I was thinking to myself the other day about all of my favourite foods before I cut back on sugar/ wheat/ dairy, remember some of the good and the bad... and the ugly (hello mass volumes of sugary juice and iced tea and nutella with a side of toast) and as I was scrolling (pun= so not intended!) a few images of happy food memories popped up. One was out with friends at the shopping center, stopping for sustenance at a doughnut shop and buying my absolute favourite- cinnamon scroll. The other was at school excursions/ athletics/ swimming carnival days, opening my lunch to find a Baker's Delight Cheesymite scroll.
Never had I realised just how much I liked scrolls! So this morning for breakfast I wanted
Half an hour later I was sitting down to this:

1 teaspoon coconut oil
1.Preheat oven to 180 degrees clesius and line a tray with baking paper
2. Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl for the 'pastry' and stir together. Add the milk and stir together until the mixture starts to form a ball (add more milk if necessary). Leave to sit for about 5 minutes:
I mean check out that cinnamon action!
Ahh, there's nothing like the feeling of a partly-digested cinnamon scroll sitting in your tummy (wow. Just wow Steph)
What are/ were some of your favourite foods that may not be the best for you?
Favourite doughnut/ favourite scroll?
Do you ever unravel your food/ pull apart your biscuits (sorry Oreos) / take it all apart? For some reason some foopds taste better for me when I do that- weird..
I hope you all have a lovely relaxed Sunday! Bye friends! :D
