I made chocolate chip cookies numerous times during my pregnancy. It’s crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I like the use of coarse sea salt in the recipe, it gives a little bit of texture and is just enough savory to balance the sweetness. The brown sugar adds depth to the cookie that isn’t too sweet. You’ll have to try the recipe, you won’t be disappointed.
It’s the holiday season and granola is a fun treat to make to share with your friends and family. It can be packaged in cute mason jars for gifting and the best part is that’s easy to make. This holiday granola is punched up with aromatic nutmeg and cinnamon which are are the perfect holiday spices. Pecans, cranberries, dates, maple syrup and white chocolate chips adds texture and a touch of sweetness to the granola. The scent of it baking just makes the house smell festive.
Blueberry Almond Biscotti is so easy to make and they require very few ingredients. Many of the ingredients are regular things that you will find in your pantry, such as butter, flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder, extract and some sort of dried fruit or nuts. It’s simple to make but it does requires time and patience since it is twice baked after all. Derrick loves blueberries and almonds, so I thought I would incorporate those into the biscotti. It’s a great combination and it’s a fun treat anytime of the day.
Easy recipe for Coconut Mango Granola. It’s full of dried fruit such as coconut, mangoes, cranberries and pineapples. The almonds add another layer of crunch and the maple syrup and brown sugar adds sweetness. This granola is great with yogurt, milk, ice cream or just straight up.
