Welcome to another edition of Feast & Ferret. Where my love of food and products meet.
A healthy treat for the kids after school and at the weekend, these cookies have no refined sugar and can easily be gluten free by using gluten free oats.
As someone who is still in shock at THAT Jamie Oliver documentary about the effects of sugar on our health, I tried out this recipe to see how cooking without refined sugar and flour would turn out. More importantly I wanted to know how it would go down with my kids.
These healthy and simple cookies from Honest Mum are DELICIOUS, like flapjacks in texture and are so sweet and yummy. I’m surprised at how delicious alternatives to refined sugar can be.
This recipe uses banana, honey and coconut oil to add sweetness and flavour. I baked mine substituting the raisins for roughly chopped medjool dates. I love medjool dates, they are so much softer than normal dates, I eat them like sweets.
The addition of the medjool dates made the biscuit slightly softer and sweeter, my son absolutely loves them.
Jon doesn’t like seeds so you could leave those out if you prefer. I loved how versatile it can be, the base recipe is so easy and you can add whatever you want.
How gorgeous is this plate? It belonged to my Grandma, every time I use it I think of her.
FERRET // BATISTE INSTANT HAIR REFRESH DRY SHAMPOO IN COCONUT AND EXOTIC TROPICAL
I used to wash my hair every day before I had kids, EVERY DAY people. Now I’m looking for time saving tips everywhere and my hair is not exception to this rule.
I spray this dry shampoo into my roots every other day to keep my wash and blow-dry going a little bit longer. Some people can make it to day three, but I don’t make it quite that long. Making every other day an express shower is an amazing time saver!
This is my newest flavour, coconut and exotic tropical. I love it and there are so many flavours to choose from! I’ve tried others and this is my favourite so far.
Have a great weekend!
