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 🇬🇧

Kids Deserve Cleaner Water 🙏🏾

Wow!

I no longer bathe my child in a chlorine bath!

By Adding 1/4 tsp (or 1000 mg) ascorbic acid crystals (vitamin C) into your bathwater prior to bathing the vitamin C reacts with the chlorine, converting it into a safe form like chloride 👍🏾

A free documented report by Dr. Mercola reveals the following dangers associated with chlorine consumption and inhalation:

Heart Attacks

Cancer

Tiredness, dizziness, and headaches

Eye, sinus, and throat irritations

Infertility issues

Miscarriage

Childhood asthma

Hair cuticle issues and dandruff

Rashes

Headaches

Arthritis

Liver and kidney problems

Dry skin and scalp

Indoor pollution

Weakened immune response

And more ………

If you thought you were safe from the affects of chlorine because you filter your drinking water, you’re wrong. You must remove chlorine from bathwater too!

Just spreading the LOVE ❤️❤️❤️
