Me and baldie stayed a few days at my mum and dad's place this week. It was nice to get away and see my folks. My mum is a total health nut (she eats weeds from the garden, but that's another story). Plus she's a raw foodie so the pantry is always full of amazing ingredients.
I was in the mood for something yummy and the weather was wild and wooly so I thought I'd do a little baking. I decided to make a variation on the good old Anzac biscuit. They turned out freaking delicious. Recipe below:
1 cup organic wholemeal spelt flour
1 cup organic rolled oats
1 cup desiccated coconut
Pinch sea salt
3 medjool dates for sweetening
1 handful sultanas
2 tbsp organic molasses
1/2 tsp bi-carb soda
2 organic eggs
Set oven at 180
Combine flour, oats and coconut in a large bowl and add salt. Pit dates and chop roughly then add with sultanas to dry ingredients (be creative, add walnuts or cranberries if you like).
Melt butter and molasses together in the microwave and add bi-carb soda. Stir until frothy, then add your mixture to the ingredients in the bowl.
Add eggs and fold until its a nice thick consistency.
Grease two baking trays (I used spray on olive oil) then ball and evenly space your mixture onto the trays.
Pop in the oven for 20 minutes.
Then enjoy with a nice cup of tea
