying out slightly healthily snacks and recipes at the moment. But I don’t want them to taste like rabbit food. Try as I might, muesli, even when laden with fruits does not float my boat. So I tried out this recipe today, based on one from the marvellous Feed Your Family For About £20 a Week facebook page, in order to use it up! I’ve used cup measurements, but don’t worry if you don’t have measuring cups. Either use a conversion table you can find using google, or just grab a teacup and stick to the same ratios. You might get a different amount of cookies than me, but the recipe will still work. So, here’s how you make Fruit Muesli and Peanut Butter Cookies.

Ingredients

1/2 cup of peanut butter (I used crunchy, but it would work with smooth too). 1/4 cup of sugar 1 egg 1 & 1/4 cup of fruit muesli (or you could use porridge oats and a selection of dried fruit) Method 1. Mix the peanut butter and sugar together. (Warm the peanut butter a little first if you’re finding it a tough job). 2. Mix in the egg. 3. Stir in the muesli/oat mixture until fully combined. 4. Spoon on to a tray lined with baking paper. The quality I used made 12 balls, about golf ball size, or maybe slightly bigger. 5. Bake in the oven at 160 degrees for 8-10 minutes until slightly golden brown. 6. Leave on the tray to cool for about ten minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

These little beauties are gorgeous!! They’ve come about because one of the lovely ladies who attends my classes is dairy free. I like to bake for the students at my classes, so was looking for a dairy free recipe. I found a recipe I liked, but tweaked it a bit and now I’m going to share it with you! Be prepared- the dough needs to chill for AT LEAST 4 hours, overnight is even better. So if you want to make these cookies you have to be patient!
Ingredients (makes 32-36 cookies)
85g cocoa powder
400g caster sugar
125ml vegetable oil
4 eggs         
250g plain flour            
2 teaspoons baking powder            
a pinch of salt
60g icing sugar
What to do:
1. In a bowl, mix together the cocoa, caster sugar and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix until fully combined. Cover dough, and chill for at least 4 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Line baking trays with parchment. Roll dough into 2.5cm balls. Coat each ball in icing sugar before placing onto prepared trays. (Easiest way to do this is put the icing sugar in a bowl and roll the dough around inside it). I used 3 baking trays with 12 per tray. I won’t lie to you- this is a sticky job. You might have to wash your hands a few times whilst doing this step. But ‘stick’ with it, they’re worth it.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Let stand on the baking tray for about 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.
4. Enjoy!!
At the time of writing I still have some from the first batch we made (we have made another batch since that went into school for the teachers!) and four days on they are still very yummy. 
Let me know if you make them and what you think.
