Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies (vegan, gluten free) / Karamel čoko keksići sa kikiriki maslacem (veganski, bez glutena)

These cookies are so, so good and actually quite healthy. They are vegan, gluten free and depending on the chocolate you use, can also be refined sugar free. The rich caramel taste comes from the date syrup, which I was very excited to try out after scoring it at a health food store. If you don’t have any date syrup, you can totally swap it for honey, date paste or any other sweetener of your choice. You will have to tweak the wet and dry ingredients ratio a bit, though.

IMGP8208

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 20 cookies / 0.10 EUR per cookie / 2.09 EUR for all)

¼ cup date syrup (0.10 EUR)

3 tbsp peanut butter (0.40 EUR)

1 and ½ cups plant based milk (0.60 EUR)

1 and ½ cups oat flour (0.30 EUR)

2 tbsp ground flax seeds (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp baking powder (0.01 EUR)

3 rows of dark chocolate (0.60 EUR)

IMGP8202

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Chop up the chocolate into small squares. In a large bowl, whisk together date syrup, peanut butter and milk until smooth and creamy. Add in oat flour, flax seeds, salt and baking powder. Stir until just combined, then fold in chocolate squares.

Dollop the batter onto prepared baking tray. Be sure to space the cookies a bit, as they will expand a little while they bake. Using a back of a spoon, flatten the cookies down a bit. Bake for 15 minutes, until the cookies are slightly browned.

The cookies are going to be very soft when they come out of the oven, but don’t worry, they will firm up as they cool down. Allow the cookies to cool for about five minutes on their baking tray before transferring to a rack to cool completely. The cookies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-4 days.

Ovi keksići ne samo da su jako ukusni, već su i prilično zdravi. Veganski su, bez glutena, a ovisno o čokoladi koju ćete upotrijebiti, mogu biti i bez rafiniranog šećera. Bogat okus karamele daje im sirup od datulja, koji sam jedva dočekala isprobati nakon što sam ga upecala u jednom dućanu sa zdravom hranom. Naravno, ako nemate sirup od datulja, svakako ga možete zamijeniti medom, pastom od datulja ili kojim drugim zaslađivačem po vašem izboru. Jedino imajte na umu kako ćete vjerojatno trebati i malo prilagoditi omjer mokrih i suhih sastojaka.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20-tak keksića / 0,78 kn po keksu / 13,56 kn za sve)

¼ šalice sirupa od datulja (0,75 kn)

3 žlice kikiriki maslaca (3,00 kn)

1 i ½ šalica veganskog mlijeka (4,50 kn)

1 i ½ šalica zobenog brašna (2,25 kn)

2 žlice mljevenih sjemenski lana (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice praška za pecivo (0,05 kn)

3 reda tamne čokolade (4,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C, a protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. Nasjeckajte čokoladu na male komadiće. U zdjeli pomiješajte sirup od datulja, kikiriki maslac i mlijeko, sve dok smjesa ne bude glatka i kremasta. Dodajte zobeno brašno, lan, sol i prašak za pecivo, pa miješajte dok se sve ne sjedini. U smjesu nježno umiješajte čokoladu.

Smjesu grabite na pripremljen protvan, s time da pazite da keksiće malo razmaknete jer će se mrvicu raširiti kako se budu pekli. Sa stražnjom stranom žlice lagano spljoštite svaki keks. Pecite 15 minuta, dok keksići lagano ne posmeđe.

Keksi će biti prilično mekani kada izađu iz pećnice, ali budite bez brige, očvrsnuti će kako se budu hladili. Pustite keksiće da se jedno pet minuta hlade na protvanu prije nego ih preselite na rešetku i tako ohladite do kraja. Keksi će u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi držati na sobnoj temperaturi 3-4 dana.

Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies (vegan, gluten free) / Karamel čoko keksići sa kikiriki maslacem (veganski, bez glutena)

Walnut Sandwich Cookies / Išleri

These cookies are, hands down, my favorite cookies. They are pretty mainstream in Croatia, but I’ve only managed to successfully make them this year. They do require a bit more work, but make such a cute edition to a holiday table that I decided to tackle with them this year again.

