Woke up this morning and thought hmmmmm pancakes. Googled American pancakes and threw these together with Nutella and golden syrup over the top. 

1) sieve 100g self raising flour into a bowl, add a dessert spoon of caster sugar and a dessert spoon of oats.

2) beat in 1 egg, pouring in small amounts of milk til the mix is a gloopy consistency.

3) wipe a frying pan with oil and heat, but not too hot. Ladle in the batter, and flip when little bubbles form all over.

Makes 4, serve with gooey sugary things!

When I was little my dad used to make the best ever pancakes. They’re big and thin and tasty. The recipe is also barely a recipe!

In a bowl whisk 1 cup milk, 1 egg and just under 1 cup of plain flour. The mixture should be quite liquidy. Butter a frying pan and put on a medium heat. Transfer the mixture a ladle at a time and flip once til golden.

Serve with Nutella, banana and syrup. Sod healthy pancakes today. Be naughty and enjoy it.

  
New Year’s Eve is probably not the best time to post a Christmassy recipe, but hey ho, you can enjoy this granola all year. It makes a great present in a hamper and is so easy it’s barely worth calling it a recipe.

1) melt 1 dessert spoon of butter and 1 dessert spoon of golden syrup in pan.

2) in a bowl mix 2 cups of oats, 1/2 cup of chopped nuts, 1 dessert spoon of chia seeds, 1 handful of chopped seeds. Sprinkle over 1 tsp ground ginger and 1 tsp cinnamon.

3) pour over the melted butter and golden syrup. Mix and lay out on a baking tray lined with baking parchment.

4) bake on 160 degrees C for 20 mins. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn.

Wait for it to cool and place in a Kilner jar – mine cost £6.99 for 3 in TK Maxx. Wilko also do a great set of smaller jars for £7/£8. 

  
Sorry for the awful picture – I only managed to get one after they’d been ravaged by my hockey team. These flapjacks are super easy, super tasty and healthy-ish.

1) in a pan melt 1 tsbp Nutella, 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp golden syrup.

2) mash 1 ripe banana into the mixture and then stir in 1 cup of oats. Add more if needed and stir til combined.

3) press into a lined baking tray and bake on 170 degrees C for 20 mins. 

4) leave to cool and chop. This made about 12 flapjacks. Or 6 big ones!

Just got in from hockey training and fancied a quick sweet treat. Popcorn is the easiest thing to make ever.

1) put a handful of corn kernels in a pan with a lid.

2) fire up a medium heat.

3) enjoy a popping good time.

4) add a sprinkle of salt and golden syrup.

Lick those sticky fingers!
