A little bit not ordinary cookies. You can’t taste zucchini, just it’s green skin says that cookies has a secret in side. Next time I will use quick cooking oats, because now I used old fashioned and eating cookies I could feel hard oats.

Cukinijų ir aguonų keksiukai

Poppy seed zucchini muffins

If you still have zucchini, you should bake these muffins. They are moist as all baking with zucchini, but poppy seed gives some new flavour.

Rice cakes with vegetables

Last weekend, while my children were sleeping in the afternoon, I wanted to bake something sweet. But I was angry at my self, because I didn’t know what can I bake. So I started to browse in my computer looking for something suitable. And I saw these cakes. I decided to make them. I know, that they’re not sweet, but I had everything they needed in my fridge. I just didn’t make baskets out of rice, just did two layer cakes. And they tasted very good. At first I was afraid that my hubby will miss meat in them, but I was wrong 🙂

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

One more cake with zucchini. Really great and moist. I didn”t have chocolate chips, but I didn”t miss them in the cake. Maybe with these chips the cake would be more delicious, but also more sinful 🙂

Puffed rice with Mars bars

I use less and less ingredients to do something sweet 🙂 Now I used only three ingredients. Next time I’ll try to use breakfast crisp balls. Mars bars is very good when you don’t want to waste time unfolding butter scotches. And it gives the taste between butterscotch and chocolate. But we likes this sweet a lot – disappeared in minutes.

Kama flour cookies with chocolate

This time I used whole spelt flour, just because whole wheat four I couldn’t get in our store. And measured everything in grams because it’s more convenient for me. I was surprised that I had to use more flour that it was noted in original recipe. Maybe it’s because of spelt flour. So I suggest to add spelt or wheat flour gradually and to see if more is needed.
