HEALTHY SNACK – OAT BRAN COOKIES WITH BLUBBERYS AND RASBERRYS| COOKING

Just as any other human on this planet I have cravings for sweet things. Usually I am not the one to go for the sugary goods, but last night I need something to satisfy a sudden urge.  Here is the thing though – I try to eat healthy and I have gathered that I can make pretty much anything using oat bran. This makes the dish 50% healthier right away.  Plus some other better alternatives and voila – HEALTIER OAT BRAN COOKIES WITH BLUBBERYS AND RASBERRYS and a great healthy snack!

Just to give you some information about the oat bran I will copy and paste some of the information I gave you about them in this post where I made delicious white cheese cookies for you.

So here is what I learned about the Oat Bran:

  • They keep you full for a long time which is important when you are on a diet. Oat bran absorbs on average 25 times its volume in liquid, so you can imagine why this will help with the cravings.
  • It can lower your Cholesterol. They contain soluble fiber, which reduces the “bad” cholesterol.
  • It is good alternative for people with diabetes.
  • Keep in mind. There is a difference between oatmeal and oat bran. Oat bran contains about 50% more fiber, more protein, calcium, iron, magnesium, and zinc.
  • Do not eat too much. On my Dukan Diet I had an exact quantity I had to eat for each phase. Now that I am not on the diet I try to eat no more than 3 spoons a day (which is plenty).

THE RECIPE:

  • 9 tablespoons of oat bran
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • Frozen raspberries and blubbery to taste (I went ahead and put a handful of both since I like a lot of fruit in my cookies)
  • Stevia  – this is a natural sweetener and is a lot more healthy then the artificial one that is basically poison. I like this brand, but I would still prefer to be able to find a 100% pure one. I have seen brands like that in Bulgaria or I use the leaves, but have not yet found them in France

COOKING:

It’s super simple. Just put everything into a big bowl. Mix it all together into a dough consistancy. Your hands have to be a little wet to roll the cookies. Put them on a baking sheet and flatten them a bit. After that you bake until they get golden. It usually takes me about 15 – 20 minutes in a 250 degree but keep an eye on them just in case. They burn very quickly.

So this is it! pretty simple, right? As a result you can enjoy something tasty without the gild of late night snacking.  So I ope you enjoy!

What are your favorite healthy snacks?

Bisous,
