Thank you for visiting my blog!

Over the last few years, I have been cooking for PureMalt staff, guests and events. I create every day food recipes for all to enjoy and often experiment with the addition of malt extracts in some of my dishes. East Lothian is a county full of great tasting and exciting local produce, which I will try to include in my food whenever possible.  It’s all about quality and flavour – hope you enjoy my recipes!

    Add these to the oats mixture and combine all ingredients together to make a thick gluey mixture.

    Spoon out approximately 1 tablespoon mixture and roll around in hands to make golf ball sized balls. Place on grease proof paper and refrigerate for about an hour to harden up. Place into Tupperware container and keep refrigerated to make them last a couple of days, thats if they do! Ours disappeared in about ten minutes!
