.Healthier chocolate chip cookies.

Usually when I heat the oven I try to come up with as many things to put in as I can. I think it's waste of electricity to heat it up for just 15 minutes to make the bread rolls so I decided to make some cookies as well. (Always good to have an excuse to bake cookies, saving electricity is as good as any!)

However since it's not weekend and my official baking day, I wanted to make a bit healthier, low-fat, no added sugar version of chocolate chip cookies. I hope you enjoy them!

Greek yoghurt chocolate chip cookies

Makes 12-15

2.5 dl (1 cup) organic corn meal
2.5 dl (1 cup) organic almond flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla (I like using organic bourbon vanilla powder by Urtekram)
(2 tsp stevia powder)
250 g (9 oz.) organic Greek yoghurt
1 egg
200 g (7 oz.) dark chocolate chips (I love big chunks of chocolate in my cookies so I usually make my own by chopping a chocolate bar into pieces)

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C (390 F).
Mix together all the dry ingredients. The cookies don't necessarily need any sweetener, and I have often made them without any. However if you are more into sweet treats, you can add a bit of stevia but remember it's many times sweeter than sugar so use it carefully.

Add the yoghurt and egg and mix until well combined. Lastly add the chocolate chips and fold them into the mixture.

Spoon tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on lined baking tray(s). Press down gently. 

Bake for 15 minutes or until light golden and cooked. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting!

Capsule Wardrobe and Knitting. Part 1. My Capsule Wardrobe Knitting Goals.

Before my preganancy I started to read about capsule wardrobes and decided to try and minimize my own pile of clothes. During these past two years I've been trying to define my own stye by really focusing on which clothes I wear over and over again, and which ones are just taking space in my closet.
And the results have been a bit surprising. I have always thought of myself as a colorful person and I thought I loved a bit quirky clothes. But the fact is I don't actually dress the way I imagined I do. I mean, I own(ed) those kind of clothes, but I seldom wear (wore) them. In the reality I kept reaching for the same basics over and over again and feeling the most comfortable wearing them. I do love colors, just not wearing them. It meant I had to redefine my style, my "uniform" and also my knitting queue. I cleaned away everything I didn't really wear and started to buy good quality basics instead. I also cleaned my knitting queue, replacing things that I liked only…
