Looking for an alternative to your afternoon biscuits with your cup of tea? Try this quick and cheap chocolate and oat cookie recipe!

So, I finally got back on track to do some baking over the weekend. For me creating healthy bakes while sipping a mug of coffee with the radio on is an hour of zen. And of course, enjoying the results from baking is the cherry on top!

When I research healthy baking recipes I can be put off by the complex and sometimes expensive ingredient list. But I found the perfect recipe from the Natural Born Feeder as it’s simple and cheap to create. Not to mention, you probably would find most of these ingredients in your cupboard already (winning!). So without further ado…
