Autumn is my absolute favourite time of year for getting outside as a family. I love to go for long walks, collecting conkers and crunching in the Autumn leaves. The colours are lovely, its often mild weather with just a small chill in the air. The only problem is that it’s not quite warm enough to sit and eat a picnic. Instead I like to take a snack bag full of treats for if someone gets a bit hungry. It saves a bit of money and means that we can keep going for longer. I thought some biscuits would be nice, but wanted something a little healthier so made these Yeo Valley biscuits to bring with us, which use yogurt instead of butter.
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup of coconut sugar
1/4 cup of caster sugar
1 tsp of honey
1/4 cup of Yeo Valley Greek Yogurt with honey
1 cup plain flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
Combine the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry in another. Create a well in the ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix into a ball being careful not to overwork. Leave overnight in the fridge. Roll into small balls and flatten with a fork. Bake in a warm oven for 7 to 10 minutes until golden brown.
As well as the biscuits we also packed some Little Yeos Yogurts, some fruit and a drink then headed off to the woods.
We had a lovely time. There is something very calming being underneath a canopy of trees. We found a large tree which had fallen in the wind, perfect for climbing on.
All that fresh air meant we soon needed to stop for a snack. The girls loved the Yeo Kids yogurts. They come in four tasty fruit flavours and are surprisingly filling.
You can buy Yeo Kids in most supermarkets foraround £1.75 for 4 pots of 120g. They come in four creamy flavours strawberry, raspberry, apricot and peach and contain real fruit juice.
We left the wood with a giant bag of conkers, full tummies and happy hearts. The perfect day out.
