Cookie Bar Recipe


We love Cookies, this recipe is an adaptation of my own recipe because simply one day I wanted ookies but could not be bothered to spend an hour baking 4 cookies at a time (the original recipe makes about 20 cookies) so I decided to experiment and made a cookie tray bake, which worked and was delicious and this is how I make it:


  • 170g butter
  • 100g sugar
  • 200g brown sugar
  • 1tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 240g flour
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 200g chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 170c fan and line a shallow baking tin with baking paper
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth
  3. Add the vanilla extract and eggs and whisk thoroughly
  4. Gradually add the flour and bicarbonate of soda whilst mixing
  5. Once combined add the chocolate chips and mix through
  6. Spread evenly into the baking tray and bake for 25 minutes
  7. Allow to cool before removing from the tin or it will crack
  8. Cut and serve

And there you have it, super simple and super delicious, as with all my recipes I use vegan butter for my milk intolerant babe and it works just as well. If you prefer your cookies really gooey I would take them out a few minutes earlier.

Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe


I had a craving for peanut butter cookies the other day but I wasn’t in the mood for a full baking session so I had a little Google, I couldn’t find a very good recipe but I saw a couple that I sort of combined in the hope of something yummy. They were fairly simple so thought they would be edible nonetheless, this is the recipe I came up with for Peanut Butter Cookies:


  • 100g Sugar
  • 120g Peanut Butter
  • 1 Egg
  • 50g Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 170c (fan)
  2. Measure the sugar and peanut butter into a bowl
  3. Add the egg and whisk until combined
  4. Pour in the chocolate chips and mix through (you can leave these out of you don’t fancy them)
  5. Use a tablespoon to dollop the mixture on a lined baking tray, leave a 3-4cm gap between to allow for them to spread whilst baking
  6. Put into the oven for 12-14 minutes
  7. Allow to cool before serving, but eat them a little warm for the best gooey results!

I can confirm that they were delicious and so quick and easy to make too, whenever I am looking for a simple fix to a sweet craving I will be making them again as they were enjoyed by all four of us, i’ve already made them again since.

  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper
  3. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt together and set aside

  7. Stir in the white and dark chocolate chunks
  8. Spoon dough onto the baking tray – around one heaped teaspoon for a biscuit sized cookie – do not flatten
  9. Make sure that each cookie is 5cm apart to allow for baking
  10. Bake for around 6-8 minutes until the cookies are flattened and started to golden lightly
  11. Once cooked take out of the oven and leave on baking tray to cool
  12. After 5 minutes cooling on the tray transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling before eating

Let me put it simply, white chocolate, good, dark chocolate good, chewy cookies, good – White and Dark Chocolate Cookies , amazing! The recipe is also really easy for anyone to make and is almost foolproof so could be a great one for making with friends or with kids as they cool really quickly so the recipe is instantly rewarding.  I also think they would be great for making in a batch and keeping in the cupboard to enjoy in the evening with a cup of tea. This recipe make around 30 biscuit sized cookies that will keep for 5 days in a sealed tin. Just make sure you do not overcook them or they loose their chewiness!

These cupcakes were made on a day when I made 3 batches of different flavours for my fiance to take into work, the first 3 batched were from my trusted collection of cupcake recipes but for the third I wanted to try something different. I settled on Chocolate Cookie Cupcakes, just because really. I find that I think of my best combinations from flavours when the cupboards are almost bare and I have to be inventive. These cupcakes were enjoyed greatly, in honesty not my favourite but it seems it is a boy thing!
