Recipe #35: Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

No bake desserts? Uh yes please! If you want a nice treat in a pinch, you should try these cookies. This no-bake snack reminds me of the trail mix granola bites I made a little while back (recipe #20 here). These types of desserts are just so great to make and keep in the fridge…

Recipe #17: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s a pretty big coincidence that I have 2 peanut butter recipes in a row but I’m not complaining because I love peanut butter (this was yesterday’s peanut tofu bowl). These cookies were so easy to make and tasted good. They are pretty similar to a basic peanut butter cookie recipe (sugar, peanut butter, egg)…

Peanut Butter & Banana Cookies

Peanut butter – yum. Banana – yum. Together – even better. Peanut butter and banana a pretty classic and delicious combination.

Ginger Molasses Cookies

It’s a recipe from Kathy Patalsky’s blog (Kathy’s Cookie Recipe). I love using this recipe but I always make a couple changes to it. I never put the…

Recipe #27: Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are one of the simplest snacks to make. You mix all the ingredients in one bowl, form them into balls, flatten with a fork and pop them in the oven. Dessert is ready in about 20 minutes, start to finish. I used a 1 tbsp measure to make the dough balls and…

Double Chocolate Cookies

The weekend is a time to do baking – at least that’s how I feel. I found this recipe in the newspaper and I was so proud cause I followed it to a tee which is something I don’t usually do.. I like to improvise usually. So those are chocolate chocolate chip cookies (double chocolate)….

St Pattys Pinwheel Cookies

I’m going to a saint patrick’s day party this weekend so I wanted to do a little baking for the occasion. I’ve always wanted to make pinwheel cookies because I’ve never done it before. I knew it would be a little time consuming because of the rolling and freezing between stages, but I’m pretty happy with…
