Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies (No Butter)

Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies … I’ve made similar cookies before, but tried something new this time, instead of using butter, I made them with coconut oil with the thought that they would stay a little more chewy than crunchy. The trick though is that you absolutely have to let them chill completely after forming and before making, otherwise you will have a complete mess on your hands. Turned out pretty yummy, if I do say so myself!

Toffee Pecan Brownie Bites

I thought that I would do a quick and easy giveaway this week, using my all-around go-to brownie recipe, and this time add toffee bits and toasted pecans.

Chocolate Dipped Toffee Pecan Shortbread Cookies

Lovely little cookies! And a breeze to make, even if you don’t have cookie cutters handy. These are one of these aorts where you roll the cookie dough into a log and then slice, after chilling in the fridge for a while. These are so good, I might have to add them to the Christmas Cookie rotation some year (though they are very typically American, so may not meet the criteria of “old world German Christmas Cookies”. We shall see!

Banana Bread Doughnuts with Maple Glaze and Walnuts

Hey, it’s National Doughnut Day! (June 2) and for once I actually thought to have the ingredients to make doughnuts in the house on the correct day. These are “healthy”, if there is such a thing… no refined sugar in the them (yes, in the glaze, but the doughnuts themselves only have maple syrup to sweeten). Super delicious straight out of the oven and my flat smells amazing!
