    (makes about 24)
    2 eggs
    3/4 cups coconut sugar (or white sugar)
    2/3 cup real butter, softened
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cup self-raising flour

    Preheat oven to 180°C.
    Combine eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla.

  • Seed Kids Autumn Fashion Picks

    img_6540

    Layers, layers, layers. Autumn is all about warming up, cooling off, and being active, all at the same time.

    Pants are coming out in both relaxed and skinny fit, for both boys and girls… there is a real crossing over of boys/girls items. Its great to see! Tucked into boots or with skates/flats, all styles are super easy to work with.

    I’m not a fan of big bulky jumpers on active kids, so love puffer jackets that don’t inhibit movement but still keep their chests warm. Ponchos are a great option too, especially the ones with pompoms on them.

    Boots, be it rubber or casual, are a must have and can be worn with both pants and skirts for the girls. And rubber boots these days are so stylish that they are very acceptable to be your shoe of choice!

    Seed is the ultimate style hub for kids clothing, being one of the most popular children’s brands going around.
