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 [wm_watermark src=""]

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.

Double Chocolate Cookies [wm_watermark src=""]

It’s been a while since I baked anything because these days my hands are full with my two and a half year old son. The once very independent and “I-couldn’t-care-less about-you” attitude son has become so clingy, wanting my undivided attention literally 24/7. I wish that it’s just a phase. I managed to bake these double chocolate cookies in the little time that he was napping last week. So easy to put together these cookies are very big on taste and was devoured by the kids I had baked it for. I found the recipe here and made few changes to make it egg free. I usually whip together the egg replacer powder and water together until its frothy and then add it with the rest of the wet ingredients. This time I wanted to try adding the egg replacer and water directly to the creamed butter mixture and it did work. The cookies turned out great. The original recipe had all-purpose flour in it which I replaced with whole wheat pastry flour and nobody found it different at all.

Oatmeal Cranberry Zucchini Cookies [wm_watermark src=""]

I wanted to bake something healthy for the kids get-together we have every month. The kids come prepared with a topic already chosen and present it. We also organize other activities which they actually enjoy doing while in fact they are learning a thing or two. Another incentive for them is enjoying a variety of snacks and I try my best not to miss the opportunity to try new recipes. When I was looking for recipes, I found this cookie recipe. I made some changes to make it egg free and accommodate the zucchini I had, instead of the apples mentioned in the original recipe. Just like blueberries, I love baking with zucchini. It melds beautifully in most of the recipes and gives the baked goods a moist texture while boosting the nutritional value. This oatmeal cookie recipe is no exception to it and turned out delicious. Needless to say, it was a hit with the children and they kept asking for more. These cookies won’t get crispy because of the zucchini. Instead it has a cake like chewy texture.
