How to make perfect crunchies

  1. Preheat your oven to the correct temperature before adding your oatcrunchies. This will help them to cook evenly and prevent burning.
  2. Use a light hand when mixing the dry and hot ingredients together. Overmixing can make the oat crunchies tough instead of crispy.
  3. Allow the oat crunchies to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. This will help them stay crisp for longer.
  4. Use rolled oats (old-fashioned oats) for the best texture. Quick oats will work in a pinch, but they’ll be less crispy.
  5. Don’t skimp on the fat! You need a good amount of melted butter or oil to get a nicely crisp surface.

Adding a twist: variations

For a little change, try adding on e of these to the batter:

  • Dried fruit
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Chocolate chips
  • Peanut butter
  • Sprinkles

Storing your crunchies

One of the best ways to store oat oven crunchies is in a food container. This will keep the cookie from going stale and will also prevent them from absorbing any moisture or odors from the surrounding environment.

Try wrapping them in wax paper or foil and be sure to wrap the crunchies tightly so that no air can get in and cause them to stale. Glass or plastic containers with tight fitting lids work well for this purpose.

If you are going to be storing the crunchies for an extended period of time, it is a good idea to place them in the freezer.
