Mars Bar Flapjacks

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve had a great day. I made this recipe because we had quite a few Mars bars in the house as it’s everyone’s least favourite chocolate bar. I decided on flapjacks because of the sweet ingredients from the syrup and sugar and I thought the Mars bar would be a great alternative. So… the end result was okay, the flapjacks stuck together and looked good however, there was a slight malt-nougat taste that I didn’t really like. Anyway, the good thing about this recipe is that there are only 3 ingredients and it takes very little time to make.

Recipe: Mars Bar Flapjack (makes 9)

Ingredients

150g oats

80g butter

3 Mars bars – chopped

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line a oven tray with baking paper.
  • Pour the oats into a bowl and then separately melt the butter and chopped Mars bars in a pot ans stir.
  • Pour the mixture over the oats and combine everything together. Put into the tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

Tasty Oat Muffins

Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and making the most out of the lovely weather, if you are in the UK. I recently made some oaty muffins which I thought would be great as breakfast muffins because they are filling, healthy and tasty. Sometimes it can get quite repetitive eating cereal, toast or smoothies in the morning so its nice to have something different that still has the same breakfast element from the oats, egg, milk and cinnamon. This recipe was something I created and the outcome was really good, the only adjustment you might want to make would be adding a little more sugar if you have a sweet tooth but other than that it tastes pretty good.

Oaty Muffins (makes 6 large muffins)

Ingredients

100g plain flour

80g oats

65g soft brown sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon powder

1 egg

75ml milk

75ml oil

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and put 6 muffin cases on a baking tray.
  • In a bowl mix all of the dry ingredients together. Then in a separate bowl whisk all of the wet ingredients together then pour into the flour mixture stirring until everything is combined.
  • Evenly spoon the mixture into the cases and sprinkle some extra oats on top.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until golden and leave to cool completely before eating.

Peanut Butter & Oat Cookies

Hello everyone I hope you are all well. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Today’s recipe is probably one of the best cookies you’ll ever make (in my opinion). They are soft, sweet and chewy…. just perfect. I really liked these cookies because they contain peanut butter, which I love and also there is no flour in the recipe which makes a change. I’ve had this recipe written in my book for many years and I don’t actually remember where I got it from but finally I’ve made them. The recipe only makes 9 cookies so you may want to double it, however they are quite indulgent.

Peanut Butter and Oat Cookies (makes 9)

Ingredients

100g smooth/crunch peanut butter

100g soft brown sugar

1 egg

100g porridge oats

1 pinch of salt

1 tsp baking powder

30g chocolate chips

1 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with baking paper.
  • Put the peanut butter, sugar and egg into a bowl and mix together with a spoon.
  • Next, add all the other ingredients and mix well with a spoon until everything is combined (you might want to use your hands for this).
  • Then roll the mixture into 9 even balls and flatten down on the tray.
  • Bake them in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden but still soft and leave to cool on the tray.

Homemade Oat Facials

I have two recipes to use depending on your skin type, I’ve always been interested in natural homemade alternatives and these are both great.

1) Best for oily skin
2 tbsp crushed oats
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
Enough water to make a paste.
Mix together, apply to the face then wash off after 6 mins using warm water and pat dry.

2) Best for dry skin
2 tbsp crushed oats
1 tsp organic honey
Enough milk to make it runny.
Mix together, apply to the face, leave on for 10 mins then wash off using warm water and pat dry.

I would recommend to use at least twice a week for best results. After using these facials your face will feel free and refreshed because your skin has absorbed in all that goodness. Once you’ve washed off your face use a light oil such as almond oil to keep your skin soft and moisturized.

*You know it’s good for your skin if you can eat it too 🙂
