Our little fairy girl started pre school last week, we were well prepared for it, or at least I thought we were. I hadn’t quite bargained for the level of sadness our Cuddlemonster seemed to feel.
She had tasked him with looking after Ozzie her Kangaroo while she was in pre school and he took his role very seriously. I couldn’t see him so down all morning so in an effort to cheer him up I got him into the kitchen and ‘helped him’ make some cookies he could share with his sister when she came home.
1 tblsp Cacao Powder
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Cinnamon
75g Coconut Sugar
3 tblsp Honey
Preheat the oven to 180C and line a tray with baking parchment
Add the wholemeal spelt flour to a large bowl and then sift in the cacao, baking powder, ginger and cinnamon. Give them a little stir to combine (or if you’re 2 a very big stir!)
Add the coconut sugar, butter & honey to a saucepan and melt together over a low heat.
Pour the liquid into the flour mixture and stir it n. It will come together in a wet feeling dough, that’s fine.
Lightly flour your work surface, get the enthusiastic 2 year old to roll out the dough, before re rolling yourself!
When the dough is rolled out, let same 2 year old press out cookies and
throw lay them onto the baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, leave on the tray for a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack.
As soon as they’re cool the 2 year old must try one.
These could very easily be iced or coated in chocolate, adorned with faces, outfits etc….or just eaten.
