Chocolate-Peanutbutter cookies & Muesli Cookies!

My internet connection was down for past few days.Got it fixed last night only.Forgive me,friends for the delay in commenting at your blogs.



These two cookies were made long time back and it was in draft to get posted.I think this is the right time to post them.Thanks to Srilekha for coming up with the wonderful theme-'Cookies'.I love cookies especially the one loaded with chocolate.I had a last batch of crunchy peanut butter in my fridge.I used them to make this chocolate-peanut butter cookies.It was great and I love the tiny peanut bits in it.I have no idea how I created the recipe and I just followed my instincts and got these lovely cookies.I baked them for a bit longer and it got  little dark .But there is no compromise in the taste.
The muesli cookie recipe was taken from thatslife.com.It turned out to be chewy,wholesome cookies.


Chocolate-Peanut butter Cookies :





You will need :

2 cups of All purpose flour/Maida
1/2 cup butter,melted
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup castor sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup Peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips



Beat together sugar(castor and brown sugar),butter and oil.



Break in the egg and add vanilla essence .Beat well.



Sift salt,baking soda and flour.Add this flour to the egg/sugar mixture.Combine well.



Dump in the peanut butter and chocolate chips.Mix well .




Drop cookie dough using a tablespoon on to the baking tray giving 2 inch of spacing for each cookies.Bake in 250 C preheated oven for 20-25 mins.




(This one is taken with flash-on whereas the first picture is taken under sunlight without flash..hence the difference)

The cookie will be soft when removed from the oven.Once cooled down they become crunchy.Store in a air tight container.



Muesli Cookies :





You will need :

1 cup or 80g butter,at room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla essence
3/4 cup maida/All purpose flour
1/4 baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 3/4 cup of muesli




Place the butter,sugar,eggwhites and vanilla essence into a bowl and beat with electric beaters until creamy.



Sift in the flour and cinnamon ,and mix with a wooden spoon.Add the toasted muesli and mix to combine.



Roll 2 teaspoons of the dough into a ball.Flatten slightly and place on prepared baking sheets.Repeat with remaining mixture.Bake in 250C preheated oven for 8-10 min or until golden.Allow cookies to cool on trays before storing.






Along with Chocolate-Peanut butter cookies & Muesli cookies,I'm also sending the following cookie recipes from my archives to EFM-Cookies event hosted by Srilekha,



My chocolate-Peanut butter cookies goes to Poornima's For the Love of Chocolate event.

Tried out the following recipes this week and they were just amazing..



Sriharivatsan's Cluster bean rice-A very unique rice with cluster beans and we liked the flavors of it.It was spicy and just right.I should try this rice with capsicum.Thanks,Sriharivatsan :)



Vishali's Cabbage stir fry-Loved this so much and I had it with rotis for dinner.I made it again for sandwich the next morning.Both were so good .Thanks ,Vishali :)



Deesha's Bread Poha-I found this recipe through google's search which is eventually at Deesha's place.The recipe is so simple and sounds very delicious so I tried it immediately.It tasted great..Thanks,Deesha :)
