Hi everyone, I am back! Do not wanna talk more about on my MIA from blogosphere as this is gonna be the same old story lol. Probably like what Irene of myme has said, I am a semi-retire blogger now hahaha...
Anyway I seldom bake cookies for CNY, I will normally out-source as I think that baking cookies is too time consuming, for a not so patience person like me is kind of chore lol. For this year, I have mood to bake some cookies suddenly. Initially thought of baking for own consumption but later change my mind, I wanna bake more to give away hahahaha....
I saw this crispy coconut oats cookies and decided that I must bake this since Irene raved so much about it. Moreover, there is no reason for me not to try it out due to 2 ingredients, oats sound healthy and dessicated coconut, sure gonna smell fragrance and coconut is my favourite!
I faced problem after mixing the wet ingredients into the dry ones, the batter is so so loose and crumbly that I cannot just scoop the batter and drop on the baking tray. I am not so sure is it suppose to be like that and it was already 9pm+, I can't give Irene a call to check since she must be sleeping by then. As I sometimes have problem of misread recipes, missing out ingredients, mis-measuring the ingredients thus I do not know did I make any mistake again :p. So in order to salvage the situation, I decided to add in 50g of melted butter, I do not dare to add in more golden syrup as I dun wan my cookies to be too sweet.The additional of butter did help but not much, the batter still loose and crumbly. I just used teaspoon to scoop and press hard on the batter to make it "tight".
During the gathering next day, both Irene and Ann of Anncoo Journal said that the batter is supposed to be like that.
Recipe adapted from Myme :
150g butter (I used 200g)
3 tbsp golden syrup
2 tbsp hot water
1.5 tsp baking soda
100g instant oats (I used roll oats)
100g dessicated coconut
150g plain flour
130g caster sugar
1. Melt butter and golden syrup together to light boil.
2. Mix baking soda into hot water until dissolve.
3. Combine instant oats, dessicated coconut, plain flour and sugar in a large bowl and mix well.
4. Pour in the melted butter mixture and baking soda water in no. 3 and mix well.
5. Grease and line the baking tray, scoop the batter in a teaspoon and drop on the tray. The cookies will spread up after bake so leave a gap in between cookies.
6. Bake the cookies at preheated oven at 160C for about 18-20 minutes.
The cookies are crispy and crunchy, smell so so nice. And Irene is right that this cookie is quite addictive, hard to stop at one, yum yum!
