Today's baking experiment: Meusli Cookies

From a recipe passed on by a friend, who'd gotten it from her daughter-in-law ... so I have no known source of origin. It can be made into a slice, but since I'd thrown out my slice tray recently, I've made the mixture into cookies instead.

Note: For outside Australia you may substitute the S.R. (Self Raising flour) with an all-purpose flour product.

125 grams butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tblsp. honey
1-1/3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup S.R. flour
1/2 cup cranberries
1/2 cup dried pineapple (chopped)
1/2 cup slivered almonds
2 tblsp. pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

Melt butter and honey; then stir in dry ingredients.

Bake at approx. 160 deg. Celcius (320 deg. Fahrenheit), depending on your oven, for about 20 minutes.

Note: Cool before removing from tray, or before cutting through, if making as a slice.

Have taste-tested the results now, and give it the two coffee cups thumbs up; they're very tasty!

Carole, these were delicious. Although next time I will use less sugar. I didn't have cranberries and dried pineapple so I used raisins and dried apricots instead. I baked it in a square pan and cut them into bars. Yummy!!!! Thanks for sharing.
