Itsy Bitsy Chocolate chip Cookies

25 Oct 2010 In: Bake, baking, chocolate, cookies, oats, wholemeal

i made this in bite sizes but in the pic it really looks large! :) Kids have been asking for cookies for a long time. Iwasnted to make a different choc chip cookie and then i came across this.

When i saw this recipe in 101 cookbooks i made it right away with my kids. Made some minor changes. My daughter suggested she wanted to add Hersheys unsweetened cocoa powder so i added 2 tbsps of it. Rest all the same but reduced the sweetness a little bit.

5 ounces good-quality semi-sweet chocolate bar

1 cup wholemeal flour

2 tbsp cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

1/2 cup walnuts, very, very finely chopped

1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup natural cane sugar (or brown sugar)

1 tablespoon organic unsulphured molasses (blackstrap)

1 large egg

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Preheat your oven to 350F degrees, racks in top and bottom third.
  • Line a couple baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Finely chop the chocolate bar into 1/8-inch pieces, more like shavings really. Try to avoid big lumps and chunks, which make flattening out the cookie dough later more difficult.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder,  baking powder, baking soda, salt, oats, walnuts, and shaved chocolate. Set aside.
  • Using a mixer (or by hand) beat the butter until fluffy.
  • Beat in the sugar and mix until it is also light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl once or twice. Beat in the molasses, then the egg, mixing until both are well incorporated, scrape down the sides of the bowl once or twice.
  • Beat in the vanilla. Add the flour mix and stir by hand until the ingredients barely come together into a uniform dough. http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/itsy-bitsy-chocolate-chip-cookies-recipe.html

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

13 Jun 2010 In: Bake, baking, cookies, snack

School holidays sure make you busy! No matter what kids demand a lot of things to eat or should i say they eat a lot of unhealthy snacks at this time. So i opt to make healthier versions at home.  these Big and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies is adapted from Farenheit 350 i made a few changes in the recipe to make it more healthier because i have been baking a lot during the holidays so i didn’t want my kids to eat more sugar and plain flour.

Hot from the oven the first batch i didnt even get to see them lined up properly!! Both of them finished it with in minutes!

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup honey
Cream together until smooth

Add:
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
Whip together until light and fluffy

Stir in:

2 cups flour

1/2 cup  wheat germ
1/2 cup ground flax seeds

½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Drop spoonfuls or half spoonfuls as you want and bake for 7-9 mts at 180 C

If you are making crispy cookies bake longer. My kids like chewy ones so i dont bake them longer.  Also if you are making big ones you might need to bake longer.

The first batch i made was chewy ones the second batch crispy which got burned a bit after baking longer! All the crispy ones are left now and i cant even find a chewy one to eat!

choc chip cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are my kids favorite. They can eat up to 4-5 cookies in one shot.. LOL!  I make them often but before i can take a pic of these they will be finished! My daughter doesn’t even wait for them to cool down she loves them when its warm and the choco chip are meting! (Girls!)

So today a cozy saturday morning everyone are asleep i woke up early and decided to make some of these to surprise them. I could luciky make a batch before all of them woke up and finally take a pic of it!

This recipe is again form my favorite All Recipes And here is the recipe for the Chocolate chip cookies

The changes i made are – I added only 1 cup chocolate chips instead of 2. And i did not melt the chip. I added them straight away. This is a fool proof recipe. I really enjoyed making those.

Chocolate chip cookies!!

16 Mar 2009 In: baking, cookies


After i made the yummy muffins today my daughter said SHE wants to make chocolate chip cookies!!! i said why not? any ways with all the rain the kids was very bored and they had nothing much to do a home. I tried this recipe before but that time i didn’t have any cocoa powder. This time i had it so i followed the exact recipe and it was sooooo chocolaaateeee and wonderful…

ohh forgot… i really did make some changes!!! I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and i added only about half cup of chocolate chips. Also i freezed the dough for 20 mts.
Also my kids wanted to decorate it with some Reese Peanut butter cups and i think the cookies turned out really cute :) not in a perfect shape but they really have a kiddy touch :)
