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.
This is a nice recipe, not to sweet but great for a treat! I love how the light coating of icing sugar adds that extra sweetness and how soft these cookies are. They taste amazing straight from the oven when slightly warm and remind me of brownies but not quite as gooey on the inside. These cookies also look really cool with colour contrast of the super dark cocoa powder against the crinkle effect from the icing sugar. I always love baking and carrying some to work for that midday snack or pick me up.
Recipe: Crinkle cookies (makes 10)
30g cocoa powder
45g soft brown sugar
45g caster sugar
30ml vegetable oil
90g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp icing sugar
Combine the cocoa powder and sugars together in a large bowl.
Mix in the oil and egg until smooth.
Sieve in the flour and baking powder to form a smooth dough, put in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with baking powder.
Use a tablespoon to scoop out the dough, roll with your hands to form a ball, flatten and cover with icing sugar then place in the baking tray.
Repeat, until all of the mixture is used up and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Leave to cool slightly before eating.
We all have lazy days which is why I don’t mind using a cookie mix every once in a while. When I made these I was craving something a little sweet, whenever you are short for time or feeling lazy it’s the perfect option. These cookies were super simple to make, as you can imagine and only took 12 minutes to bake in the oven. I did leave them in for a few minutes longer to give the cookies that extra crunch, but they were still very delicious. They are definitely a treat and great for that pick me up work snack!
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.
Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog and happy World Baking Day to all of my fellow bakers.
I’ve been trying to stick to a strict posting schedule but I think it’s time to switch things up a little and get back to how I used to post, which was a little more spontaneous but still with structure!
Baking is one of my favourite hobbies, and has been for so many years. It’s one of those activities I do that is so relaxing and therapeutic regardless of what it is that I am baking. Years back, I used to love baking sweet things because I had a bit of a sweet tooth (which I probably still do) but as I’m getting older I’m trying to bake things that are slightly healthier and I’m also trying to experiment with a range of different ingredients. I think the food world has become quite innovative depending on what your interests are but it’s great because there’s something for everyone, regardless of your health, diet or lifestyle.
I don’t plan to bake anything today so I thought I’d share a few of my favourite bakes over the years. Enjoy!
