Smiley Oat Cookies

These are really simple cookies, but they don’t look plain. Hence, we had the easiest idea having not so many instruments at our disposal apart from a straw…so, why not using it to make the cookies look cuter? A smiley will make your day! The substance obviously is the main part of each recipe, but the presentation helps us to enjoy more our food:) 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups oats 
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter 
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds (soaked for at least 15 minutes)
  • 1 small teaspoon baking powder 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven at 180°
  2. Blend the oats until they become flour  
  3. Add in the mixer to the oats the other ingredients: agave, almond butter, coconut oil, baking powder, almond milk and chia seeds
  4. Combine well
  5. Give to the dough the shape of normal cookies, place them on the baking tray. 
  6. If you like to give the shape of a smiley, take a straw to do the two eyes and then with a knife design the smile 🙂 Aren’t they super cute?! 🙂
  7. Bake for 25 minutes until they become gold and crunchy 

Why we like them:

  • Super healthy and easy, with no refined sugar
  • Very cheap and with ingredients that we easily all have at home
  • They look so cute that it makes us happy to enjoy them wherever we are… we usually keep couple of them in our bags, for a moment of sweet craving or just as a snack
