Last week was World Kindness Day (13 November) - a day that focusses on good deeds, community and the positive power of kindness. Kindness is at the heart of everything we do here at Angel Delivery, so of course we had to mark the occasion!
On the day, we made what we call Kindness Cookies. These (relatively!) healthy little morsels are packed with oats, seeds and fruit (and a sneaky bit of choccie of course!).
They make the perfect gift to drop off to a friend, neighbour or family member who might need a little pick-me-up, or just a nice reason to sit down with a cup of tea and a chat. Best of all - they are super easy to make!
Here's the recipe below, so you can make some of your own Kindness Cookies at home.
No time to bake, or can't be there in person? Our High Tea hamper comes with French Macarons and Belgian Biscuits, with lots of other treats - a perfect fill-in for Kindness Cookies any time!
Makes 20-24 medium biscuits.
2 tbsp golden syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup dried cranberries or goji berries
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp boiling water
1 cup choccie chips
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Put the butter and golden syrup in a bowl, and microwave until melted.
In a big mixing bowl, add: sugar, oats, coconut, flour, seeds and berries.
Stir the baking soda into the boiling water, then add that to the melted butter & golden syrup bowl.
Add the liquid into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and mix well.
Roll the mix into small balls and put them on the tray, leaving room for them to grow a little. Press the biscuits down with the back of a fork.
Bake for 12-15mins, until biscuits are golden.
