In an effort to save my reputation after that last post, here's a recipe :-)
1 cup coconut
3/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup wholemeal SR flour (it needed more than that - at least an extra 1/2 cup)
1 cup rolled oats
Toast coconut and sesame seeds on a dry baking tray. Mix together the oil, butter, honey and sugar. Add the coconut, sesame seeds, flour and oats. Roll into balls and bake in a moderate oven.
I melt the butter in a big saucepan, and then add all the other ingredients to that.
The first time I made these I left out the oil and used all butter instead, and the second time I used a coconut oil and butter mixture, which was yummy. We buy bulk organic coconut, spelt flour, sesame seeds and rapadura sugar (unrefined sugar) from Santos trading, so I can make recipes like these and imagine they're healthy.
And so we will be well on our way to becoming domestic goddesses, here are some more of Amanda Keller's handy hints:
If you're bothered by bad smells from your oven, why not cook something that smells nice for a change?
Cleaning windows is hard work. Make it easier on yourself by covering your windows with plastic wrap. When they get dirty, just peel it off.
