Grandma Lugt's Crunchies

Dry Mix:
159 g coconut
200g buckwheat flakes or rolled oats (use buckwheat for gluten-free)
250 g gluten free flour mix (or rice flour)
300 g of honey or xylitol (I use 150 g of each)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup of mixed seeds or any seeds.
Mix all these together in a big bowl.

Wet mix:
In a pot on the stove melt
200g of gie or coconut oil
2 Tbsp of honey
When melted add 1tsp of bicarb to the mix and 2Tbs water.

Mix the wet and dry together.
Press into a flat baking tray that has been greased with coconut oil.
Bake for 45 minutes at 150 degrees. Take out , cut into squares and put the inside squares on the outside and vice versa. (The outstide ones cook faster) Then bake for another 10 minutes.
Cool on a rack and enjoy.
