{ Jesse 4-year-old birthday } Banana gluten free dog cookies

--> recette en français

    Last year,  I prepared some healthy pumpkin cookies for Jesse 3-year-old birthday - muffins too but she liked the cookies way better - with healthy natural ingredients. This year, I promised her to bake a new recipe for her 4th birthday and she enjoyed these cookies last weekend.

   These two recipes are either eatable by our fury friends but also ourselves, so no problem if one of your kids you happen to grab one to taste. These cookies are vegan but do not forget that our dogs and cats are not vegetarian nor vegan, whatever our diet is and for whatever reason, they need to eat meat/fish or it could be dangerous for their health. However, a few vegetarian/vegan treats from time to time is not bad for them.

Banana bread porridge

--> recette en français

    A few weeks ago, I went back on the porridge track. It had ben my usual breakfast almost everything week days morning for many years and then I got bored and quite even disgusted and didn't want to hear about porridge. At that time, I used to make it with only oats, milk and cooked in the microwaves. And lately, I've stumbled upon recipes cooked with water in a saucepan and garnished with fruit and else and it made me want to try again.

    Since then, I've started collecting flakes as for flours, I have oats, oat bran, rice, millet, buckwheat or even toasted soy flakes. It's as many possibilities to make different porridges in flavor or texture. And actually, cooked in a saucepan doesn't take more time than in the microwaves. I also like it better cooked in water, it's less thick at the end but I like to do half and half with milk too. So, now I want to try lots of porridges and today's recipe is really yummy, filling and won't let you down until lunch time. It's quite rich in carbs so better as a pre-workout breakfast.
