I'm only adding this as I want a discount voucher, but being perfectionist, I would not offer anything less than.. well, perfect. The recipie has a strange amount of ingredients as it's not from the recipie book, please, don't be put off by that (and of course, you don't have to measure exactly). These are incredibly tasty, chewy and full of 'healthy energy' cookies. Best eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, with milk or in the park. Also, I would like to mention, that it's not worth baking it if you are going to substitute or skip ingredients such as dried coconut, semolina, oat groats, cacao bean nibs and prunes, as without it, it will just be like any other cookies you've made before... p.s. sorry about the photo, only two cookies were left by the time i've got to my camera...
Makes 20- 24 cookies (760g in weight)
108g white self- rising flour
1,5 teaspoon baking powder
39g brown sugar
115g oat groats (it needs to be soaked in water over night or some hours, then rinsed and drained well before usage)
84g dried unsweetened coconut
2 big full table spoons cacao nibs
110g of roughly chopped dried prunes
68g butter, cold and diced
100g tahini (approx. 2 full table spoons)
2 table spoons sour cream
90g golden syrup (runny honey would also be good, but syrup gives more caramelised flavour)
Sieve flour and baking powder. add butter and work it into the flour, untill it looks like breadcrumbs. then mix in sugar, semolina, oat groats, coconut, cacao nibs and prunes at the end.
Mix tahini and sour cream together, then add golden syrup and mix untill smooth and glossy. (no mixers needed, just a spoon)
Put dry and wet ingredients together, mix well.
On a floured tray scoop the dough using two teaspoons (just scooping with one and scraping out with the other on to the tray, making 3 cm high balls), leaving some space in between as cookies will get bigger when baking.
Cook in preheated oven, gas mark 4-5, just over 20 min, untill nicely golden brown.
(Two trays, or baking in two batches may be required, as it makes a lot of cookies)
