How do we feel about a regular "Foodie Friday" feature?!

I'm not talking weekly… or maybe if I got my life together it could be… but just a little regular food related post. Perhaps a recipe, a review or something… I'm thinking out loud here.

Lets give it a whirl, and kick it off this week with a little recipe of my own. This one is so quick and easy that me and Frank made them this morning - at 7.30am before work! They are sugar free (I have used honey and lemon to sweeten) and still taste so good that even I love them (I *may* have sampled one or two with my morning cuppa whilst sat doing my accreditations for work)

I've used American style measurements as I find them a lot quicker to use - and easier to keep track of when you’re just making things up as you go along!!

Ingredients -

  • 1.5 cup oats

  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut

  • 1.5tsp baking powder

  • 4 tbsp plain flour

  • 40g butter, melted

  • 1 egg

  • 3 tbsp honey

  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon

  • Couple of handfuls of raisins/ sultanas

Method -

  • Line a couple of baking trays with greaseproof paper

  • Preheat the oven to 180 (fan)

  • Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl (apart from dried fruit)

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients

  • Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.

  • Once combined (f your mixture is a little wet you can add extra oats/ coconut/ flour to thicken as needed) stir through the raisins

  • Using about a tablespoon of your mix, roll into a ball then press gently onto your baking tray to flatten

  • Bake for 10 - 12 mins

  • Leave to cool

  • Devour

I'd love to know if you have a go at them and what you think!

Have a lovely weekend all
