Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

These Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies are so easy to make and only use 5 ingredients.

These cookies are so easy to make and do not use any added sugar as they are made from peanut butter and chocolate spread, mixed with flour and an egg. So easy! Also because I had been sent some Dairy Milk chocolate with Oreo and peanut butter in my Degustabox Uk recently,

I added a square of this to the centre of each cookie too. This meant that each cookie had a delicious gooey chocolately centre.

To enable me to bake my cookies with no fuss or mess,  and to ensure that they could be removed from the baking tray easily without sticking to it, I used BACOFOIL NON STICK FOIL which is brilliant for allowing me to do just this. In fact it is the ‘Bacofoil Baco-Shake’ magic that allows food to slide off a baking tray with ease: from fishfingers to pizza, from chips to waffles, from cookies to brownies, BACOFOIL NON STICK FOIL is so handy to have in the kitchen, with its magic Bacofoil Baco-Shake ‘powers’. 

It is infact the dull side of the foil which is NON STICK so this is the part that you need to put your food on.

I have a made a little video showing not only how easy these Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies are to make, but how much easier they are to bake using Bacofoil NON STICK FOIL:

Ingredients
  • 150g self raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp chocolate spread
  • Dairy Milk Oreo and Peanut Butter chocolate
Instructions
  1. Pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160oC (fan)
  2. Place all of the ingredients but the Dairy Milk, into a mixing bowl and beat well to combine until a dough is formed
  3. Line a large baking tray with good quality tin foil - I used Bacofoil nonstick foil
  4. Place small balls of the dough onto the tray
  5. Then put a square of the chocolate into the centre of each cookie ball and cover over with the dough
  6. Bake in the oven for 7-9 minutes until golden brown - they will appear a little soft, this is fine as they will harden as they cool down. Leave the cookies on the tray until they are cool to the touch

Very easy and very yummy – these cookies can be made in next to no time and will be eaten just as quickly!

I was sent some Bacofoil for the purpose of a review, it was my decision to include a recipe into my review. The Dairy Milk was included which I received as a Degustabox UK reviewer.

Chicken Vegetable Noodle Soup

Chicken Vegetable Noodle Soup

This easy and tasty Chicken Vegetable Noodle Soup is a take on the classic chicken noodle soup, except I have added carrot and courgette noodles instead of wheat ones.

As a parent to two boys who struggle to eat vegetables that are not hidden inside their food, I am always on the look out for new ways to get them to try vegetables at meal times. Since the recent trend for making spiralized vegetables has taken off, I have to admit that it has not occurred to me to make some and see if Burton and Jenson would actually try some. That was until I was sent a Kenwood (electric) Spiralizer to review.

I was quite excited about trying this out, because I have seen lots of interesting looking recipes using courgetti and other vegetable ‘noodles’, and they always look colourful and tasty. I have to admit that the spiralizer did take a few goes to get to grips with, in order to make perfectly shaped spirals of veg, but this did not take long, after all, practice makes perfect!

I wanted to showcase a recipe using some serialised veggies but it was hard finding one that had not been tried already, afterall I am a little late to the serialised vegetable recipe party! However, I had a light bulb moment eventually, when I had some leftover roast chicken in my fridge and I was feeling a little like I was coming down with a cold. Something that always perks me up is some homemade soup, and I thought I would make some chicken noodle soup, as it does not take long to make. Then, I thought that instead of using actual noodles as per the traditional way of making it, I would replace them with some spiralled carrots and courgette instead.

This soup is my version of a chicken noodle, so I have taken some short cuts, probably as this is how I prefer to cook, and I didn’t have any spring onions so I used a brown onion instead. BUT what I loved about this version, is that it took about 10 minutes to make from start to finish, and by using vegetable noodles it made it a soup that was more nutritious and healthy.

Here is the recipe if you fancy giving it a go

a delicious chicken soup with vegetable noodles that can be made very quickly.

Serves: 3
Ingredients
  • Frylight (or a dash of oil)
  • 1 carrot, spiralized
  • 1 courgette, spiralized
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 75g cooked chicken
  • 1 tsp garlic puree
  • 1 tbsp sweet chili sauce,
  • 2 chicken stock pots
  • 800ml boiling water
Instructions
  1. in a large, non stick pan heat the Frylight/oil and add the onions and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes to soften them
  2. add the garlic and stir
  3. meanwhile, mix the stock pots and sweet chili sauce in the boiling water
  4. add the stock to the onions , then add all of the remaining ingredients and mix well
  5. simmer for about 2-3 minutes - you want the vegetables to still have a bite to them
  6. serve immediately.

I made a video showing how to make this recipe plus a quick demonstration of how the spiralizer works which you can see here

This soup was delicious and I loved how the veg still had a light bite to them, meaning they still contained their goodness and nutrition. Although the boys will not eat soup (yeah, I know, crazy pair!), they have been eating carrot spaghetti which they have been enjoying. Next I will get them to try some courgetti and some butternut squash noodles – but one step at a time with those two.

This Coffee and Walnut Cake is such a classic tea time favourite, and this version contains walnuts in the batter and frosting too.

Coffee and Walnut Cake

My Nanny loves Coffee and Walnut Cake and it is one of her favourite cakes to enjoy with a cup of tea. It was her birthday the other week and she turned 84, and as she was staying with my Mum anyway we arranged for them both to visit me and the boys after school, so , naturally, I thought ~I would make her a birthday cake.
