Marinated cheese & olives and oat crackers


This is one of the easiest gifts ever. And a really good one too. Served with oat crackers makes a great appetizer.


  • olives
  • young goat cheese
  • dried or fresh thyme, basil, rosemary
  • red peppers
  • extra virgin olive oil


  1. Mix everything in a bowl, than transfer to a jar. All the ingredients should be covered with oil. Let marinate at least 2 days.


Sesame and nigella oat crackers


  • 200 g rolled oats
  • 40 g butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 50 – 70 g water
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp  nigella or sesame


  1. Finely grind rolled oats into a flour consistency.
  2. Mix oats, salt, seeds and baking powder. Add butter (or coconut oil if using) and evenly mix with hands.
  3. Add water, mix and let sit. Oats will soak up. It it gets too dry, add a bit more water.
