Mmm, cookies

And now for something completely different! Time for some baking....

I've tried out a couple of sweet vegan recipes lately, trying to shake the habit of buying cheap chocolate (not working so great yet...)

But, these are a couple of recipes that I'd pinned and I've finally made them! The first one is an individual microwave chocolate chip cookie. It was pretty easy, and really was one serving. I think I cooked it a bit too long though, as it was pretty crunchy on the edges! This is what it looked like:

Raw, pressed into a small ramekin

Cooked for 1 min and 15 seconds
 The second recipe I tried was also very simple, although my hands were called into use and were pretty sticky by the end! It was a no-bake treat, with p.b. and chocolate, how could it go wrong? Well, thankfully it didn't. And they are rich and sweet so will last a while. One at a time...

Stirring in the peanut butter, about to add honey and start squishing by hand

All done! And tucked away in my cute
matryoshka storage container, ready for the fridge

Anyhow, just sharing a couple of non-oven sweets, for a quick fix when you need something NOW.
