Fourth in the 50 km. So close!

in other news, Sebastien Toutant bags air gold and Canada’s 500th Olympic medal.

Owl Pellet Cookies Recipe

This recipe is from a nature club that my son used to attend on Saturdays at High Park.  (If you’re not familiar with it, check it out. They also offer workshops for adults).

This is so simple that my son can whip up a batch on his own.

  • Mix Dry Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups oats

1/2 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 Tbsp of cocoa

Tiny pinch of salt

  • Mix Wet ingredients

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup oil

1 egg

  • Add Wet to Dry Ingredients
  • Mix in

1 apple (chopped to look like little rodent bones)

1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

  • Roll into pellet shape and bake on an oiled pan at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Yum!
