Helen,

I have just taken a batch of these out of the oven. You really are the biscuit Queen, they are super delicious !

Thank you for the recipe.

I like this recipe also but have not baked with coconut or rolled oats for a long time obviously.I want to bake these this weekend and have just checked my pantry and the date stamp on the rolled oats is 26/01/17.The date stamp on my coconut is 09/12 16.Should I discard them and buy fresh or could I use them.They are unopened but I would happily buy fresh if it would affect the taste of these biscuits.

The rolled oats should be fine, and the coconut probably will be OK, but check that it is not getting a rancid smell and still has a fresh white coconut colour.
Regards,
Dawn.

Thanks Dawn. I am now erring on the side of discard and buy fresh.The recipe has thumbs up from Beverley as I thought it would so it should deserve fresher ingredients.Once I have them,I am set up for another batch etc.Thanks again must clear out my pantry.

I had my eye on that recipe as soon as I saw it. They look so simple and delicious.
I agree that the oats should be fine but coconut can deteriorate faster, probably because of the oil in it.
No lunch boxes here to fill but they would soon disappear.

I keep my coconut in a glass container in the fridge, if that's any help for future purchases.....

Right on, Marylew, even a hint of rancid coconut would spoil these gems. I think the pulsing of the Oats is what makes this recipe so special.

Thanks for the tip about keeping coconut in a glass jar in the fridge, J1 , makes a lot of sense !

I keep coconut in the freezer. Works a treat.

Thanks, Chris, another option when room in the fridge is limited.

Cheers,

I agree that these coconut storing tips are very helpful.I have passed them on to one of my daughters who disliked a slice she baked because the coconut on top tasted unusual.The little tips you get from this forum can be priceless.I am off to buy coconut today and it will be stored properly this time.
