Chocolate chip cookies with nuts and apricots

The first time I baked these cookies with my daugther. They were very delicious and very sweet. So next time I used less sugar, but they spread less while baking. Here I give you proportions with less sugar because I like when cookies are cookies and not candies 🙂 By the way, when I used hazelnuts my hubby said to leave them at home (didn’t let to take them to my work) 🙂 So it says everything about the taste of these cookies.

Chocolate chip cookies with nuts and apricots

Time needed:
Yields: 30 cookies
Calories: 98 kcal / 1 serving

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup (110 g) butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla sugar
  • 2/3 cup nuts (I suggest hazelnuts), coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup dried apricots, coarsely chopped (or other dried fruits)
  • 75 g chocolate, coarsely chopped

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 175°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In another bowl mix butter, sugar and vanilla sugar until light and creamy. Beat in egg. Then gradually blend in the flour mixture.
  • Add in nuts, apricots and chocolate chips and stir until they are well-distributed in the batter.
  • Shape cookie dough into balls and arrange on prepared baking sheet, leaving about 5 cm between the cookies to allow for spread. Spress cookie balls with fingers to flatten.
  • Bake for 11-14 minutes, until cookies are light golden brown on the edges.
  • Allow to cool on baking sheet for 3-4 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

Greitas Kalėdinis vaisinis pyragas ir kava

Quick Christmas fruit cake

This one was a little bit too sweet for me, but with unsweetened coffee it was great. You can substitute dried fruits with you favourites. For example I substituted some prunes with dried apricots and dates, also some of raisins substituted with dried cranberries. It’s really your choice and use all your dried fruit reserves.

Lazdyno riešutai kakavoje

Cocoa dusted hazelnuts

Once girls from Kaunas invited me to join small party called “50 cocoa shades”. I scrolled a lot of recipes and tried three of them, but only one was the one (others were good enough to eat, but just it). These nuts are very contagious – you start to nibble and forget to stop. They are not too sweet, you perfectly taste hazelnuts, so I liked them very very much.

Šokoladinis jogurtas

Chocolate yoghurt

Monday is a hard day, but anyway I want to share with you this dessert recipe. It’s so simple and quick. My all family enjoy it. But we all agreed that with milk chocolate it’s better, because dark chocolate gives some bitterness and yoghurt becomes unsweet for our tastes.

Burokėlių, anakardžių ir fetos sūrio salotos

Beetroot, cashew and feta salads

Don’t know why but this autumn I’m hooked on beetroots. Every weekend I boil some beetroots and through the week I incorporate them in our dishes. And then story repeats. When I wanted for dinner something light, I prepared these salads. By the way, this recipe in the book is called carpaccio, but I think it’s more salads, and the name is more usual and not so fancy 🙂 . Family girls enjoy them, the big boy ate them and just said that more balsamic vinegar would be better, and the little boy as always, prepared some theater and then ate them, just without enjoyment. So I remember these salads as they are fit for girls 🙂 And I prepared very similar salads with hazelnuts, and they were very good too. So as always – don’t be afraid to experiment and correct ingredients by your refrigerator or cupboard products.

Bananine granola be cukraus ir be aliejaus

Banana granola sugar-free and oil-free

nother name of this granola should be “It can’t be more healthy” 🙂 Now almost every sweet is too sweet for me, that’s why I liked this granola – it has only a mild sweetness. But making this granola you should use really overripe banana.