The first time I’ve made these cookies, my egg cream filling was a complete disaster which wouldn’t hold together, so my cookies quickly turned into a hot mess. This year, however, I opted for a thick vanilla pudding filling and that worked like a charm.

IMGP8036

IMGP8038

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 20-30 cookies / 3.83 EUR)

For the cookie batter:

6 tbsp butter, softened at room temperature (0.80 EUR)

4 tbsp vanilla sugar (0.27 EUR)

2 cups ground walnuts (1.07 EUR)

1 cup all-purpose flour (0.07 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1-2 tbsp plant based milk (0.01 EUR)

For the pudding filling:

1 vanilla pudding dry mix of your choice, which normally yields 500 ml of pudding (0.53 EUR)

2 tbsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

1 and ½ cups milk (0.40 EUR)

For the chocolate glaze:

2 rows dark chocolate (0.53 EUR)

1 tbsp butter (0.13 EUR)

IMGP8041

METHOD:

Whisk together butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add in walnuts, flour and salt. Mix until a dough forms and as needed add a bit of plant based milk. I opted for plant based, so the cookies would have a longer shelf life, but you are more than welcome to use dairy milk instead, if you plan on eating them up quickly. Wrap the cookie dough in cling foil and refrigerate for at least an hour, or for 2-3 days in advance.

When ready to bake, remove the dough from fridge and allow it to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes, so it’s easier to roll out. Preheat the oven to 175°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper and cut into desired shapes. I decided to cut mine into two sizes, for a bit of variety. Place the cut cookies on a prepared baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes.

The cookies will still be soft when they come right out of the oven, but don’t worry, they’ll firm up as they cool. Allow the cookies to cool for about 5 minutes on their baking tray, then gently move them to a wire rack to cool completely. At this point you can store the cookies in a cool, dark place for a couple of weeks at least, so they are great to bake in advance.

When ready to assemble the cookie sandwiches, cook a thick pudding, using only about 2/3 of the milk amount recommended on the pudding sachet. Allow pudding to cool down a bit before transferring into a piping bag. Pipe the pudding onto half of the cookies.

To make a chocolate glaze, melt the chocolate with butter. Cover the other half of cookies with melted chocolate, then place them on top of the pudding halves. Store the sandwich cookies in your fridge in an airtight container, where they will keep for up to five days.

Išleri su mi najdraži keksi, a iako su relativno uobičajena vrsta kolača, meni su tek ove godine prvi puta uspjeli. Oko njih možda ima malo više posla, ali su tako lijepi dodatak blagdanskom stolu da sam se odlučila ponovo sa njima uhvatiti u koštac.

Prvi puta kada sam ih radila, krema od jaja mi se nikako nije htjela stisnuti i keksi su na kraju plivali u jajima. Ove godine sam odlučila odmah smanjiti mogućnost takve katastrofe, tako da sam umjesto kreme od jaja išlere odlučila puniti sa gustim pudingom od vanilije.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 20-30 keksa / 28,66 kn)

Za tijesto:

6 žlica maslaca, omekšanog na sobnoj temperaturi (6,00 kn)

4 žlice vanili šećera (2,00 kn)

2 šalice mljevenih oraha (8,00 kn)

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1-2 žlice veganskog mlijeka (0,05 kn)

Za puding kremu:

1 vrećica pudinga od vanilije za 500 ml pudinga (4,00 kn)

2 žlice šećera (0,10 kn)

1 i ½ šalica mlijeka (3,00 kn)

Za čokoladnu glazuru:

2 reda tamne čokolade (4,00 kn)

1 žlica maslaca (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Miješajte maslac i šećer dok ne budu glatki i kremasti. Dodajte orahe, brašno i sol. Miješajte dok se ne formira tijesto, a po potrebi dodajte mrvicu mlijeka. Ja sam se odlučila za vegansko mlijeko kako bi mi suhi keksi mogli dulje stajati, ali vi slobodno upotrijebite obično mlijeko ako mislite kekse brzo pojesti. Tijesto umotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i ostavite u hladnjaku barem sat vremena, ili do 2-3 dana.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, izvadite tijesto iz hladnjaka 10-15 minuta ranije kako bi malo otpustilo i da ga lakše možete razvaljati. Zagrijte pećnicu na 175°C. Obložite protvan papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Razvaljajte tijesto između dva papira za pečenje i režite u željene oblike. Ja sam svoje rezala u dvije različite veličine. Izrezane kekse preselite na pripremljeni protvan i pecite 8-10 minuta.

