Yummy Oat Flour Cakes

Today Rowan and I made these mini loaf cakes using homemade oat flour. We had to use regular sugar as that’s all we have but I reduced the amount (I often do with cakes and they still bake and taste fine). 

They were lovely, springy and moist ❤ definitely a hit and will make them again. The texture was really nice and they didn’t have that grainy feel gluten free cakes often have. I may try the recipe as a large cake in future. We’re going to have the rest with custard tomorrow.

Gluten Free Vegan Crispy Bars

Today we tried out a recipe from Pinterest for homemade crispy bars. Jack really likes the bars from Tesco so was excited to have a go at making his own.

We used a mixture of half vegan milk chocolate and half dairy free dark chocolate. The recipe only needed two other ingredients: coconut oil and rice crispsy cereal.

Jack measured out the ingredients and mixed everything together once the chocolate was melted. After spreading out on a tray they only took a couple of hours to be set and ready to eat.

Today we went to Tesco and Jack chose a selection of food to donate to our local food bank.

He chose all the items, thinking about what he would miss or like if we weren’t able to go shopping and chose what we wanted. It cost just over £12 and he had a basket full.
