So i came up with this delicious cookie, it really is great and by great i mean be careful you may just eat every cookie great.

Gluten free Raisin & Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

When they were done i had my wee boy try one before i did. He took his first bite and i was asking him if they were good, the only reply i got was a yum num num num num as he walked away.  Then i tried one and yea i agreed with him, they were pretty good. This will become a favorite for us now and i cant wait to try them with white chocolate chips and craisins.

Who remembers Curly Wurly Bars? I remember going down to the shop just to get a Curly Wurly. 

Gluten Free Curly Wurly Fudge

A curly Wurly is a chewy caramel ladder, draped in delicious milk chocolate and the best thing is they are gluten free. Yay, us celiacs get to eat that yummy twirly goodness.

Curly Wurly Fudge

In this recipe i have used a 2 ingredient chocolate fudge recipe that i have seen all over the internet that only requires chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. I know right, that sounds fool proof, well your right anyone could make this fudge and it is worth it. Its so creamy and chocolaty.

Chocolate Curly Wurly Fudge

When the fudge was made i just tossed over chopped Curly Wurly bars.

Its so good and a great wee treat for the kids, it would also be great during the Christmas holidays or for a dinosaur themed birthday party as i thought it looked kinda like dinosaur bones through the fudge.

Gluten Free Curly Wurly Fudge


Ingredients:
Method:
Line a brownie dish with some foil. You can spray it with cooking spray too but i managed without it.

Chop up your Curly Wurlys using a sharp knife. Make make chunks or small chunks watever you prefair.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, stir chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk together and microwave in 30 second increments until smooth and completely melted. 
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan spreading it out evenly.
Press the Curly Wurlys over the top. Bring to room temperature before refrigerating. Once it's solid, remove from the pan using the foil and cut into squares.

Kids really need their fruit and vegetables to keep healthy and to keep their growth at the right pace.

Gluten free Carrot Spice Cake

One vegetable my son loves is his carrots. I swear by them. They are a great vegetable as they are full of vitamin A that kids always need.

Gluten free Carrot Spice Cake

Here’s a few benefits of the carrot
  • Carrots really do help kids see in the dark, they also ease asthma and boost immunity.
  • Carrots are full of vitamin A which is essential for growth.
  • The vitamin A is transformed into a pigment in the retina of the eye which is essential for vision in dim light.
  • Carrots may prevent asthma in children, especially in kids regularly surrounded by smokers.
  • Getting kids to eat carrots may boost immunity. Vitamin A keeps the skin and the cells that line the airways healthy.
