I'm afraid my camera cord has performed a disappereing act so there won't be photos for a while. However when I find it/buy another I'll edit the posts and add the photos. I've had a look over the house and the enitre family is now involved a manhunt to find said escapee - don't worry I have the equivelent of MI5 on my side.
Wish me luck!
In the mean time however:
Recently I've stumbled upon a lot of vegan and vegetarain blogs so I decided to try a few of the recipes out. These are an adaption of Chocolate Covered Katie's chocolate cookie dough babies. She's written and photographed a veriety of flavours and I have to say they're rather good. I found them very rich and could only manage two at breakfast today. Don't worry the rest weren't wasted, they made wonderful snacks throughout the day with no added sugar or anything un natural I'm giving them a sticky smile of approval!
80g pitted dates
30g cashews (I used almonds and cashews though you can use any nuts you like)
1/2tsp vanilla extract
In a food processor add all the ingredients and process until combined and finely cut. Then Simply form them into balls, bars or other shapes of your choice. To form them into other shapes spread the mixture out thinly onto baking paper and place in the fridge for 10 minutes. Then using a cookie cutter stamp out the shapes as you want them.
That's all for now, it's time to resume the search!
