Chocolate Almond Crunchies

Happy New Year everyone! Found some time yesterday to bake a newly discovered recipe from Jo's Deli. Easy recipe and the taste.... Super Yummy!

Chocolate Almond Crunchies

50g dark chocolate, chopped into small chunks

40g whole almonds, toasted & chopped into small chunks

110g butter

80g brown sugar

1/2 tsp golden syrup

110g cake flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt

120g rolled oats


  1. Preheat oven at 170C. Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  2. Melt butter, sugar & golden syrup in a bowl, over a saucepan filled with water.
  3. Sift flour, baking powder & salt into mixing bowl. Add oats & half of chocolates & almond chunks. Blend everything well.
  4. Pour melted butter mixture into mixing bowl. Use a wooden spoon, stir & mix everything together. Add few drops of water if mixture seems dry.
  5. Form dough into ball & press gently to flatten it. Scatter remaining chocolates & almond chunks on top of biscuits, press a little.
  6. Bake crunchies, middle shelf for 15-20 mins.
  7. When cooked leave crunchies to cool on the baking tray for 10 mins before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
