Funfetti Custard Creams #GBBO 2018 Week 1: Biscuits

Funfetti Custard Creams #GBBO 2018 Week 1: Biscuits

These delicious biscuits are a fun take on the traditional custard cream biscuit we all grew up with. My Funfetti Custard Creams are as easy to make as they are to eat, and too nice to dunk in your tea!

Funfetti Custard Creams

The Great British Bake Off is back!!!! Yaaaay *does a happy dance* ! Of course this means that it also sees the return of the Great Bloggers Bake Off *does another happy dance*.  Also, it sees the return of me baking lots and trying not to gain too much weight! Well, I have failed on that score already with my scrumptious Funfetti Custard Creams, as I have already eaten one and will probably devour another while I watch the show shortly.

Baking with your little ones!

Baking with your little ones!

The aromas of home baking are so distinctive – often these smells are wrapped up in memories of our own childhood. I know that the smell of a sponge cake baking in the oven takes me right back to baking with my own mum. It’s uninterrupted time, set aside, usually with just the two of you to work alongside each other and make something for everyone to share.

So it is week 2 on the Great British Bake Off and thats means biscuit week. Now I may have mentioned before on my blog, that biscuits are my baking nemesis. I cannot bake successful biscuits to save my life. In fact I would go as far to say, that I were ever to make it on the GBBO on TV, I would be gone by the end of week 2 because biscuits would be my worse bake! Here is the story behind my Angel Fish Biscuits.

Sugar Free Peanut Butter & Apple Granola Cookies

Sugar Free Peanut Butter & Apple Granola Cookies

These (refined) sugar free peanut butter and apple granola cookies are so easy to make as they need just 3 ingredients!
Sugar Free Peanut Butter & Apple Granola Cookies

These delicious sugar free cookies are not only delicious but sooooo easy to make, as they need just 3 ingredients and ones that can be found in your kitchen cupboards too. 

I received my new Degustabox UK delivery last week, and among the products was a box of Spoon Granola (apple and peanut) and that was when I decided to make some cookies with it. 

By adding some peanut butter and an egg to some granola, a simple cookie dough can be made which can bake into finished cookies in 10 minutes. 

I made a short video showing how easy these cookies are to make with you can see here

In the meantime, here is the recipe and method in full

 

Sugar Free Peanut Butter, Apple Granola Cookies
 
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 16
Ingredients
  • 1 cup of Granola - I used SPOON Granola Apple & Peanut
  • 1 cup of peanut butter - I used the crunchy one
  • 1 egg
Instructions
  1. pre heat the oven to 180-oC / 160oC (fan)
  2. grease and line a large baking tray / two baking trays
  3. place the granola, the peanut butter and egg into a food processor and mix well for about 1 minute - you want the finished dough to stick together to form cookie shapes
  4. make small balls from the mixture and place on the baking tray with a gap in between - you should make 16 small cookies
  5. press down on each dough ball with a fork to slightly flatten them
  6. bake in the oven for approx 10 minutes until just golden brown
  7. leave to cook completely on the baking tray before eating or storing inside a tin or sealed plastic tub

 
These really are so simple to make and really tasty – I have been happily eat8ing my way through the batch for my elevenses with my cup of tea this week!

Thank you to my co-host Helen for hosting the last Bake of the Week. I am sorry that I did not post a new linky last week, I will blame it on the extreme heat we had, and my turning a year older for my lack of organisation and  running out of time to post a recipe!

I receive a Degustabox every month to review, as I am an ambassador.It is my choice to devise a recipe .

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

These Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies are so easy to make and only use 5 ingredients.

These cookies are so easy to make and do not use any added sugar as they are made from peanut butter and chocolate spread, mixed with flour and an egg. So easy! Also because I had been sent some Dairy Milk chocolate with Oreo and peanut butter in my Degustabox Uk recently,

I added a square of this to the centre of each cookie too. This meant that each cookie had a delicious gooey chocolately centre.

To enable me to bake my cookies with no fuss or mess,  and to ensure that they could be removed from the baking tray easily without sticking to it, I used BACOFOIL NON STICK FOIL which is brilliant for allowing me to do just this. In fact it is the ‘Bacofoil Baco-Shake’ magic that allows food to slide off a baking tray with ease: from fishfingers to pizza, from chips to waffles, from cookies to brownies, BACOFOIL NON STICK FOIL is so handy to have in the kitchen, with its magic Bacofoil Baco-Shake ‘powers’. 

It is infact the dull side of the foil which is NON STICK so this is the part that you need to put your food on.

I have a made a little video showing not only how easy these Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies are to make, but how much easier they are to bake using Bacofoil NON STICK FOIL:

Here is the recipe:

Author:
Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • 150g self raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp chocolate spread
  • Dairy Milk Oreo and Peanut Butter chocolate
Instructions
  1. Pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160oC (fan)
  2. Place all of the ingredients but the Dairy Milk, into a mixing bowl and beat well to combine until a dough is formed
  3. Line a large baking tray with good quality tin foil - I used Bacofoil nonstick foil
  4. Place small balls of the dough onto the tray
  5. Then put a square of the chocolate into the centre of each cookie ball and cover over with the dough
  6. Bake in the oven for 7-9 minutes until golden brown - they will appear a little soft, this is fine as they will harden as they cool down. Leave the cookies on the tray until they are cool to the touch

Very easy and very yummy – these cookies can be made in next to no time and will be eaten just as quickly!

Why not share your Bacofoil Back Shake ideas and recipes here

I was sent some Bacofoil for the purpose of a review, it was my decision to include a recipe into my review. The Dairy Milk was included which I received as a Degustabox UK reviewer.
