Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

My little one was having a play date at his friend’s house. I wanted to bake something to take along. Peanut butter is one of his favorites so I decided to use it. I also checked with his friends’ parents to see if they had any allergies and they had none. As usual I was browsing my favorite recipe website, Taste of Home and landed on this recipe. I modified it quite a bit like using quick-cooking oats and whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour, coconut palm sugar instead of brown sugar, egg replacer powder for the eggs and added in some dried cranberries too. The cookies turned out GREAT! Everybody loved this peanut butter oatmeal cookies and I was drenched in a shower of compliments. Are you ready to get drenched too?

Whole Wheat Bran Flakes Cookies

I have been baking quite a lot of muffins over the past few weeks. So I wanted to try some cookies this time. I have been storing bran flakes crumbs and saw that it had collected considerably. That’s when I jumped over here to look for some recipe ideas and found this cookie recipe. I had all the ingredients in hand and got down to the job right away. The cookie started out crispy but did turn chewy after a while. I wanted to add some toasted walnuts too but then I wouldn’t be able to pack it for my son’s lunch. So if you are not worried about nut allergies do add some toasted nuts for an extra crunch.

Eggless Christmas Fruitcake Cookies

I had about a cup of candied peel leftover and was looking for recipes to use it up and found this easy to bake fruitcake cookies. I already have a recipe for coconut fruitcake cookies but that doesn’t use butter or flour. It’s more like coconut macaroons. But these are like any other regular cookies which involves creaming of butter and sugar. It doesn’t need any fancy ingredients. Whatever dried fruits or nuts you have in your pantry can be used to make these rich, buttery cookies. These cookies are not crispy. It’s chewy and not very sugary too!

No Bake Fruit Nut Cookie

We usually buy All Bran buds and flakes at our house. It’s what my husband has for breakfast most of the days. Me not so much especially that I’m on a hypoallergenic diet for the past couple of days. It so happens that however you try to store the flakes cereal carefully, you end up having a lot of crumbs which nobody wants in their bowl of cereal. So I started putting the “end-of-the-pack” crumbs in a container and by the end of the month I had so much of it and was looking for ways to use it up. I have already baked some double chocolate muffins and these vegan blueberry bran muffins. This time I didn’t have time to bake for the kids’ get-together, so I wanted to make something pretty quickly and also wanted to incorporate the cereal crumbs into the recipe.
