Over the weekend we have had fun making our own recipes, as we were invited to take part in the Jordans Recipe Challenge. Our idea will be posted over at their website for two weeks, so we wanted to come up with something fun, easy to make, tasty and healthy!!
We toyed with the ideas of flapjacks, cookies and fruit crumble but still needed to find something a little bit healthier. My children said "can we add lots of fruit" and I opened the fridge to find natural yogurt so that is how we came up with our recipe. They loved making these and had lots of fun layering up the ingredients.
To start we made mine so we could set out a method of how to make them up. Then the kids mixed and matched all their favourite things, layer by layer, so they all had their customised recipes. The best part was eating them, they never left a thing and loved them as an afternoon treat instead of chocolate.
Chef Edd Kimber (winner of Great British Bake Off 2010) will choose a winner and two runners up and the winning recipe will be published in the Jordans Cereals newsletter.
We want to share our fun, fruity and healthy breakfast, brunch, snack or supper time treat, we have called it -

June is the month that 2 of my children have birthdays and after getting over the shock that my son turned 18 just over 2 weeks ago I can't believe my (baby) daughter is 7 today...
Me and my youngest two went to the pictures to see Alvin and the Chipmunks this morning whilst my husband was at work can't believe it only cost £5-00 for all 3 of us,they love it as they've never seen it before...
Hubby has taken her out to Jengo's playhouse now as I'm making her some tea.Then it's party time...
Another thing I can't believe is I won this dress on Twitter last week... it arrived today so I may be going out later to wear it.Will wear a vest under though...
