• So, since Ava was born we have been ridiculously spoilt with meals and treats from friends – thank goodness, because i think we may have starved otherwise! The other day my friend Nicci brought some oat chocolate brownies for us all to share and well, i gave Charley one immediately – forgot to pop them on a plate when Nicci and I had some tea, and when she’d left – i ate them ALL (!!) I asked her for the recipe so Charley and i could make a batch for the whole family (and not just me) to enjoy ..they couldn’t be easier, Charley loved all the mixing (and picking off the chocolate balls) and we had everything you need to make them in the cupboard too. I had a friend at varsity whose Mom used to make these for her and send them in perfectly lined tins and of course there’s a school cake sale thing to them to which i love. A great rainy day distraction treat and the kind of childhood recipe i’m sure many of you have in your repertoire already..


    Mix together:

    2 cups oats

    2 cups flour

    2 cups coconut

    2 Tbsp cocoa

    1 cup brown sugar

    350g butter, melted

    2 tsp baking powder

    Tip mixture into greased baking pan and flatten. Bake at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

    For topping: add 2tsp melted butter to 2 cups icing sugar and 1Tbsp cocoa. Add small amount hot water to thin it out a little, pour over brownies while still hot and leave to set.

      Great easy recipe, will make it! I might try another topping, does the topping take a whole 2 cups of icing sugar 🙂 ?
