Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Wholewheat Cookies – A Melt-In-Mouth Crispy Bake

A lot has been going around with school working in full swing for children and the AFBHLS series on Lite Bite. My drafts which are already brimming with recipes and pictures is what I count on when there is less time to bake. Cookies are the most easiest of goodies which could be baked with very few ingredients in a shortest possible time.

I baked these Peanut butter wholewheat cookies at my mom’s place on her demand, to impress her neighbors who were eager to meet her food blogger daughter! She watched me baking these cookies and called her friends for evening tea. I could not get chocolate chips there and replaced the same with a handy Fruit & Nut Vochelle chocolate bar. And needless to say these peanut butter cookies made me a star of her colony 🙂

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 🙂

Baklava – A Sweet Indulgence with Wheatgerm and Healthy Nuts & Fruits

Never thought I would ever bake a Baklava and post it on Lite Bite, till I got to see the Daring Baker challenge of this month. A classic Greek specialty baked with flaky phyllo dough, stuffed with nuts and soaked in sugar syrup, yes I avoided it for all the good reasons, refined flour, loads of butter and the sugar syrup to name a few.

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.

Cinnamon rolls – A Healthy Twist with Palm Sugar, honey and walnuts

Cinnamon rolls are a very common breakfast feast in many European counties. A soft and flavorful yeast bun/roll I would love to munch upon any time of the day. Though the lazy & the busy will find it a bit tough nut to crack, which includes me too 🙂 As the resting hours are really intimidating and test your patience levels to the full! But the end results are sure to make you ecstatic.

To make these cinnamon rolls loaded with nutrients I added Palm sugar instead of the regular white sugar. Honey, walnuts, cinnamon and wholewheat are the other contestants fighting for their place in the health chart of these cinnamon rolls. Palm sugar gave a very caramelized and lovely flavors to the rolls.

Party Menu – Refreshing Yogurt Rice

Yogurt rice is the most relishing recipe I discovered after coming to South India. Till then curd was just a tall glass of Lassie or a delicate dessert Srikhand. Only after getting married I did come to know that the humble Curd can also be transformed into a very delicious and healthy meal! And like my hubby for many people down here, no meal is complete without a small ladle of creamy curd rice. Quite easy to make this refreshing dish adorns many a lunchboxes of office goers and school kids.

An Easy Steamed Eggless Traditional Christmas Cake

The rich and heavy traditional Steamed Christmas Pudding or cake is a delicacy hard to resist. The long hours of steaming are intimidating, but the wait is worth a million.

The heady aromas of flavorful spices, exotic nuts, dried fruits, brandy, and fruit juices make this steamed Christmas cake almost irresistible. Quite easy to make, this egg less steamed cake can be stored in a cool dry place for several weeks or even months. Wish I could also store it for a few days, let alone weeks and months and devour the infused flavors of the spices in it. Alas.. every time I make this pudding, it goes to the Hall of fame the very same day 🙁

Easy Eggless Wheat Germ Muffins

Wheat Germ is one among the precious food ingredients which often fight for a place in my refrigerator. Blueberries, black current, prunes are some of the few contenders. Since getting these exotic foods is difficult here, I normally buy them in large quantities whenever I get a chance to do so.

I dry roast these Wheat germs and store them in a zip lock inside the refrigerator. These then get into my baking, porridge, chapattis, chutneys and various other recipes. Wheat germ gives a beautiful nutty flavor to the dishes.
