My internet connection was down for past few days.Got it fixed last night only.Forgive me,friends for the delay in commenting at your blogs.
These two cookies were made long time back and it was in draft to get posted.I think this is the right time to post them.Thanks to Srilekha for coming up with the wonderful theme-'Cookies'.I love cookies especially the one loaded with chocolate.I had a last batch of crunchy peanut butter in my fridge.I used them to make this chocolate-peanut butter cookies.It was great and I love the tiny peanut bits in it.I have no idea how I created the recipe and I just followed my instincts and got these lovely cookies.I baked them for a bit longer and it got little dark .But there is no compromise in the taste.
The muesli cookie recipe was taken from thatslife.com.It turned out to be chewy,wholesome cookies.