Keksi će još biti mekani kada ih izvadite iz pećnice, ali budite bez brige jer će se stvrdnuti kako se budu hladili. Pustite da se keksi pet minuta hlade na protvanu prije nego ih nježno preselite na rešetku i tako ohladite do kraja. Ovakve gotove kekse možete čuvati na suhom, hladnom mjestu barem par tjedana, tako da ih možete ispeći unaprijed.

Kada ste spremni za zgotoviti išlere, skuhajte gusti puding, i to tako da upotrijebite oko 2/3 mlijeka od onoga što je navedeno u uputama na pakiranju. Pustite da se puding malo ohladi prije nego ga preslite u vrećicu za kreme. Puding istisnite na polovicu keksa.

Za glazuru, rastopite čokoladu sa maslacem. Preostalu polovicu keksa pokrijte glazurom, pa spojite kekse sa polovicama s pudingom. Gotove išlere čuvajte u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi do pet dana.

Christmas Vegan Nutella Cookies (gluten free, paleo) / Božićni veganski Nutella keksi (bez glutena, paleo)

These cookies are super scrumptious and sweet and actually have zero Nutella in them. The secret of the famous spread’s magical flavor lies, in fact, within the toasted hazelnuts and cacao combo.

You can easily toast your own hazelnuts by throwing them into the oven at 175°C for about 15-20 minutes. Once they are fragrant and their skins are cracked, take them out and leave to cool completely. To peal the skins the easy way, just wrapped cooled hazelnuts into a kitchen towel and give them a good rub. Most skins will just slide off and you’ll have an easy time peeling off the rest with your hands.

IMGP8029

IMGP8016

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 50 cookies / 3.27 EUR)

For the cookie batter:

1 and ½ cup toasted hazelnuts (1.33 EUR)

1 cup pitted dates (0.67 EUR)

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.27 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1-2 tbsp plant based milk (0.01 EUR)

For the topping:

2 rows dark cooking chocolate (0.53 EUR)

½ tsp coconut oil (0.02 EUR)

2-3 tbsp crushed toasted hazelnuts (0.13 EUR)

IMGP8032

METHOD:

Pulse the toasted hazelnuts in a food processor into a fine powder. Remove and set aside, then add pitted dates to a food processor and pulse until you have a thick paste. Return in the hazelnuts, then add in coconut oil, vanilla, cacao powder and salt. Pulse until a thick dough comes together. Add in the milk bit by bit as needed. Remove the dough from food processor, wrap in cling foil and refrigerate for at least an hour, or up to 3-4 days in advance.

When ready to bake, remove the dough from fridge and allow it to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes, so it’s easier to roll out. Preheat the oven to 175°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper and cut into desired shapes. Place the cookies on a prepared baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes.

The cookies will still be soft when they come right out of the oven, but don’t worry, they’ll firm up as they cool. Allow the cookies to cool for about 5 minutes on their baking tray, then gently move them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once the cookies are completely cool, melt the chocolate with coconut oil and cover each cookie with the mixture. Sprinkle each cookie with a bit of crushed hazelnuts before the chocolate firms up. Place the cookies in the fridge for 15-20 minutes so the chocolate firms up completely, then store in an airtight container in a cool dark place. The cookies should hold for at least a week or two.

Ovi keksići su jako bogati i slasni, a zapravo u njima uopće niti nema Nutelle. Tajna okusa, koji jako podsjeća na slavni namaz, je u kombinaciji tostiranih lješnjaka i kakao praha.

