At the end of term we always like to say a big thank you to the teachers by making them something homemade.
This year I used a recipe from Life Currents that I had originally set aside for number four as it is allergy free; but it seemed something nice and easy for number three to prepare herself.
- 200g Shredded Coconut
- 230ml Coconut Oil
- 2tbsp Maple Syrup
- Half tsp Vanilla Extract
- In a saucepan mix together the coconut, coconut oil and the syrup and heat for about 5mins until some oil is absorbed.
- Remove from the heat and pack firmly into a 9 by 5 inch loaf tin and refrigerate for around an hour.
- Once hardened remove from the tin and cut into 21 small pieces.
I found some lovely jam jars in our local kitchen suppliers The Art Of Living which were perfect to home our handmade gifts.
To finish the gift off she tied her gift tag to the jar with some string.
Hopefully her teachers will be pleased with the gifts and have a great summer holiday.
What gifts do you normally chose for your children’s teachers?
