Passover Chocolate Chip Cookies by Lisa Bailey

4 Comments 29 March 2013

There is nothing like a fresh delicious chocolate chip cookie. This is why I make the batter and freeze them raw.   I can pull them out and just bake before serving.

Kosher Ingredients: 2 cups cake meal

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

2 sticks margarine

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 package (12 oz) chocolate chips


Combine dry ingredients, cake meal, baking soda and salt

Melt margarine in microwave, cream with sugars add eggs and vanilla

Add in dry mixture then chips

Shape into balls and flatten a little (these cookies will remain the same shape after baking )

May freeze at this point

Bake 350 (preheated oven) for 10-12 min do not over bake

Chewy Whole Wheat Fudge Cookies

5 Comments 01 September 2010


As an absolute dessert-addict, I am always in search of delicious recipes that can be easily altered to accommodate my ever-present desire to eat healthy. And while I certainly believe that the occasional sugar-flour-butter does a girl good, I try hard to maintain a healthy everyday lifestyle by staying away from processed sugar and flour. That being said, I immediately fell in love with this recipe the second I laid my hands on it. A cinch to make, this divine recipe produces the moistest, most decadent chocolate cookie you can imagine, while using whole wheat flour and maple syrup!

Whole wheat pastry flour – as opposed to regular whole wheat flour (which can often impart too much of a wheat-y flavor and chewy texture to delicate baked goods) –  has a higher starch and lower gluten content, generally yielding more tender results. You can use whole wheat pastry flour the same way you would use regular all-purpose flour in just about any baked good recipe  – the texture will be almost identical.

I love that these cookies are not-too sweet (as I often find cookies to be), have a delightfully creamy texture coming from the whole wheat pastry flour and the syrup, and are unbelievably easy to make. Just one is a satisfying dessert in itself (although that hasn’t stopped me for going back for seconds). These are definitely worth a try!

Also, feel free to play around – these cookies are pretty adaptable. I have used a number of different nuts in this recipe- all with exceptional results. Just make sure to toast them first for the best flavor and crunch (spread on a baking sheet on 350 for about 10-15 minutes). Also, for a lower fat option, the chocolate chips can be omitted, as could the nuts – just be prepared for a pretty flat cookie.

Great for the unexpected Shabbat guests!

Healthy Fudge Cookies

1 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup canola oil

2 tbs vanilla

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

½ cup cocoa (the better the quality, the more chocolaty the cookie!)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tbs instant coffee (optional)

heaping ½ tsp salt

½ (or more) cup of organic chocolate chips

1 cup (or more) chopped, toasted pecans, walnuts, slivered almonds…

  • Preheat the oven to 350. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Combine all of the wet ingredients in a bowl. Add in the dry ingredients, mixing well.
  • Drop cookies in 2-3 inch balls onto the cookie sheet, pressing them down slightly, and making sure to space them about 2 inches apart from each other.
  • Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until spread, but still soft in center. (The cookies will firm up as they cool)

These cookies can be frozen up to a month (if they last that long!).

Mini Maple Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffins-Baked!

Mini Maple Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffins-Baked!

No Comments 30 April 2010

Pancakes are a must at a brunch, but I hate being the one in the kitchen doing all the flipping, while everyone else is having fun and eating. There is the option of making pancakes in advance and freezing them, but its just not the same as when they come out fresh.  So I  found this great recipe for mini maple pancake muffins on Bakerella.com

Generously grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan with non-stick spray.    


1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. Sift together with a wire whisk.
  • In another bowl, stir buttermilk, egg, maple syrup and melted butter until just combined.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Reserve a few chips to sprinkle on the tops.
  • Bake for 8-9 minutes.

Makes 24 mini pancake muffins.

Let cool slightly and remove from the pan. You may need to use a toothpick around the edges to separate the pancake muffins from the pan.
Serve  with maple syrup.

Breakfast Carrot Bran Muffins

No Comments 23 April 2010

This recipe was tested by our friends over at Healthy Exposures.

Its perfect as a Sunday morning breakfast treat . You can even layer a dozen of these into a breakfast tin or a basket, wrap with cellophane, and bring as a housewarming or a get well gift.

