Just a quick post here today, with a few simple ingredients. I always enjoy using peanut butter because its my favourite spread and I thought I would try out coconut flour. These peanut butter bites are super smooth and have quite a strong coconut taste but it’s not too bad once you get used to it.
Peanut butter bites (makes 6)
50g peanut butter
30g brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
15g coconut flour
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and take out a small baking tray.
Add everything to a bowl and mix very well.
Evenly spoon onto the tray.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and leave to cool down before eating.
Today I’m bringing you super tasty and soft Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies. I feel like a couple of these would be great for breakfast or at least a mid morning snack, providing you with lasting energy from the oats and peanut butter. It’s a nice recipe to make and full of lots of flavour from the juicy raisins to the sweet cinnamon.
Recipe: Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies (makes 15)
105g plain flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of bicarbonate soda
Pinch of baking powder
40g demerara sugar
90g soft brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line two trays with parchment paper.
In a bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, bircarbonate soda and baking powder together and set aside.
In another bowl, cream the butter and sugars together until well combined and smooth, then mix in the egg and vanilla extract.
Gently add the flour mixture, oats, raisins and peanut butter.
Once everything is combined, spoon out equal portions of the dough and place on the prepared trays with enough space between them.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until lightly golden brown and leave to cool down. completely.
Hello Everyone, I hope that your day has been well.
Today I’m sharing these are cute little cookies I made recently. They are a great snack to have throughout the day and they taste delicious when slightly warm from the oven. The center is nice and soft and they are not too sweet either. I packed a few of these for my work lunch and had them in the afternoon which was perfect. This recipe is super quick to make and can be kept for up to 3 day in an airtight container.
Recipe: Cocoa walnut cookies (makes 15)
55g caster sugar
135g plain flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
40g walnuts, crushed
Heat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with parchment paper.
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and creamy.
Sift in the flour and cocoa powder, add the walnuts and mix until it forms a soft dough.
Use a tsp to equally distribute the dough, form into a ball using your hands and flatten onto the tray.
Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes and leave to cool before serving.
This recipe is definitely for the coconut lovers. A quick recipe that is easy to prepare and only takes 10-15 minutes in the oven depending on how golden you would like them to be. I also thought these would make a really nice homemade gift for friends or family members. Whilst we are still in somewhat of a lockdown and we can’t see people as freely as we would like, why not bake some cookies and post them to loved ones. The recipe makes quite a lot depending on how big/small you want them to be and they will keep for a few days in an air tight container.
These cookies are great to make with kids because the recipe is simple and a perfect treat with a cup of tea! Also, the desiccated coconut is a great source of fibre.
Recipe: Coconut cookies (makes 28)
130g caster sugar
100g desiccated coconut
170g self-raising flour
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line two trays with baking paper.
Cream the butter and the sugar together until pale and fluffy.
Add the egg, mixing well. Then stir in the desiccated coconut and flour.
Mix well to combine everything together.
The mixture will be quite soft so use a tablespoon to scoop out small balls and place on the tray.
Place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden.
I have previously mentioned about reducing sugar in the things I bake and these biscuits only contain maple syrup and raisins for sweetness. They are quite plain but this make me realise how much added sugar is in processed products. These biscuits are quite dry so they would be perfect for dipping into your tea!!
Recipe: Mini Oat raisin Biscuits (makes 12)
50g plain flour
1/2 baking powder
Pinch of cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp milk or milk alternative
Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Combine all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Melt the butter, syrup and 3 tablespoons of milk together, pour into the bowl and mix together until a dough forms.
The dough might be a little stiff so you could add a little more milk, otherwise roll out onto a lightly floured surface and use a cutter to cut out the biscuit shapes.
Place on the baking tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes and leave to cool on a wire rack before eating.
