Brownie Baked Oats, with a hint of coconut
- 80g oats
- 160ml coconut cream
- 110ml milk
- 10g cocoa powder
- 15g desiccated coconut
- splash coconut extract
- tsp coconut butter
- 20g sweet freedom
At Izzy's request, we topped ours with a vanilla Alpro yoghurt/pudding, and I also put some more desiccated coconut on mine...
This was so delicious - it tasted like chocolate sponge pudding with custard...
The magical powers of breakfast worked too as the rain stopped mid-morning, yey!
Lunch was quite light as we were going out for food at 3pm, so I just ate some more things that needed using before we go away - 3 oatcakes, a tiny bit of Brie, some creme de St Agur and a nectarine...
Random, but really tasty! The nectarine was perfectly ripe so I had another one later this afternoon, I love summer fruits!
As I said, mid-afternoon we were going out for food. Today is my Grandma's birthday (and my sister-in-law....happy birthday both of you!) so we met her for cream tea. No actual photos as I didn't think my Grandma would like me getting the camera out (indeed, she had a go at me for using my phone to take photos hence only one!!) but the scones were delicious nonetheless...
My Grandma wanted me to ask the question, so... jam before clotted cream, or clotted cream before jam?? As you can see, I put the jam on first, but Liam thinks it is more logical to put the clotted cream first (he only eats the clotted cream, no jam, so doesn't bring practical experience to the question!!)
Once we got back from seeing my Grandma, we spent the rest of the afternoon packing. My Mum offered to have both children at her house for an hour (yey, she usually only has Izzy!) so Liam and I were able to get lots done while they were out, and then Izzy packed her own suitcase when she got back...
She was so cute, folding everything neatly and constantly sighing and wiping her forehead as if it was really hard work!!
Going on holiday with the children is so different from going on holiday on our own - most of the car's boot will be filled with Toby's huge pushchair, and then we need to take his travel cot, plus all of our clothes, food etc...I hope we fit everything in!!
No photos of dinner as we haven't eaten yet - the children had leftover curried cauliflower burgers in sandwiches with ketchup (thanks for the suggestion Sarah!!) as we are off out this evening :) We're meeting my sister and her boyfriend again to see a local band play. But first Liam and I are heading to the food vans - our last chance to get some yummy festival food!! :)
