So yes… As the winter chill creeps ever closer, so my insatiable cravings for all things super sugary sweet start.
When the sky is filled with dark fluffy winter clouds holding promise of rain, I always feel the urge to grab the nearest thing containing sugary bliss to warm my senses.
Since this morning I have had an endless craving for some warm cinnamon pancakes… Mmmm, yum yum. To go along with it some cookies. In my search for cookies “healthy-but-oh-so-yummy” I came across the old favorite; golden oats cookies with the possibility of endless flavors as you can add whatever you want to them. BIG smile… Yip that’s definitely a winner in my book.
So after picking the girls up at school, we quickly popped in at the shop and bought a few “add-ins” consisting of bananas, chocolate with whole nuts and apples. I wanted to keep it somewhat healthy so seemed like a responsible enough shopping list.
After I got home I immediately started making a batch scanning over my freshly googled recipe. Reading the part where I was supposed to melt the butter,sugar and syrup together I realized I had already added the sugar to the oats… But oh well, carrying on I whipped (such a chef like word 😉 ) up a batch and then proceeded to divide it and add some apples with cinnamon, chocolate and banana in the three separate batches.
Wha-la, into the oven and 15 min later I had some oh-so-delicious cookies. My earlier error in forgetting to melt the sugar, resulted in it bubbling ever so slightly out and caramelizing… Like sweet sugary brittle here and there on the cookies. YUM!
Supper did of course consist of delicious pancakes with a savory filling followed by pancakes filled with cinnamon sugar gloriousness. Big smile…
In these sugary moments I briefly forget my intolerance to Winter 🙂
