Let me start with an apology. It has been a looooooooooooooong time since my last post and my blog neglect has been shameful. Life has been busy these last few months and will continue to be so for the next 6 weeks as I countdown to my wedding. However, ideas are still coming along in the background at Bee’s Teas, I am just keeping a safe distance from my Kenwood as one batch of brownies and my lack of self-control could be all that stands between me and a perfect-fitting wedding dress. So to keep things ticking over for the next few months, I will be remembering some of my favourite bakes, and suggesting new recommendations since I last made them.
This week it is my Monster Cookies recipe. As my loyal followers may have picked up on, I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER, so making these was pure joy (mostly as I sat and ate the rest of the jar whilst they were baking). A popular American cookie recipe, these are very easy to make and feel mildly healthy as they have oats in them. They can be themed by using certain coloured M&Ms, so a batch of these with only red M&Ms could make a yummy Valentine’s treat for a loved one!
One batch makes up to 20 cookies so they can be whipped up for a party or to treat your colleagues at work. For those giving up chocolate for Lent (crazy people), I would recommend replacing the chocolate with raisins and dried cranberries for that extra sweetness.
The recipe can be found here, if anyone has a try please let me know (and mentally send one to me!) Enjoy 🙂
