Welcome to Cette Petite Maison


My name is Carol-Ann and I am a maker and crafter of all kinds of things and with Cette Petite Maison (This Little House) I hope to share a little bit of my life here in the beautiful rural Quercy Blanc area of France and introduce you to some of my neighbours and their wonderful produce.

I am trying a embrace a simpler lifestyle, working towards sustainability so I am offering a small range of items, made, grown and harvested locally by neighbours and friends and I hope that the phrase Products with Provenance resonates.

If you would like to follow along, it would be lovely to have your company, just add your name and e-mail to Follow my Blog below, and I promise not to inundate you with too many posts.

Healthy Pure Honey Flapjacks

I work with horses and sometimes need a bit of extra energy, I used to buy energy bars until I decided to make my own and they are Delicious :)

250g porridge oats
200g butter
6 to 7 tablespoons honey (I use 6 spoons)
15g Raisins
10g Dessicated Coconut
A pinch of salt

1) Pre heat oven to 180 C / Gas 4, and grease and line a baking tin. (I use a shallow Silicone Muffin Pan which is why my Flapjacks are round :)
2) Melt the butter over a low heat and then stir in the honey and salt and mix for a few minutes over a very low heat.
3) Add the coconut and raisins and lastly the oats, stir well until oats are evenly with the mixture.coated.
4) Spread the mixture evenly on the tin, (I divide the mixture as evenly as possible between the molds of my Silicone pan) and press down.
5) Place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is slightly golden.
6) Leave to cool completely and then cut in to squares (or pop out of the Silicone molds) and enjoy
