Milo Dog Cookies

These dog cookies are for human consumption (not canine consumption πŸ˜‰ ) to celebrate this year’s Chinese New Year – Year of the Dog!

Despite being Chinese/Malaysian, I don’t make rice or do much Chinese cooking (I leave that to my mum!) but I thought I would make some cookies in celebration of the Year of the Dog with the help of my 3 year old half Asian twin boys to teach them a little bit about their Chinese heritage.

These are perfect for the Year of the Dog celebrations, but would also be really cute in lunchboxes or for a kids party! This is a variation of my Milo Cookies.

Lactation Cookies

This is a delicious recipe for lactation cookies which can be easily modified to change up the flavours (as the one type of cookie tends to get boring after a while!!). This will be my last recipe before giving birth to twins #2 as I prepare for their arrival! The key ingredients for lactation cookies are brewers yeast, flaxseed and oats which helps with the production of breastmilk. The are packed with goodness so these cookies are also great to satisfy the constant breastfeeding tummy rumbles! You also don’t need to be breastfeeding to benefit from these cookies – the whole family can eat them!

Add butter, white sugar and brown sugar to bowl.

Melt 3 minutes/60 degrees/Speed 2.

Add brewers yeast, flaxseed meal, self raising flour, oats, chocolate chips, vanilla, egg and salt.

15 Second Breakfast Biscuits

This is my take on the Belvita/Weetbix Breakfast Biscuits that have been very popular lately! I keep a box at my desk at work just in case I’m not organised enough in the morning (otherwise my breakfast would be a coffee only diet) – so this will definitely be replacing the store bought stuff!!!! This is great for breakfast or to snack on during the day!

These are nut free, egg free and dairy free which is handy for lunchboxes!!

Melt-in-your-mouth Oaty Date Cookies

The name says it all. These are healthy cookies which are firm to touch, then just melt in your mouth once you bite into them!

These cookies have NO sugar (say whaat!?) and are deliciously sweetened by pitted dates. TheseΒ Melt-in-your-mouth Oaty Date CookiesΒ (not so) dangerously addictive!!

The texture is kind of in between a melting moment and a digestive biscuit – so it is crumbly, melts in your mouth, with a light crunchy texture from the oats and walnuts – and also a little bit of chewiness from the dates.

These are really easy to roll into balls, so is a great one to get the kids to help with!
