.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! Salut Chéri! You need:  yarn: 105-125 m (114 - 137 yards) worsted weight yarn. The sample was knitted with Novita Joki ( 104 m or 114 yard per 50g) needles : 3.5 mm and 4.0 mm (US size 4 and 6) circular needles (40 cm or 16 inches) size 4.0 mm (US size 6) DPNs 6 stitch markers , one of a different color to indicate the beginning of the round Gauge : 10 sts and 16 rounds = 5 cm (2 inches) in straight Stockinette stitch with 4.0 mm needles Cast on 88 sts on 3.5mm circular needle. Join in round, careful not to twist the stitches. Place a marker to indicate the beginning of the round. Knit in straight Stockinette stitch (knit all

Saving A Curling Scarf.

Don't you just hate it when a piece you've spent hours working on doesn't turn out the way you imagined it? It looks like this... ...when it should be more like this. After just a couple of rows into the Trellis scarf I noticed the cast on edge started to roll upwards ever so slightly. As I continued to knit the curling got worse and worse until it seemed to calm down when the scarf measured 10 cm or so from the CO edge. I didn't really stress much about it thinking it would be easily fixed later on and continued to knit further. Halfway through knitting the scarf I faced another problem with the scarf. The CO edge still rolled up and now the sides started to curl inwards. So badly that the scarf lost more than half of it's width. I hate it when it happens. If this was something I designed myself I could maybe live with the mistake, but when it's a pattern that is published I would assume such things would have been fixed. Or at least
