I had this cookie recipe on my to-do list, and as today is Valentines in Brazil, I decided to make them heart shaped to celebrate love.
I really don’t know why I waited so long to prepare them as they are extremely easy to do, with no surprises and guaranteed satisfaction :-). I was attracted to this recipe because it contains rolled oats that I just adore inside biscuits. It is also healthy because prepared with wholewheat flour and brown sugar. It contains no butter! A lot of good reasons to make it.
You just have to mix all the ingredients, except for the water, using a mixer. Put the mixture into a bowl and add a couple of tablespoons of water to help combining and mix it using your hands. Add water if necessary, but always in small quantities because it really needs little water.
Using a rolling pin, roll it on parchment paper to a thickness of 0.5cm/0.2in, not less. Cut it into biscuits, using a cookie cutter or a knife. Bake in preheated oven (180°C/356°F) for 10 minutes. That’s all! Simple, isn’t it? I have found it in an Italian blog called Stella di Sale.
