They’re sweet and crunchy, just like it says in the name. They’re not just great for home, but wrap them up this holiday season and they make a great gift.

The best part of this recipe other than the taste and crunch, is that you probably have all of these ingredients at home already. The oats and coconut add to the crumbly crunch of these cookies. Honey and brown sugar adds to the gold colour and delicious sweetness. As Halloween is also here, you can easily decorate these beauties with some icing sugar and other spooky decorations and surprise your guests. These Golden Oat Crunchies are perfect for tea-time or as a holiday gift.
