Day 2 was all about being kind. We fed the ducks and played generously with others at the play ground.
Day 3 was make biscuits and package them as presents.
Here is my easy biscuit recipe for stamping out shapes.
Easy vegan biscuits
150 grams vegan margarine
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 cups plain flour, plus extra for dusting bench and rolling
50 ml soy milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped
Mix all ingredients together. Wrap mix in cling wrap and fridge for 10 to 20 mins to firm up.
Lightly flour bench. Roll out mix to about 5mm thickness and stamp out shapes. Bake on baking paper lined traus for around 10 minutes. Cool completely before decorating.
360 gms icing mixture
3 tbsp soy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix together and colour as desired. Spread layer on biscuits and add and sugar decorations while icing is wet 🙂
When icing is completely set, wrap for gifts or store in an air tight container.
I was sceptical the first time the children and I made these together, but once we’d tasted the batter, smelt them cooking in the oven, then ate them warm we were convinced. These are super tasty and belong in a lunchbox. This recipe is based on Dreena Burton’s troll biscuit recipe. I’ve just simplified the recipe.
1/4 cup wholemeal self raising flour
1 cup rolled or quick oats
3 tbsp coconut sugar
Pinch sea salt
2 tbsp dairy free chocolate chips
1/4 to 1/3 cup sunflower seed butter
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup mashed ripe banana
2 tbsp maple syrup
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients
In a separate bowl combine wet ingredients , including mashing banana through mix
Add wet ingredients to dry and combine
Gently drop spoonfuls onto trays lined with baking paper
Bake until golden on top
Cool on tray for a few minutes then transfer to airing tray to cool completely.
These are a great activity with children.
Have a lovely week xx
