- 1 cup plain wholemeal flour (sifted, with the husks added back in)
- 1 cup rolled oats (2 cups if not using coconut, see Note)
- 125g butter or Nuttelex (or 1/2 cup sunflower oil)
- 2 tablespoons Golden Syrup or Barley Malt Syrup (See Note)
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup brown sugar (to taste)
- 2 tablespoons boiling water
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 1 cup fresh grated coconut (Refer to recipe link in Note)
Low/Moderate Salicylates, Low/Moderate Amines, Low Glutamates
Barley malt syrup isn't in the RPAH Elimination Diet handbook, but I suspect it contains amines, as it is made using a process that feeds into making malt vinegar, which is moderate in amines. If you're able to have amines, this may be worth trying as a challenge. If you are going to try it, use the Spiral Foods Organic Barley Malt; Ceres Organic also has it, but it contains lemon juice. Use Golden Syrup as a substitute, but you may like to add a bit more sugar as it is not as sweet.
Coconuts contain moderate amines and salicylates. If you can't use coconut just substitute for extra rolled oats. Refer here for making fresh grated coconut.
