Banana coconut cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, February 19, 2020, In : cookies 

Just two ingredients to make these delicious cookies. I like them very thin to produce a crispiness and caramelisation on the edges. You can go crazy with your extras and add your favourite flavourings.

Makes 12-16 

1 ripe banana
3/4 c desiccated coconut

1/4 c chocolate chips
pinch sea salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c chopped dried fruit

Preheat oven to 180C. Link a baking sheet with baking paper.

Mash the banana in a bowl and mix in coconut. Add your extras. Scoop out...

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, February 13, 2020, In : cookies

Lavender biscuits

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, February 13, 2020, In : cookies 

These biscuits are perfectly fine without icing, as our 7-year-old informed me, but I think the icing adds a zing, and lavender and lemon go well together. Being free of sugar and dairy, you can add a couple more to your lunchbox.

You'll need a tray that will fit into your freezer.

1 1/2 tbsp dried lavender flowers
165g flour of choice
1 tsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp coconut oil or butter, melted
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c honey
1 tsp stevia

1/2 c powder...
