Wholewheat Chocolate Filled Croissants – A Delight to Bake

There are some recipes which never make to my wish list, Croissant being one among them. Tons of layers of butter and white flour simply does not motivate me to try these baked goodies at home. And we often end up in buying the same off the shelves from a nearby bakery for my children who love these crisp bakes. I almost brushed off this month’s Daring Bakers challenge aside when I saw Croissants on it, but thanks to Sarah who prompted me to bake them at home with her easy recipe presentation.

Fruit & Nuts Cookie Bars – An Easy Dessert and a Perfect Festive Sweet Recipe

Celebrations never end in India, just when I thought that the hectic months of festivals are over, Diwali is round the corner. Time to indulge in sweets and savories again. I love to make sweets which are easy to prepare without compromising on good taste, my time & of course health. And I am planning to bake cookies or goodies which are light on sugar and oil instead of making those time consuming traditional Indian sweets this festive season.

The generous support that most of the bloggers shower for each other is commendable.

Banana, Oatmeal & Wholewheat Bread – A Healthy Breakfast Loaf

On any normal day my freezer stock more overripe and blackened bananas than ice cubes, more so because I like baking with bananas and love banana smoothies as a filling breakfast treat and always end up buying extra for the same. This Eggless Banana & Oatmeal Wholewheat Bread was yet another extremely moist and delightful bake for our Sunday breakfast. Since I did not get time to de frost the banana in the morning, I grated the banana and was happy to see a fluffy and evenly baked bread. Grated frozen banana did the magic here!

Peanut Butter Fudge with Nuts & Caramel Topping

A sweet indulgence – making Fudge is very common during festivals and many religious ceremonies in India. Though Wiki defines it as a western confectionery, for me a fudge is what completes any Indian festivity as long as I remember. From the humble melt-in-mouth Besan ki chakki (chickpea flour fudge) to the more exotic Kaju Katlis (cashew fudge) Indian festivals are incomplete without these goodies. With loads of sugar, butter and milk to go into making these fudge, these goodies are truly a sinful indulgence!

Peanut butter fudge is high on calories but if eaten in moderation it could provide all the health benefits attached with peanuts in your diet. These Nutty Peanut butter Fudges are highly addictive and a word of caution is to keep a tab on the number of times you open your refrigerator 🙂

Two Easy Muffin Top Cookies – Mango Oats & Mixed Fruit Chocolate Chips

I like to add plenty of fresh fruits in my baking which could be very intimidating at times, as the extra juices from the fruits could easily ruin the texture of the baked goodies. And if it is a cookie in baking quest it becomes all the more difficult to get a perfect crisp and crumbly finish with fresh fruits in it. Muffin Top cookies is the perfect answer to it! A cross between a muffin and a cookie these baked goodies are soft & chewy due to high liquid content of fruit mix in them.

Truffles – A Few Healthy & Easy Dessert Recipes

Chocolate, cream and nuts go hand in hand to make this soft and rich dessert Truffles which are an epitome of indulgence. Traditionally Truffles are made with loads of chocolate and heavy cream which makes it a melt-in-mouth treat. I have tried that version also but did not like it much, as the buttery and rich taste could not gel well with my palate. The Truffles I often make has plenty of nuts, dried fruits and digestive biscuits in it. Cocoa powder and the drinking chocolate somewhat stimulate the original recipe which demands cream & chocolate in it.

These Truffle versions may not exactly taste like the real ones but then they are definitely a step ahead of their counterparts in terms of nutrition and I don’t need to keep a count upon them 🙂

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cookies

It has been long since I baked cookies, the last I baked was Almond & Ragi or Finger Millet cookies which has been liked and tried out by a few blogger friends. And when I joined the secret recipe club on Amanda’s blog and was given Tami’s blog to choose my recipe from, it took me no time to select a cookie for the same. I got this lovely Chocolate & Peanut butter cookies from her blog which she tried from Amanda’s blog.

Mango & Banana Bread – Season’ First Mango Bake

Mango fever is catching up slowly, what with the markets adorned with these plump and juicy yellow fruits filling up spaces in most of the fruit shops. Though the exotic ones are yet to appear on the shelves, the local mango varieties which are not as flavorful and sweet as the former, are happily bridging up the gap. Bought my first crop of sweet and juicy mangoes of this season yesterday. After devouring the king of fruits to the heart’ ful, wanted to bake something with the rest. Moist and extremely flavorful, this Mango and banana loaf is very soft & supple with a yellow tint and subtle taste of mangoes in it.

Ragi Cookies – A Delicate, Crisp and healthy Treats

Baking is a great way to enjoy certain food ingredients which otherwise never make to our dinning table too often. Most of the days the meal is either veggies with lentils & chapattis or rice recipes with accompaniments. Some of these wonder foods hardly get included into my menu, unless I shun my laziness and make or bake something out of them 🙂 Ragi or finger millet is one such food ingredients, I love to bring it to my table often. And this time this humble grain Ragi got transformed into these crisp and scrumptious cookies with an extra dose of chocolate chips. These cookies added as a quick dessert last night with a generous spoon of Nutella spread over them.