Lješnjake lako možete sami tostirati tako da ih ubacite u pećnicu na 175°C na jedno 15-20 minuta. Izvadite lješnjake iz pećnice kada zamiriše i tanka ljuskica im popuca, te ih ostavite da se skroz ohlade. Ljusku ćete onda lako skinuti sa lješnjaka tako da ih umotate u kuhinjsku krpu i dobro protrljate. Većina ljuski će sama otpasti, a rukama ćete lako oguliti ostatak.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 50-tak keksića / 24,41 kn)

Za tijesto:

1 i ½ šalica tostiranih lješnjaka (10,00 kn)

1 šalica odkoštenih datulja (5,00 kn)

2 žlice kokosovog ulja, rastopljenog (2,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1-2 žlice veganskog mlijeka (0,05 kn)

Za preljev:

2 reda tamne čokolade (4,00 kn)

½ žličice kokosovog ulja (0,15 kn)

2-3 žlice tostiranih i sjeckanih lješnjaka (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Tostirane lješnjake ubacite u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne dobijete fini prah. Izvadite iz multipraktika i stavite na stranu, pa u multipraktiku onda sameljite datulje u gustu pastu. Vratite k datuljama i lješnjake, pa dodajte još i kokosovo ulje, vaniliju, kakao i sol. Pulsirajte sve dok se ne formira gusto tijesto, a po potrebi dodajte u tijesto malo po malo mlijeka. Maknite tijesto iz multipraktika, zamotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i ostavite u hladnjaku da miruje barem sat vremena, ili do 3-4 dana.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, tijesto 10-15 minuta ranije izvadite iz hladnjaka da malo otpusti kako bi ste ga lakše razvaljali. Zagrijte pećnicu na 175°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Tijesto tanko razvaljajte između dva sloja papira za pečenje i režite u željene oblike. Keksiće raširite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 8-10 minuta.

Keksi će još biti mekani kada ih izvadite iz pećnice, ali ne brinite, budu očvrsnuli kako se hlade. Ostavite kekse da se jedno pet minuta hlade na protvanu, a onda ih pažljivo preselite na rešetku i tako ohladite do kraja.

Kada su keksići ohlađeni, rastopite čokoladu sa kokosovim uljem i time premažite kekse. Posipajte sjeckanim lješnjacima prije nego se čokolada stvrdne. Kekse na 15-20 minuta stavite u hladnjak kako bi se čokolada do kraja stisnula, a kasnije čuvajte u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi na suhom i hladnom mjestu. Keksići bi trebali držati barem tjedan do dva.

Jam Sandwich Cookies / Keksići sa pekmezom

Are you guys aware that Christmas is in less than a week?! Of course you are, I mean, everyone has a calendar. But, seriously, doesn’t it seem like the whole holiday season just sneaked up on us? I definitely have those feels. And if you don’t have all the deserts and cookies planned out yet, here’s a simple recipe for tasty little treats that are also gonna brighten up your holiday table. These are great to make in advance, as they can keep for weeks stored in an airtight container.

imgp5864

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 25 – 30 cookies / 2.20 EUR for all)

For the dough:

8 heaping tbsp all-purpose flour (0.07 EUR)

4 heaping tbsp corn starch (0.13 EUR)

4 heaping tbsp caster sugar (0.05 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

125 g butter, at room temperature (1.00 EUR)

1 egg (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

To assemble cookies:

Jam of choice (0.67 EUR)

Caster sugar (0.03 EUR)

Additional:

Flour for dusting (0.01 EUR)

imgp5800

METHOD:

In a bowl whisk together dry ingredients. Add in cubed butter, egg and vanilla and using your fingers form smooth dough. Flatten the dough into a disc, wrap in cling foil and refrigerate for at least an hour.

