One of my stress busters is baking. And it’s been a stressful few days, plus I used up all the treats in my freezer when visitors came over on Monday, so I thought it was time for some baking.
I have some dark rye flour still in the back of my cupboard, so I googled recipes and found this:
What is dark rye flour? I had to google that, and it turns out it is just wholemeal, and it’s not very dark.
The only amendments I made to the Ginger Crumbles recipe were:
- I didn’t have plain oats, so I picked out (most of) the raisins, nuts, etc. from my muesli mix and used that instead, so it has linseed and maybe a few goji berries in there.
- I didn’t have a lemon, just half a lime in the fridge so I had to use that.
Verdict: They are utterly delicious. Crunchy on the outside, slightly chewy on the inside. The pieces of crystallized ginger give them quite a hot spicy taste – perhaps children would find it too much? I don’t really eat many biscuits but I ate four of these before they were quite cool!
