Never Too Late To Enjoy ANZAC Biscuits!!

So….this year I made a batch of traditional ANZAC biscuits & a healthier batch with less sugar. Hubby loved the traditional – too sweet for me?!! But he didn’t mind there healthier version either…shows where his taste-buds are?!!

Yumm!!

Here’s the basic recipe…you can adjust the flours as you wish, add nuts/seeds if you like, but I thought they were pretty tasty as they were!! And I’m sure your household will love them too….just don’t trial out the alternatives side by side!!!  LOL

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup dried dates (I like to soak in water to ease chopping)
  • ½ cup coconut flour (or 1 cup plain flour if wish)
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup oats – gluten free
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil (or butter)
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C & line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a food processor place the dates & coconut flour (or plain), whiz until the dates are very finely chopped into a crumble.
  3. Add the desiccated coconut, oats, baking powder & salt & mix through.
  4. Add the coconut oil (or butter) & honey, combine all the ingredients.
  5. Heap the mixture onto a teaspoon & roll into balls, place the balls onto the tray. Using the back of a wet fork, press the balls into biscuits.
  6. Place in the oven & bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven & allow to cool & harden.

A Year in Reflection….

How has ‘Your Year’ been???

Were you true to Yourself….& followed the paths you chose as best as You could…even if things didn’t go completely as planned???

Somehow I managed to achieve most that I hoped for…there were some challenges professionally & personally – but hey, I had to keep pushing through. Not saying all is ‘perfect’…just content with where I’m at.  And that’s all that’s important – as long as you’re happy with all that You do. Don’t worry about what others think of your choices.

We all have different circumstances & at stages in life. We set our own goals; have desires & wishes…but the one thing I feel is important, is that we move – & not get ‘stuck’ somewhere waiting for it all to come to us. ‘Cause babe….that ain’t gonna happen.

Only YOU can set your mind to be all you wish…only YOU can ‘turn it up a gear’ – no matter what ‘that’ is for YOU. There are often curve balls thrown in our way for good measure in life, in some shape or form…it’s how YOU deal with those that matters.

I hope You can reflect back on ‘Your’ 2017 & pat yourself on the back & smile….Yes I did it!

Life is a roller coaster….how do YOU ride it?!!

Roll on 2018 I say…I’m ready for ya!  😉

One of My Favourite Christmas Treats….

Shortbread has been part of my Christmas tradition since I was a child. My sister & I used to make it with my mum for Christmas & give to family as gifts. As an adult I continued the tradition & enjoy making it listening to Christmas Carols….my husband is sad he only gets to enjoy it once a year – unfortunate for him?!!

I normally do the traditional version…only real butter, sugar, rice & plain flour. This year I’m going to do a mix to include gluten-free for a friend….here’s the recipe for everyone to enjoy!!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4C Cornflour (check the ingredients – should be just corn, cheaper versions may not be)
  • 1C Rice flour
  • 1/2C Castor sugar
  • 175g butter, softened (extra for greasing tray)

Methods:

  1. Preheat oven to 150ºC
  2. Sift cornmeal & rice flour & sugar together into medium bowl.
  3. Add the butter & work into the dry ingredients till it forms a soft dough. Refrigerate for an hour.
  4. Cover baking tray with greased baking paper.
  5. Roll out & shape dough into 3cm cookies on greased paper, with 4cm gap between each. Flatten with a fork. Makes about 20 cookies.
  6. Bake for 20-25mins, or until edges are lightly golden.
  7. Let them cool, then you can wrap in paper for Christmas gifts or enjoy fresh out of the oven.  🙂

Healthy Festive Tips….

With lots of parties with family & friends in the next couple of weeks….we ALL overindulged this time of year. Trying to keep some BALANCE is the key.

  • Firstly…be kind to yourself…& those around you. It’s good for your mind & soul.
  • Yes…you probably will indulge, but try to eat/drink the healthy stuff as much as possible. Enjoy plenty of healthy salads & veggies to go with festive foods.
  • Water…it IS your friend. Especially up here…drink it up!!!
  • Get out & about…go for a walk early morning to beat the heat, or at night to check out the Christmas lights.
  • Find some time out just for you…it helps you to ground your feelings & settle the mind…it can be an emotional time of year.
  • Smile when you greet people…even when you’re on the phone – they can ‘hear’ your smile!  🙂

Remember….things can be difficult for some this time of year…talk to those around you when needed – look out & support each other. There’s added pressure during the Festive season which some experience…here’s some extra tips to get you through. XO

Lifeline is also there for those in need 13 11 14

I wish you a Merry Christmas & an amazing New Year!!

Stay safe & have FUN!!!