When ready to bake, allow the dough to loosen for 5 minutes at room temperature so it’s easier to work with. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Roll out the dough on a well-floured work surface and cut into desired shapes while cutting small holes in half of the cookies. Spread the cookies on prepared baking sheet and bake for 6 minutes. The cookies will get lighter in shade, but don’t let them start browning. Allow the cookies to sit for 5 minutes on a baking sheet then transfer them on a wire rack to cool off completely.

imgp5851

To assemble the cookie sandwiches, spread jam on cookies without a hole and toss the half with a hole in caster sugar. Carefully assemble the two together and store cookies in an airtight container in a dry and cool place for later. Or serve them right away if you are so inclined.

Jeste li svjesni činjenice da je Božić za manje od tjedan dana?! Naravno da jeste, mislim, svi imamo kalendare. Ali, stvarno, ne čini vam se kao da su nam se blagdani jednostavno prišuljali? Ja definitivno imam takav osjećaj. A ako već niste isplanirali do kraja koje ćete kekse i kolače raditi, evo vam jedan jednostavan recept za male poslastice koje će baš fino razveseliti blagdanski stol. Ovi keksići se mogu napraviti i unaprijed, jer drže i par tjedana ako ih čuvate u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 25 – 30 keksa / 16,41 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

8 velikih žlica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

4 velikih žlica kukuruznog škroba (1,00 kn)

4 velikih žlica šećera u prahu (0,40 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

125 g maslaca, na sobnoj temperaturi (7,50 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Za složiti kekse:

Pekmez po izboru (5,00 kn)

Šećer u prahu (0,20 kn)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U zdjeli pomiješajte suhe sastojke. Dodajte maslac narezan na kockice, jaje i vaniliju te rukama umijesite glatko tijesto. Spljoštite tijesto u disk, zamotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i stavite u frižider na barem sat vremena.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, izvadite tijesto iz frižidera na 5 minuta da se malo otpusti i da vam bude lakše s njim raditi. Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Obložite protvan papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Razvaljajte tijesto na dobro pobrašnjenoj radnoj plohi i režite u željene oblike, a polovicu keksa napravite s rupom. Raširite kekse na pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 6 minuta. Keksići će pobijeliti kako se peku, ali pazite da ne počnu tamniti. Pustite ih 5 minuta da odstoje na protvanu i onda preselite na rešetku da se ohlade do kraja.

Da napravite keksić sendviče, polovice bez rupe premažite pekmezom, a polovice s rupom uvaljajte u šećer u prahu, pa pažljivo spojite kekse. Čuvajte keksiće u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi na suhom i hladnom mjestu. Ili ih poslužite odmah, ako ste tako raspoloženi.

Gingerbread Cookies / Paprenjaci

This is my take on holiday classic, resulting with a batch of lovely and fragrant gingerbread cookies that are not overly too sweet. If you’re feeling inspired, you can most certainly take these cookies even further and decorate them with royal icing or make cookie sandwiches with your favorite cream filling. But I personally prefer to nibble them on their own, while sipping some nice hot tea. IMGP4459

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 40 cookies / 0.10 EUR per cookie / 4.09 EUR for all)

1 cup all-purpose flour (0.07 EUR)

1 cup whole wheat flour (0.10 EUR)

1 ½ cup ground walnuts (1.33 EUR)

2 tbsp raw cocoa powder (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp ground cinnamon (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp ground ginger (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp ground nutmeg (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp ground cloves (0.03 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

¼ tsp ground black pepper (0.01 EUR)

1 cup butter, cubed and at room temperature (1.60 EUR)

1/3 cup sugar (0.07 EUR)

1 large egg (0.20 EUR)

1 egg yolk (0.20 EUR)

2 tbsp honey (0.27 EUR)

IMGP4461

METHOD:

In a small bowl, mix together flour, ground walnuts, cocoa powder, cinnamon ginger, nutmeg, cloves, salt and pepper. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in egg, yolk and honey until creamy. Bit by bit, incorporate the dry ingredients until a uniform mass forms, using a dough-hook attachment on your mixer. Wrap the dough tightly in cling film and store in fridge for at least an hour, but best overnight.

IMGP4465

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 180°C. Line baking tray with parchment paper and set aside. Roll the dough out on a well-floured surface and using a cookie cutter cut into desired shapes. Refrigerate any dough scraps for at least 15 minutes before re-rolling.

