This is a quick and easy way to use up the cereal in your pantry that you’re sick of eating, no-one’s eating, or is getting a little stale. In this batch I used Kelloggs Sultana Bran Buds (which is the boys fave) and a cranberry granola mix which my husband and I were crazy over and now I can’t take another bite of!
Jewel cookies were my fave type of cookie when I was growing up from The Cookie Man! I couldn’t find a mixed packet of jewel type lollies – the closest I could find was mini red frogs, which is great- considering the red lollies always get eaten first anyway, right?!
This is made easy as it is a ‘chuck in all ingredients and mix’ type of recipe, which I am a HUGE fan of!!! These cookies are MELT IN YOUR MOUTH type cookies – sooo delicious, however with little toddler fingers, it is best to be eaten outside as melt in your mouth cookies = lots of crumbs!!! 🙂
You can use any type of jube/chewy like lolly in the middle – if you want everything homemade, you could also use my Jube Lollies on it too, which would be AMAZING!
Add all ingredients to the bowl.
Mix 15 seconds/Speed 4.
Roll teaspoon sized balls onto a lined baking tray.
Press a lolly into the centre of each ball of cookie dough.
The boys are IN LOVE with Goji Berries at the moment! I buy Goji Berries wherever and whenever I see them – which is very often! They are available from anywhere from Coles/Woolworths, Aldi, Costco, even the dried fruit and nut shop at the markets!
I thought that Goji Berries were the new fad food, however I didn’t realise this until recently – but I have been eating Goji Berries my whole life!! Goji Berries are also known as Wolfberries and are used in Chinese cooking, commonly as a base for chinese soups to sweeten it up!!
Goji Berries are a superfruit, which is a good source of Vitamin C and antioxidants (amongst other things)!
The boys have been snacking on these instead of sultanas (they aren’t as sweet as sultanas) and I have been topping my porridge with them, however I thought I would incorporate them in my baking too!
Add all ingredients to bowl.
Mix 20 seconds/Speed 4.
Spoon into muffin cases..
and top with extra Goji Berries and pepitas.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean
The boys loooooooooooooove these muffins!! They tastes like a bacon and cheese bread roll, but so much quicker and easier to make 😉 These muffins are just as amazing as the Vegemite and Cheese Muffins!!
I use the bacon style pieces (that you can get for pizzas) as I find they hold really well in muffins and bread rolls/scrolls. You can use your own grated cheese, but I always buy my cheese grated (my lazy self) with my favourite being the pizza blend – you get the best of everything – parmesan, tasty and mozzarella.
I also love these straight into silicon muffin tins as it gets crunchy around the bottom half of the muffin (as well as the muffin top) – whereas it sticks onto muffin cases if you use them and it kind of wastes that extra crunchiness.
Add flour, milk, butter, egg and veg stock paste into bowl.
I love vegemite, I love cheese. Despite making all these sweet goodies, I’m actually a savoury gal at heart, so these…I can eat by the truckloads!
You can spoon these into muffin cases, or directly into a greased muffin tray. Muffin cases are easier, but I find that the cheese sticks to the muffin case so prefer to put these directly into a greased muffin tray.
Add Parmesan cheese to bowl.
Blitz 10 seconds/Speed 10
Set aside 2 x tablespoons of cheese
Add flour, milk, butter, Vegemite and egg into the bowl.
Mix 15 seconds/Speed 5.
Spoon into a greased muffin tray…
… and sprinkle with set aside cheese.
Bake for 13 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
