It's been a long week in my house, with multiple exams and essays due the majority of the week and the entire weekend was spent in front of computers, pouring over books and grabbing snacks. It's that time of year isn't it? end of the school year is approaching and with it all the more challenging aspects of assessment. You might think that there wouldn't be any time for baking but these little beauties take about 10 minutes to throw together and can be done in one bowl, one cup, one muffin tin and a frying pan. So not too much mess. Baking also relieves stress which is extremely important and, if you needed another reason, these make a perfect snack or breakfast on the go.