Arrange cookies on prepared baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes, depending on cookie thickness. Let cookies cool for about five minutes on a baking tray before transferring to wire rack to cool completely. Store cooled cookies in a tin container, in a dry and cool place, for up to a month.

Ovo je moja verzija tipičnih blagdanskih keksića, a paprenjaci mirišu prekrasno i nisu pretjerano slatki. Ako se osjećate nadahnutima, slobodno idite korak dalje pa kekse ukrasite šećernom glazurom ili složite sendviče od keksića i najdražeg kremastog punjenja. Ali ja ih osobno volim grickati ovakve kakvi jesu, bez ikakvih dodataka, uz šalicu vrućeg čaja.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 40 keksića / 0,77 kn po keksiću / 30,63 kn za sve)

1 šalica oštrog pšeničnog brašna (0,50 kn)

1 šalica integralnog pšeničnog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 ½ šalica mljevenih oraha (10,00 kn)

2 žlice kakao praha (1,00 kn)

1 žličica mljevenog cimeta (0,07 kn)

½ žličice mljevenog đumbira (0,25 kn)

½ žličice mljevenog muškatnog oraščića (0,25 kn)

½ žličice mljevenih klinčića (0,25 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

¼ žličice mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

1 šalica (200 g) maslaca, narezanog na kockice i na sobnoj temperaturi (12,00 kn)

1/3 šalice šećera (0,50 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

1 žutanjak (1,50 kn)

2 žlice meda (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U zdjelici pomiješajte brašna, orahe, kakao, cimet, đumbir, muškatni oraščić, klinčice, sol i papar. U većoj zdjeli izmiksajte maslac i šećer da budu pjenasti. Umiksajte jaje, žutanjak i med da dobijete kremu. Malo po malo dodajte suhe sastojke i miksajte sa kukom za tijesto dok se ne formira jednolična masa. Zamotajte tijesto u prijanjajuću foliju i stavite u hladnjak na minimalno jedan sat, a najbolje preko noći.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Obložite pleh za pečenje masnim papirom pa stavite na stranu. Razvaljajte tijesto na dobro pobrašnjenoj površini i režite na željene oblike. Ostatke tijesta stavite barem na 15-tak minuta ponovo u hladnjak prije nego što ćete ih opet razvaljati.

Raširite keksiće po pripremljenom plehu za pečenje i pecite 8-10 minuta, ovisno o debljini. Ostavite ih 5 minuta da se hlade na protvanu prije nego ih preselite na rešetku i ohladite do kraja. Ohlađene kekse možete do mjesec dana čuvati u metalnoj posudi na hladnom i tamnom mjestu.

Buckwheat Flour Apple Cookies (vegan, low histamine) / Keksići od heljdinog brašna sa jabukama (veganski, niskohistaminski)

For all you folks on a low histamine diet, deserts are probably only a distant memory. Well, here come the cookies that actually taste quite good and are super easy to make. I used a silicone mini muffin tray to keep the cookies in place and ensure an easier clean-up, but you can definitely just dump them on a parchment lined baking tray.

imgp5451

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 11 small cookies / 0.12 EUR per cookie / 1.35 EUR for all)

1 large apple, peeled and grated (0.20 EUR)

3 tbsp coconut oil, melted (0.40 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

2 tbsp honey (0.27 EUR)

3/4 cup buckwheat flour (0.40 EUR)

2 tbsp shredded coconut (0.07 EUR)

imgp5452

imgp5454

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 180°C. In a bowl, mix together grated apple, coconut oil, salt and honey. Add in buckwheat flour and stir until uniform. If the mixture appears too thick, feel free to add in a tablespoon of water. Divide the cookie dough between muffin cups, or space out on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with shredded coconut. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until slightly golden on top.

