Rhubarb, Apple and Coconut Crisp

When I saw some nice fresh rhubarb in the market, I immediately grabbed a few stems. I didn’t have a clear idea of what to do with it, but also didn’t want to let it stand for too long. My solution was to make a version of my “usual” fruit crisp (recipe can be found HERE) with it. Continue reading

Flourless Banana, Peanut Butter and Coconut Cookies, with Chocolate Drizzle

Flourless Coconut, Peanut Butter and Banana Cookies, Ronit PensoThese tasty and chewy cookies started with a minor disappointment: I’ve tried one of the popular recipes for flourless peanut butter cookies (the ones that contain only peanut butter, sugar (or sweetener) and an egg), and the result was not as exciting for me as it was for a lot of the online reviewers.

However, by then I was already in “flourless peanut butter recipe” mood, so I started to add “this and that” to the original recipe. The cookies here are the result of that process.
They are tasty on their own right, but the chocolate drizzle adds another layer of flavor, which goes so well with all the ingredients.
