... Num Noms Pancake Day Fun! ...

We looooooove Pancake day in the Mini Beast house and were more than happy to team up with one of our favourites - Num Noms to have some NumNomtastic pancake day fun!

We were very Kindly sent some Pancake Day supplies along with Num Noms series 4 Deluxe Pack and Num Noms Mystery Pots


Ru adores his Num Noms collection and is always excited when he gets the chance to add to it.
He does like the starter packs, but his favourites are the blind bags.
The light ups and nail varnish Noms are his favourite!


Noah and I set about getting the pancakes cooked, I've never used a pre mixed pancake batter before and I was actually pleasantly surprised at how nice they were.
Noah showed off by flipping every pancake before placing it onto the wood block.


Once the pancakes were all made we placed them on the table with an array of toppings.
Then the competition was on ... who could made the nicest topping.


Alex opted for Lemon Juice, Chocolate spread and marshmallows.... I wasn't too keen on this one but he loved it!
Oscar went for just chocolate spread and you really can't go wrong with Nutella on a pancake!
Noah takes after my dad and went for lemon juice and sugar.
Ru went for chocolate spread and mini marshmallows!
Everyone agreed that Ru made the best combination of flavours and on their next pancakes they all did the same.





Ru's collection of Num Noms has tripled and he has even more nail varnishes to add to his collection.
The Nail varnish ring holder is pretty amazing and wished it came in a size to fit my own fingers!


What is your favourite pancake topping to have on Pancake Day?

In The Kitchen // With Natures Finest Fruit

I was recently sent a pot of mango's and peaches from Nature's finest foods.
I buy these occasionally as I know the boys love them.
Usually I just pop them in a bowl and let them help themselves, but this time I wanted to try something a little different.


So the peaches got served as normal for breakfast but with the mango's I decided I wanted to be a bit more creative.
So I searched the net and found a coconut & mango muffin recipe!


What You'll Need

1 1/4 cups of plain flour,
1 cup of whole-wheat flour,
1/3 cup sweetened flaked coconut,
2 tsp baking powder,
1/4 tsp bicarb soda,
1/2 brown sugar,
1 egg,
1 cup milk,
1/4 cup of melted butter,
1 tub of Mango sharing pot from Nature's Finest.

Baking Instructions

Pre heat the oven to 190*c,
Line up 12 muffin cases,
Mash up the Mango's in a bowl and leave to one side,
In a large bowl mix together the flours, coconut, baking powder, bicarb and salt
In another bowl whisk together the mango, sugar, egg, milk and melted butter.
Pour over the dry ingredients and mix.
Spoon the mixture into the cases and place in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until firm to touch.
Let them cool for 10 minutes and then Enjoy.


The boys weren't big fans, but Jon and I thought they were great!

**I was sent the sharing pots for the purpose of this post.
