Best cookies for the plane

I’ve been in the arctic for over 6 weeks now. Mom sent me a care package not too long after I got here with mostly chocolate and a few ingredients hard to find or expensive here. She also sent a magazine and special ingredients to accomplish some recipes.

Last week I made those cookies. They are very delicious and a perfect snack to bring flying providing a lot of energy during those long flights.

First mix :

  • 2 cups of oat meal
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Salt

Wisk in a another bowl:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of maple sirup
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (I just used normal and cheap yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk (I used normal milk)

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the liquids and add:

  • 1/2 cup of pecans ( I didn’t have any so I used dark chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 cup of dried cranberries (that mom placed in my care package)
  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds (placed as well by mom in my care package)

Bake in big cookies at 350 F for about 18-20 min.

Winter Photography

Every pictures on my blog are mine or my boyfriend’s shots.
I am personally fairly new to it. I use a canon rebel DSLR camera and most of the pictures are taken with my favorite lens a 50 mm. For those who understand photography, this type of lens is very good to play with the aperture and make blurry backgrounds.
I took those shots last week, hope you like it!

Toutes les photos sur mon blog on été prise par moi ou mon copain.

Pour moi, c’est un nouveau hobby, alors j’essai pleins de trucs. J’utilise une caméra DSLR de la série Rebel de canon et pour la majorité de mes photos j’utilise un objectif de 50 mm.

Si vous connaissez un peu la photographie vous comprendrez que c’est parfait pour contrôler l’ouverture de l’objectif et donné un effet flou à la photo. 

Les photos suivante ont été prise la semaine dernière. J’espère que vous aimerez.
