This recipe makes delicious, chewy centered chocolate chip cookies that R absolutely loved. They definitely satisfy the chocolate craving but have a few healthy goodies in them to counteract the naughty stuff…
- 2/3 cup flour
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips
- 2 tbs brown sugar
- Up to 2 tbs raw sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp veg oil
- 3 tbsp milk
- (optional) 1/4 cup LSA mix (ground linseeds, sunflower seeds & almonds)
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- Extra milk as needed
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Mix dry ingredients together and then add wet ingredients. Add spoonfuls of dough to greased or lined cookie sheets leaving space for the cookies to spread as they rise quite a bit. Bake for approximately 15 – 20 minutes or until lightly golden and the cookies are firm to the touch. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 min and then transfer to a wire rack. Avoid eating them all in one sitting and make sure they are stored out of your toddler’s reach (mine stole quite a few while I wasn’t looking). Enjoy!
So, I’m in the kitchen, as I type, making pikelets (mini-pancakes) for Ruby.
I’m the cook so I got to taste the first one, hot off the press so-to-speak and it was YUM!
Here is the recipe:
125g (1 cup) wholemeal plain (all-purpose) flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoons raw sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 tablespoon honey
170ml (2/3 cup) milk
Spray oil for greasing the pan
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar and stir to combine. Mash the banana in a separate bowl, add the egg and milk & honey and whisk. Add to the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Preferably add mixture to a squeezy bottle.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and spray lightly with oil. Squirt tablespoons of mixture into the pan and cook for about 2 minutes, until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn the pikelets over and cook for another 30 seconds.
These are really good for snacks on the go, Ruby loves them!
