This Chocolate Chip Oat Bar Slice Is Perfect For Busy Parents

My eldest son has just started his first year at our local school. In the lead up, we organised lots of things – uniform, school shoes, bag and his lunchbox.

He had a few requirements when it came to choosing his lunchbox. First, it had to be blue. Secondly, it had to have a drink bottle. And third, it had to have lots of compartments. We found a suitable one at a local department store. It was perfect – especially as one of his friends had the same lunchbox.

Every morning, he likes to inspect his lunchbox before he heads off to school – just to see what treats I have included for the day’s breaks.

This chocolate chip oat bar slice is a perfect lunchbox treat. The oats contain a slow releasing energy which means they will keep you feeling fuller for longer. They are also perfect for busy parents, because they are simply a one bowl slice which takes no time to mix together. You gotta love that!

This White Chocolate and Coconut Truffles Recipe Is Super-EASY

Christmas is coming… The decorations and Christmas trees have been in the shopping centres for months now.

My two sons are getting increasingly more excited. Yesterday we put the Christmas Tree up – exciting times for a 4 year old and a 2 year old. 🙂 They also opened the first drawer on our Advent Calendar.
For me, Christmas is also a time  for catching up with family and friends – and to make lots of sweet treats to share with them. What’s not to love about the combination of coconut and white chocolate? This truffles recipe is very easy to make – you’ll be sure to impress with them. Don’t leave out the lemon rind – it really ties the flavours in nicely.

These Coconut Biscuits Won’t Last Long Anywhere

It’s always good to have an easy, failsafe biscuit recipe. One you can turn to in a hurry, or when you just need to unwind and bake your heart out.

These coconut biscuits are delicious. Crispy around the edge, and slightly chewy in the centre – they are definitely very moreish. You won’t be able to stop at one when they’re fresh out of the oven. And I know from experience that they won’t last long with kids (or husbands) around!

Coconut and Raspberry Slice Recipe

This Coconut and Raspberry Slice is a Favourite

Sweet treats are never far away in our house. If I don’t have a homemade goodie on the kitchen bench, then there’s usually one baking in the oven.

This easy slice recipe uses two of my favourite items: Berries and Coconut. They really are a classic pairing in a cake slice. If you don’t have raspberries on hand, feel free to substitute them with other berries – strawberries or blueberries would taste just as great.
