Simple & easy party treat idea!


©copyright2013owpp

This is the most simple, fast and decorative party snack. All you have to do is melt on a VERY LOW fire, some naturally sweetened chocolate or the regular for those who take sugar with a spoon of oil (the one of your choice) stir all along and once all melted, take off the fire and dip the washed strawberry in, put on a tray and after two minutes literally, store in the fridge and you are done!
If the chocolate hardens while you are working, put it back on the most extremely low fire you can till all melts again, take off fire and continue dipping.
You could use a Bain-Marie to melt it but it’ll then take a bit longer. Oh! Last thing… I felt more comfortable dipping the larger part of the strawberry as I had more grip (my two fingers! Well washed obviously 🙂 )on the pointy side but the first two or three were trials and far from perfect.
I’m sure a lot of you know this trick but I had not thought about it until someone close gave me the idea. I thought it was brilliant and wanted to share it with you, hoping it might help someone out there like me 🙂
Let me know if I am right and the best of luck!

Monte Carlo ” adapted ” easy biscuit recipe 100% natural!

Hi everyone!

This recipe is, as the tittle specifies, adapted.
Meaning, I transfer it to my ” natural-sugar-language ” which is quite intricate, to say the least 🙂
It needs a lot of perseverance, stubbornness and space for trial and error.
It took me three batches to get to it, but some prefer the first, which had the disadvantage of loosing
it’s shape in the oven ( the pyramid fell but it was crunchier ) so, I’ll give you the two recipes.

P.S There’s no coconut in, for the coconut sensitive, no margarine or butter only oil which does less,
long term damage. I got good feedback from my family but let me know, your comments are important!

This is the first batch recipe, it is crunchier but flat.
The recipe has just a slight difference in the quantities,
nevertheless, it has own specific distinction.

Two celebrations in one day / Inauguration!/Granola bar 100% Natural recipe


©copyright2013owpp

©copyright2013owpp

I’d like to inaugurate my new category with a first recipe!
” Natural recipes ” will contain anything from natural granola bars to self-made
natural cosmetics. The idea came up, today, when my kids demanded our classical
granola recipe. It was so easy and the ingredient so simple…

Those recipes come naturally to me because I’m so familiar with them so, why not give
some pleasure to those around by posting it?
When I say natural, I mean totally clean and free from, coloring, sugar, margarine…
So, I hope you’ll enjoy this new project of mine and let me know if you ventured
into the realization of those recipes.

I’ll introduce you now to the famous granola recipe.

—————

1.   3 cups of rolled oats ( whichever size you have stick to the same cup throughout the recipe )

3.   1 cup roasted or raw sunflower seeds
4.   1/2 cup raw or roasted sesame seeds
5.   1/2 shredded coconut
6.   1/4 cup of oil ( it can even be olive oil, I use extra virgin and no one feels anything )
7.   1/2 cup apple juice unsweetened, ( it is available in all the stores everywhere I imagine )
8.   1 cup raisins
9.   2 cups rice syrup ( or golden syrup, honey, any natural sweetener you have )

All ingredients I use are usually organic.

Method

———-

Mix it well in a bowl, put in a flat oven tray with paper baking sheet on  ( 2 cm deep = 0.78  inch, 30 cm wide = 11.08  inches, 40 cm long = 15.74 inches )  flatten it with the spoon and put in the oven for 30 minutes on 170 Degrees Celsius or 338 Degrees Fahrenheit ( without heating it beforehand ) after 30-40 mn ( 40 mn is crunchier, 30 mn might be too soft for some, try and see what is to your liking 🙂 ) take it out, cut carefully with sharp knife immediately or it’ll brake,
let it cool, it’ll harden as it loses its heat. My photos are made of a double recipe as I find it keeps very well in a plastic box.

Enjoy!
