Chunky Nuts, Seeds & Fruit Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Chunky Nuts, Seeds & Fruit Chocolate Chip Cookies – super moist and chocolatey these amazing cookies have become our family’s favorite sweet treat!

Chunky Nuts, Seeds & Fruit Chocolate Chip Cookies

I started making these chunky cookies a few weeks before Christmas and I believe I’ve made them at least 6-7 times already. I know, that’s a lot of cookies but they’re seriously delicious, I warn you! πŸ™‚ And not to mention how simple they are, easy as pie, really! πŸ™‚

I’ve never been a big cookie fan to be honest but I admit these have become my favorite treats recently. They’re super moist (lots of butter!), chocolatey and just perfect.

The first few batches I made were chocolate chip only – these were the kids’s favorite. Recently, I’ve been adding nuts, seeds and dried fruit, apart from the chocolate, and this updated version has become my favorite. I just can’t get enough of them!

I’ve used some raw cashew nuts, pumpkin seeds, goji berries & cranberries. And for the chocolate chips I used the kids’s leftover chocolate Santas. They had way too many of these so this is a great way to reuse them and not waste. Whou would waste chocolate anyway? πŸ™‚

Chunky Nuts, Seeds & Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies taste even better with coffee/milk/tea. I can probably get half a dozen down with some milk or coffee or even tea. But hey, they’ve got some raw nuts, seeds and dried fruit so that makes them half-healthy? πŸ™‚ Just joking! There’s nothing wrong in indulging yourself a bot (or a lot). These are definitely worth every calorie. πŸ™‚

Oreo Hot Chocolate

Happy Wednesday all! Today’s recipe is Oreo Hot Chocolate – made with 85% dark chocolate this is not a regular hot chocolate – it’s a pure delight.

Oreo Hot Chocolate

It’s topped up with whipped cream and a few Oreo biscuits, oh and a chocolate bar on a side, you know, just in case.Β πŸ™ˆΒ I’m not gonna talk about health benefits and calories (duh, obviously) here but this will definitely warm you up.Β πŸ˜€Β And it’s a real treat. I honestly, couldn’t finish the whole glass, even though I’m a true chocolate lover, that’s how intense it was. I should’ve probably made them smaller or may be divided the chocolate between three glasses. Anyway, this was by far the best hot chocolate I’ve ever tried.

Oreo Hot Chocolate

All you have to do is to simply melt some good quality dark chocolate with milk, simple as that. Make sure to use chocolate with at least 75% cocoa solids, less than that it’s not really dark, as far as I know. I’m sure it’ll taste amazing with milk chocolate too though.Β πŸ˜‹

This recipe was inspired by my recent trip to Belgium. I don’t think I’ve actually mention about that here, oops. πŸ˜†Β So, yes, in a few words, we spent (my whole family) a few days in Brussels enjoying the city and some great food. I also had an amazing hot chocolate there but to be honest this one is even better, probably because it’s even more intense and chocolatey. There’s no secret to make a good hot chocolate really – simply use good quality chocolate! Or I might use a secret ingredient, who knows?Β πŸ˜„

Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Milk Chocolate Flapjack with Goji Berry, Cranberries & Seeds – another Christmas inspired recipe that is so tasty I simply can’t get enough of it.Β πŸ™ˆ

Milk Chocolate Flapjack with Goji Berry, Cranberries & Seeds

Not only these flapjack bites are generously soaked in butter but they’ve got a thick layer of milk chocolate. At least the oats, dry fruit and seeds are on the healthy side so I think it balances things out.Β πŸ˜†

I used cranberries, goji berries, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. The result was crunchy, sweet and buttery flapjack bites – perfect as a snack, dessert or whenever you crave something sweet and crunchy.

They are suitable for freezing which I did so I still have some of these beauties left. I munch on them almost everyday. But seriously, what’s not to love about them.

Milk Chocolate Flapjack with Goji Berry, Cranberries & Seeds

Oh, I forgot to mention.. I also added some raw cashew nuts in the mixture and desiccated coconut. You can really add any seeds, nuts or dry fruit you fancy. And did I mention there’s no cooking involved? Yay! What you have to do is to simply mix all the ingredients together, empty in a tray and freeze for a couple of hours. That’s all, simple as that.

But we don’t complain, we really enjoy trying what we’ve made, especially the kids. And that’s what Christmas is all about, isn’t it

Have you guys started planning Christmas yet? I’ve always liked to plan in advance, but now, especially with the kids, I start organising stuff quite early. I’m quite an organiser, let me tell you. πŸ˜„I have almost completed my Christmas gift list which is amazing (I usually waited a week before Christmas) so I can focus on other important stuff, or let’s admit it, the most important – Food 🍽 What’s Christmas without some indulgent food.

The combination of sweet Brioche bun, mild cheese & salty brisket works so well. Just add some crunchy salad and enjoy! I didn’t make any sides for these sandwiches but chips will be great, or even sweet potatoes.

Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins

Happy Saturday all! Today’s recipe is Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins – and let the festive season begins! πŸ˜€

Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins

As you can see these Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins are loaded with chocolate, like lots of it so that’s enough of a good reason for me to make them this festive season. They’re one of the simplest muffins I’ve ever made. It only takes 15 minutes for them to cook. I think it actually takes more time to make them look like Christmas trees. I used some desiccated coconut hoping to make them look like snowy Christmas trees. πŸ™‚

It’s a great way t get your kids involved and leave them to decorate the muffins. They probably won’t look like Christmas trees at the end but that’s ok. πŸ˜€ This reminds me, I should make some Christmas cookies as my kids love decorating them.

Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins

Mini Kale Pizzas

Happy Thursday guys! Today’s recipe is Mini Kale Pizzas – loaded with veggies & Mozzarella cheese, these green pizzas are perfect for a healthy snack on the go.

Mini Kale Pizzas

Who says pizza can’t be healthy? I recently read an amazing article discussing 26 Science-backed health benefits of kale that I didn’t even know existed. For instance, didΒ you know kale protects your DNA and helps keep your mood up? I really recommend reading the article and hopefully we start using this leafy green cabbage more often. I’m sure that even those of you that are not so keen on kale would give it a go after reading about its amazing benefits to your health. You can find the article hereΒ https://healthyline.com/health-benefits-of-kale/

Mini Kale Pizzas

Just look at this gooey centre! I promise the Mozzarella cheese is not that much as it looks. There are lots of other veggies like red peppers, olives, sun-dried tomatoes. Also, I used corn flour (no particular reason, it’s just I find it tastier than the white one). The recipe is super simple to make and at the same time tastes delicious! Not to mention the benefits of kale.

Mini Kale Pizzas

My kids actually enjoyed these Mini Kale Pizzas too. All I had to say was ‘pizza’. They didn’t mind the greenish colour which was great!

Mushroom & Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Happy weekend guys! Today’s recipe is Mushroom & Cauliflower Crust Pizza – topped up with salami, melted cheese, peppers & cherry tomato, this gluten-free pizza is bursting with flavours!

This pizza is like no other! The crust is not as dry as the original pizza crust (no flour, remember). This mushroom & cauliflower crust is super moist and soft and almost falling apart so I recommend using a fork. Does that make it a tart? I’m not sure to be honest. I thought it’s more like a pizza. πŸ™‚ Whatever you choose to call it, this meal is delicious. It’s gluten-free too. I think I already mention that. :-)Bear in mind though that many of the salami & sausages contain gluten so check first if you’ve got intolerance.

It took me about 5 minutes to blitz the crust ingredients and place the crust to bake in the oven. In 20 minutes the crust is done, all you have to do is to arrange the topping and cook for another 10 minutes. Not only tasty and healthy but quite simple!

Mushroom & Cauliflower Crust Pizza

For the pizza crust I used eggs, Parmesan cheese, passata seasoning and of course cauliflower and mushrooms. I simply blitz everything together in my blender, baked the crust, topped it up and bake a few more minutes. From all of our family it seemed I was the biggest fan of this pizza so I almost finished it by myself. πŸ™‚

The toppings I used were salami, Emmental cheese (mild Cheddar works too), cherry tomatoes, peppers and some fresh rocket. You can always add more toppings too or skip the salami for a vegetarian version, whatever you fancy, really! πŸ™‚

Mushroom & Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Here’s how to make the Mushroom & Cauliflower Crust Pizza

  • 150g Emmental cheese, grated
  • fresh rocket for serving

Instructions

  2. Mix the pizza crust ingredients in a blender and bake in a greased baking tray for about 20 minutes.

Turkey Breakfast Burgers

Happy Monday guys! Today’s recipe is Turkey Breakfast Burgers – succulent turkey patty , melted Emmental, ripe avocado, roasted red peppers and a fried egg! Mmmmm…It’s just a dream (or it was) πŸ™‚

Turkey Breakfast Burger

Seriously, the colder the weather gets, the higher the calories in my recipes are. πŸ™‚ Just joking, not necessarily. But what I mean is, we all get a craving for a nice warm soup/stew, succulent burger/roast or anything comforting that will warm you up. πŸ™‚ Now, that doesn’t mean we eat such comfort food every day, but the truth is I do make them much more often in the Fall/Winter period than Spring/Summer (I believe most of you do too). πŸ™‚

Turkey Breakfast Burger

Back to this Turkey Breakfast Burger…

I was actually thinking to add hash browns instead of the avocado and roasted pepper but then I wanted to serve it with sweet potato chips so I scratched that out. Also to put the scale a bit on the healthy side I thought It’d be nice to add some ripe avo and peppers. Do they count as your five-a-day? πŸ™‚ Probably not. πŸ™‚ However, they worked amazing with the fried egg and just completed that Breakfast Burger.

Turkey Breakfast Burgers

The whole thing was very simple to make. I admit, this time I fried the burger patties, instead of grilling or baking them. The reason was that I was in a real hurry and of course, I was sure they’ll turn out very juicy and delicious (as they did). If you ask me though, If you’ve got the time, the best way is to grill them, and the tastiest! I’d definitely recommend that. But again, fried are more than delicious too. πŸ™‚
