I try and see Sunday as my ‘day off’, though for a supposed day off it sure does tend to be a busy one with meals to prepare, ensuring uniforms are ready for Monday, washing and putting away the last of the weekends laundry. I do like to set aside an hour if I can though and catch up on some reading; and sometimes start drafting new blog posts.
Sunday is generally the one day I don’t really bake, unless it’s a loaf of bread for that days meals, Caoimhe had very different ideas today though. She hasn’t been very well this weekend, but feeling better this afternoon, she decided she’d like to bake something. Harry is also very out of sorts and stuck to me like glue so I couldn’t extract myself from his grasp to do something with her. So we agreed if she settled on a simple recipe, she could make it herself and I would step in to help is she really needed it.
She was very pleased with the results of her efforts and suggested they go on the blog, so I suggested SHE blog them, she’s delighted, so, over to you Caoimhe!
Hello! I’m Caoimhe and I am 10 😀
I really like baking. It’s a really creative thing to do and you can experiment by swapping ingredients and trying new flavours. I love making sweet things and my favourite things to bake are cupcakes and cookies. I chose the cookies I made today because they contain some of my favourite things, nut butter, bananas and coconut oil. Coconut oil has a lovely tropical flavour, I like that. These cookies don’t have any sugar in them either, that’s a really good thing, my Mam is trying to make sure we all cut down on sugar, she says it’s super bad for us.
I was really happy with these cookies, they are really tasty.
Thank you Caoimhe! I’m sure now you’ve dipped your toes we’ll see you here again, you did a great job x
The above photo of the recipe isn’t very clear so here it is again:
3 Large Ripe Bananas, mashed together
4 heaped tablespoons Almond Butter, 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil, 4 tablespoons Maple Syrup, mixed into the bananas.
180g Porridge Oats, mixed into the wet ingredients.
Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto a baking tray, flatten out and bake for 20 minutes on 200C/180C fan, cool on a wire rack.
