There are many ways to represent the love and gratitude we feel for our moms, but I am suspicious when giving my opinion, what food is the best of them 🙂 If it is sweet then, better yet humm …
I have not yet met a child who does not like Cookies, they are really tasty and versatile when it hits the urge to eat a sweetie and believe me, they can be healthy.
At the request of the teacher / educator Janaína Alves de Novaes (Anglo College), I will make this recipe with the students of your room, a fun way to learn more about what we eat and still take home a treat for our dear mama.
The coolest of this cookie recipe is that you can put grains such as flaxseed, chia, sesame, dried fruits, candied fruits, peanut butter, grated coconut, granola in place of oat flakes. You can exchange the butter for coconut oil, but only 50g. And if you do not want to consume gluten, simply substitute the whole wheat flour for decontaminated oat bran (oat flakes and granola as well); Does not change the consistency, only increases its nutritional degree and taste.
So let’s go 😉
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of baking soda
100g unsalted butter (room temperature)
¾ cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa powder 50% (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large ripe banana or 2 small
1 cup oat flakes
100g of bitter chocolate (drops or slash)
Method of preparation:
In a bowl mix the dried ones (whole flour, salt and bicarbonate) and set aside. In a dish, crush the banana well with a fork and set aside. If you are going to use bar chocolate, chop it into small pieces and set aside as well.
In the mixer, beat the butter with the brown sugar, until it is well mixed, fluffy and with a lighter color. Stop from time to time to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
Add egg and vanilla, beat for a few seconds. Add the mashed banana and the powdered cocoa, beat it a little more. Mix a little with the spatula, mix the dry ones and beat very slowly with the mixer, only until the flour is incorporated. Add the oats and chocolate and mix only with the spatula. At this point, you can add walnuts or chopped nuts, or grains.
With a teaspoon, make small balls and distribute in a baking sheet covered with butter, take the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Put the preheated oven at 200 ° from the refrigerator and cook the biscuits until they are darker.
The polka dots will naturally get “flat” as the cookies are. Remove from the oven and do not stir the cookies, let it cool well, because when they leave the oven are still mills, only remain hard after they cool.
Enjoy your food! This recipe yields an average of 30 small cookies
