Walnut and Raw Cacao Cookies

I recently realized that, while I use walnuts in various recipes, I don’t use them as often when baking cookies. With this in mind, I was set to create cookies with walnuts as the main ingredient. Continue reading

Lemon Oatmeal Cookies with Dried Apricots and Pecans

The following tasty cookies are another version of my earlier all-oats gluten-free cookies (find the recipe HERE).
This time, I decided to rely even more on both oats flour and rolled oats, instead of using nut meal in the dough. I chose to add a lemony flavor to the cookies, which worked well with the other additions, of chopped pecans and dried apricots. Continue reading

Carrots, Almonds, Coconut and Golden Raisins Breakfast Bars

While I mostly prefer a protein-based breakfast, I also like to have other options every now and then. The following super-healthy bars are a good example of that: they are loaded with high fiber ingredients, fairly low on sugar and fat, and are a great tasty way to start the day. Continue reading

Vanilla Scented Chouquettes

Chouquettes are the humble, no fuss, relatives of the more stylish Profiteroles, (or as they are known in the US, Cream Puffs); as they are made from the very same dough – Pâte à Choux. Éclair pastries are also made from this dough. Unlike both, Chouquettes are not filled with any cream and are meant to be eaten as a simple snack, soon after baking, or at least on the same day.
