Guess whose back...

Hello stranger! nice to see you.
Rocky Road Bars
You may have noticed that me and Beebz have been a little absent for the last 2 weeks! its been pretty hectic over here at bake n beebz HQ. lotsa work related stressing going on as well as taking on more hours, starting another new job and doing some design work, I kinda have neglected my oven and all things fun in general.

No need to fear though Bn'B readers, me and the shih tzu are going to be posting as normal and back on your computer screen once again...

Back in business and baked up some new Gluten Free sweet treats!

 Lookin' neat after a long old beauty parlour sesh with yours truly. really wanted to paint beebz's nails too but she'd already been through enough, poor shih... so i painted mine instead with my new pale blue Barry M Nail laquer.
  Went shopping with Charlotte on Sunday and got myself some of the essentials ya pyjamas, undies and some GOOOBUUUURS on sale down from 5.99 to 2 quid. Get in, couldn't wait to get stuck in. PB and jelly in one container is a genius time/ space saver...kinda?!?! haha
 Peanut Bee and jelly is the OG combo... some framed reminders on my walls to celebrate this...

 Also snapped up some Reeses cups in white chocolate. damn homie. best day for PB related stuff evhuuur.

 Getting in to my new pyjamas and poured some milk ready for these PB and white chocolate cookies, good night blogging world.

Gluten Free butterscotch & white chocolate chip peanut butter cookies

I baked this batch of chew chewieeee delicious healthy cookies the other day, after a week of putting this post on the back burner... these pictures are bringin' back sweet, sweet tooth memories and i'm craving them like a mad woman. A spin on the original choc chip version and the the was the ginger nut... now in the trilogy, of the epic saga that is my cookie recipes I bring you... Butterscotch & white chocolate peanut butter cookies.
Like always these are perfect dunked in to a cold glass full o milk. its hard to believe, ya'll think im saying but they are these are low cal and gluten free... they ain't the prettiest, I agree, but they are so damn tasty... and that what really matters, guys.
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (ground rolled oats!)
  • 1/4 cup peanut flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp bicarb of soda (not baking powder)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2T white chocolate chips, depending on your preference
  • 3 butterscotch hard candies smashed or broken into pieces
  • 2T brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sweetner
  • 1T peanut butter or pre-melted margarine
  • 1T plus 2tsp nondairy milk (feel free to switch proportions of milk and oil) (25g)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix your dry ingredients, then add in wet. Form cookies into discs using your palms on a baking sheet, and bake 6-8 minutes. Take out when still underdone–they’ll continue to cook while cooling, taking them out early this way, means they remain chewy!

 Me and Mr Bake n Beebz also rolled out to a theme park fright night at the weekend! The theme park was seasonally decorated with giant pumpkins and spooky bits and bobs.
It was open late in to the night, thrill seekin' was pretty fun in the dark! It took all my will power to keep a straight face whilst this picture was taken, didnt think a log flume could be so petrifying.
