.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!

(By Far) The Easiest Way to K4Tog.

I have published earlier a post on an easy way to k4tog - knit 4 stitches together - which is an essential stitch in my Cloud mitten pattern. As you might already know it is a bit challenging especially with 2.5 mm bamboo needles that not only have sharp tips but are bendy and especially prone to snapping. Stubborn as I am, I wasn't going to give up and change the design just to make it easier to knit. So I came up with the idea of using a tiny crochet hook to pull the working stitch through other three. 
I was planning to use this same method when knitting the second pair of Cloud mittens, but alas, I couldn't find the hook anywhere. I seem to have misplaced it and I just can't remember where I put it... And as you know I don't crochet often so the second smallest hook I had was size 3.5 mm which didn't work for this purpose for obvious reasons. 
So I was back to square one trying to figure out how to do the k4tog in an easy way when I got the idea of reversing t…
