Peanut Butter granola balls

My husband loves peanut butter! This will be a great treat for him, thank!

The Baking Laboratory


So I made these as a slightly healthier snack food. Not only are they small (so that I can’t overdose on naughty food) but they are also full of oats, rice bubbles and chia to keep you nice and full.

These are the easiest things in the world to make. You literally mix it all together and roll them into balls.

The recipe I used is from the blog below

I doubled the recipe to make roughly 60 so that I could freeze some and as my boyfriends mum is going away to Argentina I thought she could take these on the plane as a little snack.

The recipe is:

500 grams peanut butter

1 1/3 cup honey

2 cups choc chips (chopped slightly)

1 cup black chia

4 cups oats

2 cups rice bubbles

4 tsp vanilla essence.

As I said before, put it all into a bowl…

Christmas tree cupcakes

This is so cute would love to try these for Sunday school kids!

The Baking Laboratory


So I’ve been wanting to bake cupcakes in terracotta pots for ages and since Christmas is just around the corner, I thought what better way to make use of these pots for Christmas trees.
They still require a bit of hard work but they are lots of fun to make.

I bought 4 cm terracotta pots from Masters for $0.46 or so (pretty cheap!)

You need to ensure you thoroughly clean the pots before you use them though. I scrubbed them several times in hot soapy water.

I put mini patty cases in each of the pots and filled the patty cases with the cake batter. The cake only needed to bake for 15 minutes due to the tiny size!

Once the cakes were done, I let them cool on the wire racks and made the little bows. Initially I  was going to tie a ribbon around the whole pot…

Cookie for one!

This a great way to feed that sweet craving, thanks!

Good Habits and Guilty Pleasures

I definitely have the biggest sweet tooth of anyone I know and it only gets worse later on in the day. Usually by 8pm I’m craving chocolate, candy, or any form of sugar I can find! I got tired of making a batch or cookies or a whole cake because I just ate the whole thing… Seriously… So I adapted this recipe from the vegan chocolate chip cookies on my blog to make a quick treat that’s totally vegan an effortless. Not to mention, Delicious and completely satisfying!

oatmeal choco quick cookies:
1 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp almond milk
Pinch of baking powder
1/2 cup oats (quick oats or old fashion)
1 tspn chocolate chips
1 tspn dried cranberries

Mix peanut butter, almond milk, and baking powder until smooth. Add oats and any additions. Mix well then plop on a baking sheet and form into a cookie. Bake…

Santa’s MallowPuff Reindeer

I have to make these for husbands Sunday school class!

Each year my little boy’s classmates write out Christmas cards for all their friends. A week or so ago I asked him if he wanted to reciprocate and after thinking for a while, his comment was: “Not this year, but let’s make something”. Oki doki, now I’m always up for that so we began looking through recipe books and magazines to find something simple yet “Christmassy”. And no, I wasn’t interested in cupcakes!

Santa's MallowPuff Reindeer

Our local supermarket has a monthly foodie magazine that I buy occasionally, depending on what they have on the cover and whether it catches my interest or not. This month, their December edition has some sort of berry log on it, but what really made up my mind was these gorgeous little MallowPuff Reindeer which ticked all the boxes. Now for those of you that don’t know what a MallowPuff is, it is a dome shaped biscuit…
