These cookies are sweet, crisp, comforting and GOLDEN! They have crunch from the pecans, crumbliness from the oats, sweetness from sugar and tiny hint of cinnamon. I just love the combination of pecan and oatmeal! Maple syrup would also work with these flavours beautifully. I used white sugar with demerara sugar, you can substitute it with dark brown sugar for slightly deeper caramelised flavour, it […]

Baked Falafel Balls

I live in Israel where falafel is wildly available and you can find options from gluten free to coated and spicy versions. Despite the variety I’m still looking for a all-good-for-you falafel and decided to take it as a mission at home. These baked falafels are gluten free and you can make them vegan by replacing the egg with vegan substitute such as soaked flax […]

It’s been a while since my last post, and the recipe I’m about to share is not quite new. I’ve made these brownies numerous times – even made a gluten free version for my sister couple weeks ago, using buckwheat flour. The reason why I haven’t shared the recipe before is simply that they are usually long gone by the time I get my camera ready. This […]

While I find making perfect chocolate chip cookies very challenging, this cookie recipe with cocoa pebbles (chocolate flavoured crisp rice cereal bits) came out absolutely cookielicious!  We rarely have cereal at home and I think this might be the first time we have sugar coated cereal, which I bought particularly for cookie making purposes.

They may get a bit hard when rewarmed and therefore […]
