Soooo, after a few damned hard days of multiple, monstrous migraines that lead up to a 10+ hour stint in the ER this week, I was in dire need of some comfort food. (I'll likely be blabbing about that adventure soon.)
Craving something sweet, crispy 'n chewy (and of course healthy), I soon found myself getting busy in the kitchen with theeeese little lovlies:
J's Blueberry Almond Oat Squares/Cookies
1/2 cup of oat milk
1/2 berry juice
a big shake of cinnamon
Stevia to sweeten
1/4 cup of crushed almonds
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup blueberries
1 tbsp of olive oil
4 tbsp ground flax seeds
1/4 cup of 0% yogurt
All ingredients eyeballed and organic when possible.
First I preheated the oven to 200C then stirred up the egg, juice, oat milk and yogurt, then combined all ingredients and poured it into a non-stick baking tin and waited 20 minutes.
Yields about 12 small cookies or squares.
As our baking tin is a tad warped, the concoction was thinner at one end, resulting in the above crispy and most satisfying cookie-like treats.
Here is the chewier, thicker section--equally satisfying and both enjoyed still warm.
Couldn't even wait to make a decaf to go with and so good I don't even want a coffee now.
Beats the hell out of buying some packaged "healthy" cookie or power bar and I must confess, I have already eaten almost half of the tray.
Dangerous time of day to be messing with baking, 5pm is.
(I flipped the remaining thick section over and am re-baking them into crispy goodness now.)
Anywho, had to share with those of you like-minded healthy foodies out there.
As usual, bon ap & +++vibes,
