Glue-In-A-Pan

Or glutinous rice cake, or nian gao (except this is super different from nian gao in Asia, so I like to think of this as a Westernized version). Anyway, it’s sweet and fragrant and chewy and slightly flaky/crispy on the top layer, and 1000% better than I thought it would be when I modified the bejeezus out of the original recipe here.

Working on a chocolate version, so I might as well write this down while that one bakes.

Ingredients:
+ 1 cup glutinous rice flour
+ 1 egg
+ 1 tbsp olive oil*
+ 0.5 cup water
+ 3 tbsp stevia**
+ 3 tbsp sugar
+ 0.5 tsp vanilla or to taste
+ cinnamon powder to taste
Instructions:
1. Mix flour with water, add beaten egg and everything else and stir until not lumpy.
2. Pour into greased dish.***
3. Bake at 180 Celsius for ~40 mins, or until knife can be inserted and taken out clean.

Calories: 775 for entire recipe, makes about 12 small rectangles

* or other oil, I doubt that makes a difference

** stevia brands vary in taste. Also, you can substitute this with sugar

*** the one I used was 20cm x 13 cm, the mochi turned out ~1cm thick.

These were actually popular.

Actually Edible Apple Crumble

HUGE SUCCESS! Edible for people with normal standards (*most things are edible to me. Like my own cooking). I’ve been having this for breakfast two days in a row now, which really says something considering my laziness and the fact that this takes an hour of my life to make.

+ 2 tbsp almond milk*
+ 0.5 tsp vanilla

Instructions (Version 1):
1. Mix first six ingredients together and toss.
2. Mix last three ingredients together.
3. Combine and mix all ingredients.

5. Bake at 195 Celsius for 5-10 mins.
6. Leave in oven for 10 mins.

Calories: 235

* Or milk of your choice

** Add more to preference, I take no responsibility

+ 0.5 sliced banana
+ 0.5 tsp vanilla
+ 0.5 tsp cinnamon
+ 1 tbsp greek yogurt
+ 1 tsp stevia (substitute sugar)
+ 4 tbsp quick oats
+ 2 tsp flour
+ 1 tbsp applesauce
Instructions (Version 2):
1. Mix first six ingredients together and toss.
2. Mix last three ingredients together.
3. Combine and mix all ingredients.
4. Bake at 175 Celsius for 25 mins.

6. Leave in oven for 10 mins.

Calories: 200

For some reason this second version became slightly too brown/charred when baked at ~200 C for 10 minutes, so 5 should probably do the trick.

Either way, this is parent-tested and approved to the point where they ate it voluntarily, which happens almost never.

TL;DR will not regret, this is good, do it now.