Ingredients for this Kosher Recipe

-1.5 c. Wheat Bran

-1/2 c. Oat Bran

-1/4 c. Rolled Oats

-1/4 c. Spelt Flour

-2 T. A.P. Flour

-1.5 t. Baking Powder

-1 t. Baking Soda

-1/4 t. salt

-1/3 c. Stevia [or sweetener of your choice]

-cinnamon, ground ginger, and nutmeg [i didn’t measure. heh…]

-vanilla extract [i was pretty liberal with it.]

-1 c. soy milk

-1/2 T. vinegar

-1/3 c. unsweetened apple sauce

-1/3 c. maple syrup

-1/4 c. egg substitute

-1/2 – 3/4 c. grated carrots

-crystalized ginger, dates, raisins, additional oats [optional – for mix-ins or topping]

Notes on Ingredients

1. Ratio of brans & oats not exact – I am fairly confident this is close to what I used, but may be a hair off. Additionally, you could use more wheat bran and less oat, and vice versa. The oat bran gives it a great texture, however.

2. WW Flour could likely be used in place of A.P, as well as the Spelt. I wanted to incorporate Spelt flour, and added in some A.P. just because I wasn’t sure if WW would encourage it to be too dense. Baby steps!

3. If you don’t have/dislike maple syrup, I am sure these would rock just as hard with molasses or honey – especially molasses.

4. I used between 1/2 c. and 3/4 c. grated carrots…but I think next time I’ll up the ante and use a whole cup.

1. Preheat oven to 375*. In a liquid measuring cup, add vinegar to milk. Let sit 5 minutes while measuring and combining wheat bran, oat bran, and oats.

2. Add milk & vinegar mixture to bran and oat mixture. Let sit while mixing together applesauce, stevia, egg, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Pour this mixture into bran & milk mixture.

3. Combine flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in seperate bowl. Then add this and grated carrots to the master bowl.

4. Mix just until moistened. Do not overmix! You can also add in raisins or dates at this point.
5. Think to self “well dang, at least this smells delicious…will it taste this delicious?”
Spoon into greased [okay, sprayed] tins of choice.
5. Pray to the baking gods that you crafted something successful.
Bake for about 20m. It is very easy to underbake these, so be careful and cut one in half before taking them out. I find that the with the oat bran, it actually get s a really nice “crust” when done for a couple minutes longer than completely necessary, anyways!
Makes 8 mini rectangular loaves.
6. Remove and Cool!

Ultimate Healthy Double Chocolate Cookies

No Comments 15 April 2010

Have you been eating twice as much chocolate now that studies have shown conclusively that this miraculous bean is actually good for you? It’s certainly more appealing than gulping down a $7 wheatgrass shot with the rest of the aerobics squad at the health-food store. Here, then, is BabyCakes NYC’s ode to cocoa: A tried-and-true chocolate-worshiping recipe with crunchy edges and a soft, chewy center that will put you in antioxidant overdrive. Bonus tip: You can add minced fresh mint to the dough, its delicious!

Makes 36 cookies


1 cup coconut oil

1¼ cups evaporated cane juice

¹/3 cup homemade applesauce or store‑bought unsweetened applesauce

½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract

1½ cups bob’s red mill gluten-free all-purpose baking flour vita

¼ cup flax meal

1 teaspoon baking soda

1½ teaspoons xanthan gum (Bob’s Red Mill brand)

1 cup vegan chocolate chips



Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, evaporated cane juice, applesauce, cocoa powder, salt, and vanilla.

In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, flax meal, baking soda, and xanthan gum.

Using a rubber spatula, carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and combine until a dough is formed. Gently fold in the chocolate chips just until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.

Using a melon baller, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the portions 1 inch apart. Gently press each with the heel of your hand to help them spread.

Bake the cookies on the center rack for 14 minutes, rotating the sheets 180 degrees after 9 minutes. The finished cookies will be crisp on the edges and soft in the center.

Let the cookies stand on the sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack and cool completely before cover­ing. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room tempera­ture for up to 3 days.
