Bread and Cookies


Thank you so much for all the interesting thoughts and comments concerning the compost toilet. I think it is a tough subject and a lot to discuss about; I will definitely keep you informed about its use on the long run, inchaallah.


But today it is time for something more edible: bread and cookies.

This weekend I finally had some time to sew some new bags for the school.
The pupils of ours are divided in several groups and every school day another group has to bring bread for the common breakfast-break. Every day, during our end-circle, we give to everyone of the group a cotton bag in which they will bring the homemade flat bread for the next morning. Using those bags, they are reminded to bring the bread and they use that bag instead of using plastic – that’s simple educational green living in action, you see.


These bags are very simple and easy to sew; made of old fabric or sheets, squares sewn together with one short sling on the top, nothing special but very nice and useful (even for other things).


And after having finished the bags, I made some cookies, rolled oat cookies, to be precise. Again something very quick and easy, nothing special, but really yummy:


Rolled Oat Cookies

350 g flour

250 g rolled oats (Haferflocken)

6 table spoons of brown sugar

200ml milk

200 g melted butter

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon


Mix all together until you have firm dough. Roll little balls of the size of a walnut and press them flat on the baking sheet. Bake on 200°C for about 5 minutes. Done.

Bismillah! And have a blessed week!
