Scrummy buttery chocolate chip shortbread!


Kids in the kitchen is a must!

Final week of the summer holidays and I’m just trying to find things to do 😂🙏🏾

Emi made the easiest yummy buttery vegan shortbread today 😋

Just 5 simple ingredients!

This $2 silicone mould from https://us.flyingtiger.com/en-us/

No sticking, no fuss and just makes it look cute!

@earthbalance non soy butter is the key!!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup All purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • As many enjoy life dark chocolate morsels as you like!!!!

 

Preheat oven to 300*F

In a bowl mix together sugar, salt and sieved flour (optional of you want chocolate chips)

Add butter and combine with fingers,  until it all comes together in a ball.

If you don’t have the silicone mould simply sprinkle some flour on a board, GENTLY roll out and use shape cutters!

Pop in the over on a lined baking tray for 45 minutes and Voila 😋

These turned out so crumbly and buttery! All that was missing was cuppa 🇬🇧

Addictive Kale chips!

Im never buying these again! This could not be easier guys 🤷🏽‍♀️

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 bunch of Kale (stems removed)
  • 2 tablespoons Avocado oil or Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast
  • sprinkle of Garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Wash and dry the kale!

Toss the kale in oil and massage in well. Sprinkle with the Garlic, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper and mix with your hands until all the leaves are coated!

Place the kale on a large baking sheet and spread evenly.

Bake on the center of the oven at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, turn tray half way.

 

It really is that easy 🤗 next time I will add my raw cashews to my dry ingredients in a blender just for a bit more depth!

These can keep for 3 days in an air tight container.
