The following taken from Recipes thread is really yummy & easy to make.

EASY & Delicious
Chocolate Coconut Rough Slice
For the chocolate rough:
1 ½ cups self raising flour
1 cup White Sugar
1 ½ cups coconut
3 tablespoons cocoa
200 g butter, melted

For the chocolate icing:
2 cup Icing Sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 knob of softened butter (approx. 10g)
3 tablespoons hot water (approx.)
Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray a 20 x 30 cm sponge roll tin with non stick baking spray or paper.

Mix all the chocolate rough ingredients in a large bowl. Press into the prepared tin and bake for 20 minutes. Cool in the tin while you make the icing.

Icing: Sift Icing Sugar & cocoa into a bowl, add in butter and hot water, and mix well until smooth. Spread over the chocolate rough while still warm in the tin. Icing should spread easily; if too thick add a little more hot water to allow it to spread well.
Sprinkle over the coconut and cut into squares, leave to completely set and go cold in the tin before removing.
Store in an airtight container.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Makes: 28 - 30 pieces

pinwheel scones:
either sweet (cinnamon, sugar, rasins etc)
OR savory (cheese, onion, vegemite/marmite)

Go to the Chelsea page and look up Egg and dairy free chocolate fudge cake

do you have butter and golden syrup and baking soda !

if so you could make hokey pokey biscuits too

Don't dare ask or you will bring the wrath of many angry women raining down upon your head. Don't ask me either but apparently biscuits and baking are vital to children's well being, good health, vitality and dental hygiene or probably, and this is also likely, so they won't get bullied at school. Or maybe it is so that they will have something to trade with those children who get given great food but would prefer home baking. Lol.

Next time you're at the supermarket instead of buying baking items buy a bag of carrots, some chicken nibbles, eggs, cheese, fruit.All good things to snack on.My kids don't get baking unless it's a birthday.Some of my children don't even get fruit in their lunchbox.

Any cornflakes. you could make afghans,maybe hokey pokey biscuits.
I bake as it's the only treat I get, and fills gaps, I try to make healthy things, but at the cost of fresh veges and fruit, they are sometimes a luxury that has to be rationed, if I can supplement those with a few other things to fill tummies I do.
I believe we eat as balanced a diet as we can afford, and if that includes some home baking, so be it.

Fixed your broken links, jessie ;)

another great "filler" for tummies, to packin school lunches is cheese and onion bread cases. A good way of using up any stale bread, and can be eaten hot or cold.
