Dark And White Chocolate Strawberry Layer Cake

The end of June marked my parents’ 30th wedding anniversary. Over 30 years together! I hope I can one day find someone to spend decades with too. My parents decided not to throw a huge party, so we celebrated in a small group, just my parents, me and my grandma (my sister was away on a school trip that weekend). And what better way to celebrate at home than to have some delicious food, right? My mum made a roast dinner while I decided to go a little extra making a cake. Spoiler alert: it was delicious!

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

If, just like me, you’re an unconditional fan of peanut butter – you’re going to love these cookies. Flourless – therefore, gluten-free – they’re mainly based on peanut butter – and that’s where they get their taste from. And although it might be surprising, I’d actually place them on the healthier side of cookie recipes – there’s no flour or regular butter – they’re replaced by peanut butter, which – despite being high in calories – happens to count as healthy food. The only unhealthy part of the recipe is sugar – yes, there’s probably a lot of it, but I still believe overall these cookies aren’t that bad, compared to some other recipes!
