Easter Baskets

by Sofia   -   in DIY projects  Good things for kids

This year´s Easter baskets contain little pouches for the girls that have embroidered lambs on them ( they already have something else in the same line and I will do a whole blog post about them later). I found them on a work trip and love them! There are also little chocolate eggs from a  famous Italian chocolate factory Venchi that has existed since 1878. Some Easter crackers and yellow head bands with big funky bows on them and the Beatrix Potter initials I already mentioned earlier. I think these turned out so well.

Tämän vuoden pääsiäsikorit odottelevat vaatehuoneessani sunnuntaita. Tytöt ilahtuvat näistä varmasti!

Löysin Turun retkellämme vanhasta hallista pääsiäiskoristeisiimme uuden ystävän, herra Jänön. Se pakataan tietenkin pääsiäisen jäkeen silkkipaperiin ja odottamaan seuraavaa vuotta. Vaikka herra Jänö näyttääkin suklaapupulta on se oikeasti keraaminen joten sitä saa ihailla vuodesta toiseen. Haaveissani oli tehdä herra Jänön ympärille kukka-asetelma sammaleesta, narsisseista, hyasinteistä, sipulitulppaaneista, pienistä tinapaperilla päällystetyistä suklaamunista ja vastaavista. Ehkäpä ensi vuonna! Tänä vuonna Jänö vielä ihmettelee paikkaansa ihan sellaisenaan.




Lasinen pupuastia on Leila´s General Storesta. Se on tosin jo muutaman vuoden vanha.

These muffins are gluten and dairy free but you can absolutely make them which way you like as I used an old simple muffin recipe and switched the regular flour to gluten free baking flour and milk for a nut milk option.

Banana Breakfast Muffins

2 ripe bananas ( mushed with a fork or so)

2 tbls honey

1 tbls sugar or  even better… coconut sugar

2 eggs

3 tbls vegetable oil ( I often use sunflower for baking as it has no taste

3/4 cups mylk ( or milk)

but anything from coconut to olive oil really works as long as you are ok with the taste)

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp baking powder

2 cups flour of your choice ( you could substitute some of it with rolled oats or granola or both)

some Granola sprinkled on top ( optional)

1. Beat the eggs a little in a big bowl. Add the mylk ( almond, coconut, soy, oat…)/milk, honey, sugar, bananas and oil. Mix well.

2. In a small bowl sift together the flour, cinnamon and baking powder. Fold in to your liquid gently until just incorporated well. Do not over mix as that is the key to a nice and fluffy muffin. ( Fluffy Muffin sounds like a name of a pooch in the deep South does´t it?!)

3. Use a scoop to make 6-8 big muffins in muffin tins. You can ” decorate” your muffins with some banana slices or dried banana or use granola like I did. I love this Finnish granola I find in a store called Anton & Anton. It´s a dark chocolate and hazelnut granola from Frangipani but you could use any brand really. You could even fold some in to your muffin batter for a nice texture and some extra crunch ( I would have but we only had a little bit left). But I´m telling you this granola is so delicious so if you get a chance try it out!

4. Bake for about 30 minutes in a 180°c oven.
