Cooking with Mini Divas: Chocolate and peanut butter flapjacks
This morning I had two little ones at home, my lovely Thursday morning with them.
Mia is a little under the weather, so rather than going out to play we stayed home and cooked.
I rifled through the cupboard and made up as we went along; we needed something, quick, easy and fun. At this age (two and a half), there is around 20 minutes of mixing time as the limit before fighting ensues....
S,o this is what we did:
Divas choc and peanut butter flapjacks
2 cups of porridge oats
1 cup of cocoa (we used finely grated choc left over from Auntie Emily's hot choc at Xmas)
1 teaspoon bicarb of soda
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
1 cup raisins
1 cup sugar
Ok, so this isn't healthy but it's fun - mix together the oats, cocoa, bicarb and raisins. Melt the butter and peanut butter together, pour over the oats and stir in.
Press into a greased tin and bake for 20 mins at 160 degrees.
Eat and smear onto faces. Wipe off. Repeat.
