Ayoba - Bafana Bafana!

Wow, do I feel proud to be a South African or what!

It’s true what they say about sport being able to bring a nation together – there is such a feeling of euphoria in the air, which could be due to the distinct sound of the vuvuzela being trumpeted at every opportunity. But the fact of the matter is; we are united! We are now behind Bafana Bafana 100% and even believe that they can win – Ok, we are not that optimistic, but we believe that they will definitely not get kicked out in the first round!

Ayoba Bafana Bafana – It’s Our Time – Make us proud!

I have embraced this feeling of South African-ness in the form of my newly created:

Chocolate Maltabella Coconut Cookies:
(Makes 18 – 20 cookies)


1 Cup Maltabella
1 Teaspoon No Egg Egg Replacement or Maizena
1 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum (You can buy this at Dischem)
½ Teaspoon of each container of Nature’s Choice Baking Powder (Also bought at Dischem)
½ Cup Desiccated Coconut
2-3Tablespoons Xylitol or Caster Sugar
1 Slab Nestle Albany Original Dark
1 Cup Rice Milk
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract


Heat oven to 200 Degrees Celsius
Sift all dry ingredients together
Melt chocolate in the rice milk with the vanilla extract for about 20 seconds, in the microwave
Slowly stir the melted chocolate mixture into the dry ingredients until well combined
Dollop small amounts of the final mixture onto a greased baking tray
Bake in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside

This can also be used as a yummy muffin mix
