It may be slightly cheeky to call this recipe ‘festive’ as I’ve merely added fragrant ginger (in the form of biscuits!) and cranberries to the tiffin. But this girl needs something simple, quick and tasty for all the December walking adventures, and ginger and cranberries sprung to mind! The texture of tiffin wins me over every single time. These would make a great gift too!
A hot cup of tea and a crunchy ginger biscuit on an autumnal day is my idea of perfection (I lead a rock and roll lifestyle). These spicy snacks are great for warming up your outdoor adventures and the third recipe for the Walk + Eat series.
There’s something comforting about opening up a glamorous tupperware box of homemade biscuits and a large flask of hot tea after climbing the hills. And the perfect incentive too, if the weather isn’t too grand.
I mentioned in my previous post that there would be a new blog series on Mathilde heart Manech. Welcome to the first instalment of Walk + Eat; simple and homely recipes to accompany outdoor adventures.
I decided to incorporate my love of walking with something I’d like to do more of – making homemade food. Whether that be snacks for the Tupperware box or food for the flask, I’m hoping I’ll soon have an array of simple and delicious recipes to fuel us on our walking adventures. And if you love the great outdoors and a backpack full of homemade goodies, I’m hoping you’ll find some inspiration too.
Today’s recipe is flapjack like my mum used to make. This tray-bake is sweet, chewy (with delicious crispy edges), and the perfect accompaniment to your flask of hot tea. Save the image below for ease or pin to your Food/Outdoor boards on Pinterest for later!
Recently, my walks have been short and closer to town due to nerve damage in my foot (thankfully we have good friends and a dog walker on hand), but the foot is getting better and I’ll be sharing Calder Valley adventures alongside my next recipe soon.
P.S did I mention we’re hiking Ben Nevis?! That’s another story, I’m going to need all the tray-bakes to get me up that mountain!
