Autism Fact: People with autism are more likely to be the victims of violence than committing a violent act
Big thanks to RJ for letting me join in this autism awareness month blog hop. This year’s theme is food and I’d like to share a comfort food recipe of mine (it has oats so I like to think of it as healthy too!). You can swap the butter for coconut oil and the honey for golden syrup to make a vegan version.
I’d also like to do a giveaway for my book Foxes, as this story is very close to my heart. It’s a love story about a big-hearted boy with autism, who keeps his world small in order to survive, but who will do anything to save those around him. All you have to do to enter the giveaway is comment or like this post^^
Here’s my recipe for flapjacks 😊
300g Butter (or coconut oil)
70g Soft Brown Sugar/or whatever sugar you have
3 tbs Golden Syrup or Honey
A couple of handfuls of raisins (optional)
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Melt the butter and golden syrup or honey in a pan, then pour into the dry ingredients. Mix. Tip into a square or round tin approx 23-25cm. Bake in oven at 180C or gas 4/5 for 20/25 mins (depending on how chewy you like them-the longer you leave them the chewier or crunchier they are).
When expectations exceed achievements it’s human nature to think that you’ve failed in some way. When the truth is, you haven’t. At all. Problem is, society, school, has us so goal orientated our brains play sneaky tricks on us—you achieve something, something big, something small (I’m not sure it makes any real difference), your brain pretty quickly moves the goal posts and that achievement? It’s no longer important, no longer something to be celebrated, no longer something you even think about. Continue reading
