Easy Jewel Cookies

Jewel cookies were my fave type of ย 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!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

Goji Berry Coconut Muffins

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!

Ham and Cheese Muffins

The boys loooooooooooooove these muffins!! They tastes like a bacon and cheese bread roll, but so much quicker and easier to make ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 โ€“ you get the best of everything โ€“ 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) โ€“ whereas it sticks onto muffin cases if you use them and it kind of wastes that extra crunchiness.

Vegemite and Cheese Muffins

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.
