Does the Title matter?

Today’s recipe is my own created Sweet Potato and Spelt Flour Something that I can’t decide the title quite frankly. Because it actually can be anything you want it to be. A soft’ish cookie, a chewy naan bread or a delicious pitta bread, unlike the dry version we buy from the shop.  It’s really tasty on its own as well as to wipe up curry sauces.  But I thought as a lunch box option it’s quite good

Planning Planning

I created this recipe by accident one day when I had some sweet potato mash left from the previous day. We love sweet potatoes here.  I would usually roast and keep it in the fridge for lunches or snacks. whenever the oven is on, I throw in some sweet potatoes to roast, and I know it will get used a way or another.

Don’t Be Afraid of Change, It can be a Good Thing

I find, planning a little before hand helps me stay sane.   The recipe was born while I was going to make my old sweet potato flat bread, but I didn’t have the strength and patience to roll it and clean up afterwards. So instead, I decided to bake them. I thought to add some flax seeds to help with the binding.  I love the combination of sweet potato and cinnamon so I sprinkle a generous amount in too. You could probably add in any other spice or herbs you like.The result was quite a surprise in texture.

Be Proud in what you create every day- Big or small, it doesn’t matter

The result was quite a surprise in texture and flavour that I had to share it on my social media. I got a good response from my Instagram and Facebook friends and decided to share the actual recipe on the blog after testing the recipe several times. Sometimes, the change that you were scared to make can be a blessing to so many!
