My youngest is getting to the stage now where she wants lots of snacks in between meals, so I wanted to make something that would be handy to take out and about with me too. These were delicious and worked really well. Infact they are not just yummy for your little ones, but great for adults too. I had to hide them away to stop myself nibbling at them.
Mango, Pineapple and Coconut Oaty Biscuits
Makes 10 Oaty Biscuits
- 1 cup (240ml) of old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup (120ml) of 100% pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup (120ml) of water
- 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter
- 50g of dried mango (make sure it is the natural kind, not ones with sugar added)
- 14g of unsweetened coconut
- 30g of california raisins
Preheat oven to 180c or 350f (gas mark 4)
Place oats in a mini foot processor and give a few blitzes of the blade.
Add the oats to a small saucepan along with the pineapple juice, water and butter and bring to a boil, then simmer until liquid is absorbed and oats are thickened.
Add the dried mango, coconut and raisins to the mini food processor and grind for a few seconds, until you have small pieces of dried fruit.
Stir this into the oats, until all ingredients are evenly combined and allow to cool slightly.
Line a baking tray with some parchment paper.
Form your mixture into 10 oval shape biscuits, place them on the baking sheet and then flatten them down with the back of a spoon.
Place in the oven and bake for approx 15-20mins. Biscuits will be slightly golden.
Allow to cool on a wire rack and watch these go fast .
These will last a few days in a airtight container or biscuit tin.
