Hello strangers..Its been a while hasn’t it? I won’t bore you with my personal rubbish but it has been a challenging time and therefore I have made food for the kids and even photographed it but I’m not able to get it onto my blog. So finally here I am and it feels good to be back.
Wilfy is now nearly three, which I can’t believe. I have tried him on a little bit of sheep’s milk cheese but the eczema is creeping in on his tummy so I’ve pulled back on the experimentation. There is a need sometimes as a mother to be ‘like everyone else’. Play dates are much harder, parties even worse. How do you tell your child that he can’t have anything in his party bag? I was met with such a torrent of abuse after two parties this weekend that I relented and let him have the artificial delights on offer (don’t think my bags are any better). Consequently I have met smells today emanating from wilfys backside that I’m finding hard to describe.
So, surely this means today has to be a day of feeding well? Yes, healthy good chocolate and to me that comes in the amazing form of carob. No caffeine, sweet, delectable, rich and full of essential nutrients. Its is 8% protein and has vitamins A, B, B2, B3 and D. It is also high in calcium, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium and it also contains iron, manganese, barium, copper and nickel. It should be eaten in moderation. I get mine from Raw Living or amazon.
Today I made carob rice crispy cakes with wilfy. These kill an hour and you know with every lick of the bowl your child is being fed nourishing and wholesome goodness.
You will need –
2 generous tablespoons of coconut oil
3 generous tablespoons of carob powder
1 big squeeze of agave nectar or a tbs of coconut palm sugar
2 cups of rude health rice puffs or any plain rice puffs.
In a porringer or a bowl over a saucepan melt the oil and then add the powder and the agave. this should only take about 6 minutes to form a delicious chocolate sauce. Then let it cool slightly and add your rice puffs. They should be thickly coated. Then add them to little paper cases and put in the fridge to cool. Wilfy eats his straight away, devouring the bowl with his little fingers.
ENJOY AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!