I can’t tell you how long the cookies will last, because we ate them all right away. 😀

Za sve vas koji ste na niskohistaminskoj dijeti, deserti su vjerojatno samo stvar daleke prošlosti. E pa imam za vas recept za keksiće koji su fini i super jednostavni za napraviti. Ja sam upotrijebila silikonski kalup za mini mafine kako bi keksići ostali na mjestu i čišćenje bilo brzo, ali naravno da ih možete peći na protvanu obloženom masnim papirom.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 11 malih keksića / 0,91 kn po keksu / 10,01 kn za sve)

1 velika jabuka, oguljena i naribana (1,50 kn)

3 žlice rastopljenog kokosovog ulja (3,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

2 žlice meda (2,00 kn)

3/4 šalice heljdinog brašna (3,00 kn)

2 žlice ribanog kokosa (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. U zdjeli pomiješajte ribanu jabuku, kokosovo ulje, sol i med. Dodajte heljdino brašno i miješajte da sve bude jednolično. Ako vam se smjesa čini pregustom, slobodno dodajte žlicu vode. Podijelite smjesu za kekse među posudicama za mafine, ili ju raširite po protvanu obloženom papirom za pečenje, a keksiće posipajte ribanim kokosom. Pecite 15-20 minuta, dok keksići ne budu zlatno-žuti.

Rado bi vam rekla koliko dugo keksići mogu stajati, ali problem je u tome što smo sve odmah slistili. 😀

Oh boy, oh boy. These are totally not healthy for you. At all. So don’t even bother making them. Actually, don’t even look at the pictures, they are that bad.

I’m kidding, of course. You’re not baking cookies because they are healthy. You’re baking cookies because they are dang delicious. Besides, bikini season is light years away. IMGP2763

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 20 cookies / 0.20 EUR per cookie / 4.92 EUR for all)

½ cup butter, at room temperature (0.80 EUR)

½ cup peanut butter, at room temperature (0.80 EUR)

2/3 cup brown sugar (0.40 EUR)

2 large eggs (0.40 EUR)

2 tbsp milk (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

2 cups plain white flour (0.13 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp baking powder (0.01 EUR)

1 ½ cup chocolate chunks (1.33 EUR) IMGP2764

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 180°C. In a large bowl, cream together butters and sugar. Add the eggs, milk and vanilla and mix well until creamy and smooth. Add the flour, salt and baking powder and mix with dough hook attachment until combined. Do not over mix it. Fold in chocolate chunks.

Spoon the batter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper into balls. Leave enough space around because the cookies will spread during baking.Bake for 12 minutes. Don’t worry if the cookies look a bit underdone, they’ll finish off on the baking sheet. Let cookies sit on a baking sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.


Uh, oh! Ovi keksići uopće nisu zdravi. Ni najmanje. Nemojte se ni truditi raditi ih. Zapravo, nemojte ni gledati slike. Toliko su grozni.

Šalim se, naravno. Ne pečete kekse jer su zdravi. Pečete ih jer su fantastični. Osim toga, sezona bikinija je svjetlosnim godinama daleko.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 20 keksića / 1,47 kn po keksiću / 29,41 kn za sve)

½ šalice maslaca, na sobnoj temperaturi (6,00 kn)

½ šalice kikiriki maslaca, na sobnoj temperaturi (6,00 kn)

2/3 šalice smeđeg šećera (3,00 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

2 žlice mlijeka (0,10 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 šalice oštrog pšeničnog brašna (1,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

1 ½ šalica komadića čokolade (10,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. U velikoj posudi kremasto umiksajte maslace i šećer. Dodajte jaja, mlijeko i vaniliju i miksajte dok ne bude glatko i kremasto. Dodajte brašno, sol i prašak za pecivo, pa miksajte sa kukom za tijesto dok se ne sjedini. Pazite da ne miksate previše. Nježno umiješajte komadiće čokolade.

Žličicom formirajte kuglice od smjese i stavljajte ih na pleh za pečenje obložen masnim papirom. Pazite da između kuglica bude dosta mjesta, jer će se keksići raširiti kako se peku. Pecite 12 minuta i ne brinite ako vam keksići izgledaju kao da nisu pečeni do kraja, jer će se do kraja ispeći od topline vani na protvanu. Pustite ih 5 minuta na protvanu, a nakon toga preselite na rešetku da se ohlade do kraja.a
