It’s jolly nice to know that somewhere in the world (far, far from these cold shores) oranges are now in season and being picked just for me to be able to have something colourful to photograph and tasty to eat…
After a bit of experimentation I’ve decided to record this recipe in case I
get knocked down by a bus win the lottery and don’t get to pass on its gorgeousness to the world.
I’m never organised enough during the week to do breakfast, so I snack at my desk when I get to work. A good quality (and tasty) bar now costs about £1 a hit and they’re a bit bleh, so I decided to make my own.
They are SO good and very adaptable. Ideas for this recipe were cobbled together from many sources but most resembles this recipe on the BBC Good Food website.
Makes 8 big bars (or 12 more petite ones)
*(I didn’t have this so whizzed up shredded coconut in blender (is that was desiccated means?) it was better though as the coconut was all different sizes)
**(I used Julian Graves Omega Seed Mix: sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and linseeds)
I have at last discovered my non-decaffeinated hot beverage of choice; mint tea. I tried the Twinnings one which was nice enough to pique my interest but a bit too toothpastey. This one by Pukka is much more rounded and ‘grown-up’ – maybe because it contains three different mints. OK, I may have bought it for the gorgeous packaging but I’m sticking with it for the taste…
