Recently I’ve been doing a lot of baking. I’ve been making oat and raisin squares, chocolate brownies (pictured above), banana tea bread, butternut squash tea bread and the other day I made some chocolate cookies! I have found that with all this baking comes lots of crumbs!
The most popular way to use up the crumbs in my household is mixed in with a bowl of homemade yoghurt as my kids have it most days for dessert.
There are a wide variety of uses for crumbs though and there is no need to let them go to waste ever again
Here are 5 more ideas for using up the crumbs:
- Squash the crumbs together while still warm and make them into bite sized snacks. If they are too crumbly you could add a little oil to combine them.
- Cheesecake base – just combine the crumbs with a little melted butter or oil, put a layer in the bottom of the relevant dish. Layer with the rest of the cheesecake ingredients and put in the fridge to set.
- Sprinkled onto a bowl of icecream – they can really jazz up a boring bowl of vanilla!
- Crumbs could be used to top fruit pies and bakes – just mix in a little oil or butter to stop the crumbs from burning.
- Eat them as a yummy snack when all the baking has gone!
