I did some baking for a friend who's daughter is gluten & dairy free for a few weeks to work out some possible causes to a health issue. I made these simple honey joys, substituting the butter for olive oil. To be honest, the olive oil didn't hit the mark I was after but they worked and were fine, so if you want a gluten free/dairy free verstion I'd use copha as I had to pour some of the oil off once they had set. Aldi have gluten free cornflakes and many other gluten free products as well as a growing range of organic products, I love Aldi!
All you need to do is this:
Preheat oven to 150c
4 cups of cornflakes~I used gluten free ones but you can use normal of course
1/4 cup of caster sugar
3/4 cup butter or a substitute like copha or coconut oil
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp golden syrup
Line 12 capacity muffin tray with patty pans or use these ones like these pretty pink ones on a baking tray.
Heat all ingredients apart from the cornflakes in a saucepan until bubbly.
Put the cornflakes into a large bowl, and pour over the honey goodness and stir until all coated.
Place mix into patty pans. Some suggest this mixture fills 24 patty pans but I beg to differ. They must have small eaters in their family!
Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool.
I just adore these. Not just because they can be banged together in minutes but for the crunchy sweet goodness. I think next time I will add a pinch of salt to create a salty caramel type. How long since you had a Honey Joy? Give them a go!
