my life 01.08.12

Can you believe that it's August already? It's the best month by far (the end of Winter and my birthday. 'Nuff said).

my food: So I made these cookies for Noah this week and keep getting asked for the recipe. They are super-healthy (wheat and dairy free, naturally sweetened and packed full of goodness) and they taste good too (bonus!) so it's only fair that I share it with you - it's adapted from a Jude Blereau recipe in Wholefood. I've made it before as a slice instead of cookies which works just as well if you feel that way inclined.

Oat Cookies
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup oatmeal (it sticks to the wet ingredients and helps to bind it all together)
1/2 cup sultanas
1/2 cup goji berries
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots or dried figs
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup dessicated coconut
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 - 3/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/2 - 3/4 cup honey or maple syrup
2 eggs

Simply mix all of the dry ingredients together then add the wet ingredients (adding more oil or honey if you think it needs help to stick together). Stir well before shaping into cookies and baking at 180 C for around 10 mins.

my fashion: The combination of dressing for pregnancy and a ridiculously chilly winter (it feels way colder than usual, am I right?) means that I'm not exactly excited when it comes to fashion these days. So to lift the spirits I'm focusing my attention on accessories and online shopping.

I love you both already. I just know we will all be so happy together in the warmer months.

my family : Meanwhile this week I am eagerly awaiting the birth of my niece! She is officially due tomorrow but I have been sitting by the phone for the past few days just in case she couldn't wait any longer to meet her favourite Aunty. Newborn cuddles are on the horizon and just the thought of it makes me giddy. Good Luck EJ! 


  1. Hello favourite aunty-to-be...

    I made the cookies last night while our little girl continued her journey...

    They'll serve a tasty and healthy snack over the next few days :)
