No sweat biscuits

eco-deodorant biscuits

One evening at the LivingsmartSA course at Mclaren Vale we made eco deodorant from corn flour, bicarb, rosemary, thyme and lemon grass oil. It smelled divine. Couldn’t bring myself to use it as an eco deodorant and said I would make savoury biscuits . Here they are. So light, crispy and delicious . I think the ingredients were 2 tbsp cornflour, 1 tbsp bicarb, rosemary and thyme about a teasp and a few drops of lemon grass oil . I told Dani, the lady who showed us how to make the dry eco deodorant, I was going to do this and the eco deodorant biscuits have taken my biscuit making to a whole new level and realm. The video shows you a different sort of eco deodorant. It was important that we had eco deodorant brought to our attention. We do need to be careful about what is going on our skin because those things are absorbed straight into our blood stream.  There are some more recipes for ecodeodorant  The Homemade experiment.

Cheese and Bacon Cornmeal Muffins

Makes 12. 180 C    35 minutes

Grease muffin pan

1 cup cornmeal
1 cup milk
2 cups SR flour
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 cup bacon bits
1 good teaspoon dried basis
1 good teaspoon dried thyme
2 large eggs
Handful of Allbran cereal

Mix wet ingredients with the cup of cornmeal and stir well. Mix in all the other ingredients and stir well. The mixture needs to be wet so add a bit more milk if the eggs are smaller. Spoon into muffin pans so each section is nearly full.

Bake and cool on a wire rack if people can keep their hands off them for that long!
