Free From Baking in a hurry… Thought to blog in 35 minutes!!!

Hello πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ So another WHOLE week has passed and I have been sillyly (that’s GOT to become a word)! busy yet again! I couldn’t bear the thought of not posting at least once and I guessed that some of you might be short of time too! This is a very quick recipe – DEGF (Dairy. Egg. Gluten. Free) and I’m so confident this will turn out great, that I am writing this as it bakes! πŸ˜€

It’s nothing really new (sorry… time is short)! but I ‘needed!’ something to eat and I needed it now! I know ‘now’ has gone but I did eat a fair chunk before it even reached the oven! πŸ˜›

This is a flapjack type bake… someone must have another word for flapjack! Ooo.. how about coconut oat tray bake! πŸ™‚ Well, that’s what this one is! It’s full of coconut (obviously) and pecans! So it’s good for you too! I said it was quick… it only has seven ingredients and it’s made in one bowl with one spoon! πŸ™‚ Sixteen Fifteen squares ofΒ (14) yumminess (13) OMGosh! Stop eating them (12)!!! Have a look…


  • 30g coconut oil
  • 45ml date syrup
  • 45ml maple syrup
  • 200g porridge oats (GF if required)
  • 30g cassava flour
  • 20g desiccated coconut
  • 20g chopped pecans


  1. Put the coconut oil in a large bowl and mix with the date and maple syrups. Once mixed, put in the microwave for 30 seconds to melt it completely. Stir to combine.
  2. Add the oats and stir until coated with the syrup mix.
  3. Sprinkle over the cassava flour, coconut and pecans. Mix well.
  4. Tip into a lined (or greased) square baking tin. Press and level the top.
  5. Bake at Gas Mark 5 (375f / 190c) forΒ fifteen minutes. Allow to cool in the tin for ten minutes. Slice into squares (makes 16).
  6. Enjoy!

Hopefully I’ll be back soon! I’ve got a fantastic tofu recipe which has become my go to food which you HAVE to make!!! πŸ˜› and I never even liked tofu!!! It’s good!!! πŸ™‚ VERY good!!! πŸ™‚ Oh well.. back to being insanely busy! πŸ™ Keep smiling! πŸ™‚ Β (note to self!!! πŸ˜› πŸ™‚ )

    Mmmm, this looks a bit crunchy. Is it? I’m in a crunchy phase right now, I guess that dehydrator really wants to be bought! πŸ™‚ I don’t know why, but when I saw these pictures, I imagined some vanilla ice cream over the top. Those strawberries add a lovely color πŸ™‚

      Ooo Milica I made some chocolate ice cream today… for breakfast lol! πŸ˜› Hmmm I wonder if I could vanillify it πŸ™‚ Yes, back to the recipe πŸ˜€ It ‘was’ crunchy! You need my savoury spinach biscuits! πŸ™‚ Is there time for me to put the dehydrator on before bed…

        We tried few things from dehydrator, like burritos and I don’t like that it leaves me so thirsty. But if I drink water, I’m gonna feel like a balloon afterwards. Still trying to figure out how to avoid that πŸ˜€

          Nearly time to have time to make some more dehydrator goodies! Crackers for sure are on the list plus some form of date bar…
