We all love our pets don’t we? Whether they’ve got four legs, two legs or new legs they all bring something special into our lives and we wouldn’t be without then. The toddlers currebt favourite film is ‘Pets’ (have you seen it? What did you think? I’ve been securely enjoying it too) and I have to say, there’s an annoying bit of dust that always gets in my eye during the end scene when all the humans return home & both they & their pets are so excited to see each other.
The pup had a sleep over with her bestie as we were visiting family & she doesn’t like the long drive. It’s always horrible leaving her but seeing how miserable she gets in the car, we know it’s better here where she can cause chaos. However, she does get spoiled when we get back (well every day if I’m honest!).
I’ve been working on a new recipe and wanted to try carrot biscuits. They turned out pretty well and I had a very severe taste-tester monitoring my every move!
- 1 cup of oats, blitzed
- 2 carrots, grated or blitzed
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup of cheese, grated or blitzed
- 1 egg
I like to keep my baking simple and quick, which these certainly were. I blitzed the oats while melting the coconut oil, then while I mixed the oats and oil together in a bowl, I blitzed the carrots. All the ingredients were put into the food processor for a quick whip round until they were all nicely mixed together. I have to say, the mixture smelled so yummy, I was tempted to lick the spoon!
I put a small amount of the mixture into my silicone cupcake tray, then added a slice of liver treat before covering it all up with more of the biscuit mixture. They were then put in the oven at 180 degrees C/ gas mark 4/350degrees F for approximately 20minutes. They were still fairly soft when they came out of the oven, but hardened up as they cooled.
