  1. Prepare your baking pan and grease it with cooking oil. The size of the baking sheet will depend on whether you want thin or thick crunchies. Thin crunchies bake the best.
  2. Using a microwave-safe bowl, mix the margarine, salt, brown sugar, and syrup and put it in the microwave to melt for up to 4 minutes then mix with baking soda.
  3. Using a large bowl, mix up all other ingredients - these include flour, oatmeal, spices, coconut and sliced almonds.
  4. Mix the butter mixture with the bowl of oatmeal and let them mix thoroughly for best oats crunchies.
  5. In your greased baking sheet, press all the mixture using a parchment paper for it to smoothen up.
  6. Bake for the first 10-15 minutes at 325 degrees, and then reduce heat to 300 degrees for the last 10 minutes until your snacks are golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and cut it in pieces while it is still warm and soft. Give it a few minutes and remove it from the baking pan.
  8. Put it on a newspaper of serviette to remove excess oil. Give it time to harden before you serve.
  9. If you are not ready to eat, you can store it for a week in an airtight container.
