No Flour Oatmeal Cookies / Ovseni piskoti brez moke


“I'd make oatmeal cookies."
"Cookies?"
"I would. That's just what I would do."
"Why?"
He lifts one hand from the steering wheel and pinches his chin. 
"Because the world is changing so fast all the time. 
There's nothing you can do but just say, 'cool,' and roll with it. 
But some things can stay the same. Flour is still flour. 
Vanilla still smells like vanilla. 
Say a giant fireball is motoring toward us right now from Alha Centauri.
 Okay, universe. 
You expect us to run and scream and kill one another? 
Sorry, 
we're making oatmeal freaking cookies.”

R.A. Nelson, Breathe My Name

One of my New Year's resolutions was exercise. Quite a cliché. So far, this plan is still working for me. I once read somewhere that the brain can be reprogrammed in two months-as far as habits goes. If you're doing something for two months, then it becomes your habit and is difficult to stop doing it. Great! This information made me really happy. It gave me a lot of hope. Of course, this also means that if you're not active for two months, you get used to it.

For the third month I insist on exercise and this has become my habit! I exercise at home, through workout videos on YouTube. Thank God that days are getting longer and warm, because I can not wait to start combining exercising at home with running in the nature. But first I have to take my running watch to a battery replacement place.

Because of  this reason, I would like to have some snacks and sweet things that are more healthy, at home all the time. I will still use traditional recipes, because I always ate everything and this won’t change now. But I will also post recipes that aren’t so classic. I started with oat cookies without flour. They were great for before and after exercise. These are quite soft.

Let's go out!

With love, Neja

Ena od mojih novoletnih zaobljub je bila telovadba. Precej klišejsko. Zaenkrat se tega načrta še vedno držim. Enkrat sem nekje prebrala, da je možgane možno reprogramirati v dveh mesecih-kar se tiče navad. Če nekaj počneš dva meseca, potem to postane tvoja navada in se težko pripraviš do tega, da bi s tem prenehal. Super! Tega podatka sem bila resnično vesela. Dalo mi je veliko upanja. Seveda to pomeni tudi to, da če dva meseca nisi aktiven, se navadiš na to.

Že tretji mesec vztrajam pri telovadbi in to je postalo moja navada! Telovadim doma, preko telovadnih videov na YouTubu. Hvalabogu, da se dan daljša in topli, ker komaj čakam, da začnem telovadbo doma kombinirati s tekom v naravi. Ampak najprej moram odnesti tekaško uro na zamenjavo baterije.

Zaradi tega bi doma rada imela kakšne prigrizke in tiste, ta sladke stvari, ki so bolj zdrave. Za trenutek, ko mi paše nekaj sladkega. Še vedno bom pripravljala tudi klasične recepte, ker sem vedno jedla vse in tudi sedaj je tako. Bom pa večkrat objavila kaj, kar ni tako klasično. Začela sem z ovsenimi piškoti brez moke. Bili so super za pred in po telovadbi. So pa precej mehki.

Gremo ven!

Z ljubeznijo, Neja
Ingredients

1 cup of very ripe bananas, mashed well
2⅓ cup quick oats or regular oats blent up halfway in a blender
1 cup natural chunky peanut butter
½ cup mini chocolate chips
⅓ cup raisins
¼ cup raw honey, melted (agave or maple syrup)
¾ teaspoon salt

The process

1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees
2. Take out two mixing bowls
3. In one bowl mix together the bananas, honey and peanut butter
4. In another bowl mix together the oats, raisins, chocolate chips and salt
5. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients
6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
7. Scoop out about 2-3 tablespoons worth of mix and place it on the parchment paper
8. Take a fork and press down the mix to form a flattened cookie (the cookies are not going to spread or rise, so however you form them is how they are going to be)
9. Put the cookies in the oven for 13-15 minutes, but no more than that
10. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack
11. The more you let them cool the firmer they will get

Sestavine

300 g zelo zrelih banan, zmečkanih v pire (pribl. 4 banane)
210 g ovsenih kosmičev
250 g arašidovega  masla
100 g čokoladnih kapljic
75 g rozin
75 g agavinega sirupa (ali medu, javorjevega sirupa,..)
¾ žličke soli

Postopek

1. Pečico segrejte na 160 stopinj.
2. Vzemite dve mešalni skledi.
3. V eni skledi zmešajte banane, agavin sirup  in arašidovo maslo.
4. V drugi skledi zmešajte ovsene kosmiče, rozine, čokoladne kapljice in sol.
5. Mokre sestavine vmešajte  v suhe sestavine.
6. Na pekač položite peki papir.
7. Z žlico zajemite maso in spustite na pekač.
8. Malo potlačite z žlico ali prsti, in oblikujte v krog. Piškoti se ne bodo razlezli, zato naredite tako velike, kot jih želite imeti na koncu.
9. Piškote pecite 13-15 min (ne več kot toliko časa).
10. Pustite, da se piškoti ohladijo.
11. Dalj časa, kot jih boste pustili ohlajati, bolj čvrsti bodo.

  1. O super, super recept..zelo preprost in enostaven. Se tole arašidovo maslo kupi kar v kakšni navadni trgovini? Misliš, da bi se obneslo z kokosovim maslom tudi?..Hvala za recept, zakon je in za blog, ki mi da milijon in eno idejo, da ni vsak dan isto na meniju:)

    1. Hej & hvala =)! Arašidovo maslo se dobi skoraj v vsaki trgovini in ga boš lahko brez težav našla. Mislim, da bi šlo tudi s kokosovim....se mi pa zdi, da je med njima kar velika razlika, no, odvisno kaj imaš v mislih: kokosovo mast ali prav kokosovo maslo...s kokosovo mastjo pomojem ne bi blo fajn, s kokosovim maslom pa.

    1. Hej Vanja! Večinoma jih kupujem v Šparu ali Mercatorju. Me pa moti, ker tam prodajajo samo take s temno čokolado. Drugače vem, da obstaja tudi par spletnih trgovin, kjer prodajajo slaščičarske stvari in imajo tudi te čokoladne solzice (kapljice)
