Do you ever make things to eat that you're pretty sure the children won't like? And that's OK, because actually you don't want to share it?

Yes well. Today I made flapjack, a dairy free flapjack from my new favourite recipe book 'Deliciously Ella' by Ella Woodward. It's made with nut butter, and I used peanut butter purposely because no-one else in my house likes it. I'm finding it pretty tough this cows milk free diet, especially as we have lots of things in the house at the moment that I can't eat, so how great would it be to have something that only I like?

Except, it turns out that when it's in this flapjack EVERYONE likes peanut butter! Yes, that means EVERYONE likes the flapjack.

Guess I'll have to share then. *sulks*


  1. I know how you feel - I am technically gluten-free and it is hard. I am lucky in that I can tolerate a certain amount and it is mainly wheat-gluten that aggravates it. We have a lot of fun with Sqk who ahs to be both and fructose free - which is not easy with a little boy who loves fruit.

  2. Ella and I are not very good at sharing - except with each other. When you had as little as we had we tended to guard our few special possessions very strictly! It still make me smile when I have to tell Alice (aged 2) about sharing.
