Baking on what is probably going to be the second hottest day of the year after yesterday, is probably not the best plan but it seemed like a good idea at the time! I’m rather fond of Nigella’s feel good food because ‘it does what it says on the tin’ so to speak. ‘Simply Nigella’, available as they say, from all good bookshops, came to me as a Christmas prezzy from my brother last year.
I’m always looking for that little treat to add to the picnic I take to work and Anzac biscuits seem to fit the bill. I’ve also tried Nigella’s breakfast bars (p358) with the odd diversion from her ingredient list! As the lady herself says, “there are gluten-free, dairy-free and enough seeds to make you start sprouting!” The Anzacs are not quite as virtuous but we all need a goody from time to time!
I’ve made mine without the coconut purely because I didn’t have any. I just upped the quantity of pumpkin and sunflower seeds. I cannot tell you what they taste like yet as they are still cooling but the house smells glorious! I’m hoping Nigella won’t mind me sharing, so get to it and make some!
