Having a mum who loves to bake is the best and worst thing that could have happened to me. I love baking with her, from brownies to cupcakes to anything really. She really loves following what she calls ‘proper recipes’ to get the perfect results, and i must say she makes delicious desert. But, here’s why it’s also the worst thing, when you have red velvet cupcakes sitting in front of you for a week and then Banoffee pie sitting in the fridge waiting for you to scoff it down and then victoria sponge cupcakes the week after. that’s when it gets a bit out of hand and i really had to work on my self control this past month. I actually did not try any of them and instead made my own recipes to satisfy my craving.

Oats, Peanut butter and Raisins are my absolute favorite healthy substitutes. i can literally mix them randomly and come up with a new recipe that i fall in love with every week.

here’s what i made last night instead of revising for my physics exam.

(sorry but i got tired after 7 chapters, i needed something to energize me)

1 cup of quaker oats (processed into powder)

1 tablespoon of peanut butter (or a bit more if you like)

1 egg

chocolate chips*

milk/almond milk

*you can use raisins instead of the chocolate chips, but i used dark chocolate. it’d been so long since i’d tasted chocolate i actually forgot how good it was. it was my ‘treat of the week’ 

just mix everything together, put in a non-stick pan (you can use an ice-cream scooper to get the same size for each cookie)

and place in oven (190 Celsius) for around 20 minutes.

And they’re ready! 😀
