OK, I'm not too sure what it really should be called, but I believe I taste more of the oats, so surely I should call them Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies instead?
I was browsing through the Internet for blogs and websites to read, whether on running or cooking or arts and crafts but eventually I did a random search for chia seed cookies.
And I came across Yummy Mummy Kitchen's recipe.
It was a relief to know that I had all the ingredients available at home, and a trip to the supermarket wasn't required.
Last Saturday, I found myself ironically energetic despite the desperate need for a shuteye, I also wanted to BAKE.
I missed being domesticated and playing host over dinner for a few friends.
Anyway, I was extremely happy to note that this recipe has one of my favourite food: peanut butter!
They look so healthy that I was afraid. Really afraid.
And I was right.
Freshly baked, I didn't like the taste of the rolled oats. I can't pinpoint exactly what the issue is, but perhaps my guinea pigs who had a bite the other night can assist me?
I felt that it needed more chocolate chips.
I was so disappointed that I didn't dare to offer to anyone else these cookies, except a handful. (Pity them, I must say. Forced to eat my cookies that night!)
I was sorely tempted to chuck them out but decided to keep them for a few more days.
Last Monday, I took a few to work as my breakfast, crossing my fingers that I would not make a face at the taste of the oats.
Imagine my surprise when I took a tentative bite, and to find it ... OK?
As I finished up my cookie and grabbed another, puzzled.
The raw taste of oats had disappeared.
I need to study this carefully next time!
Go to Yummy Mummy Kitchen's recipe right now, if you want to try it.
Add 3/4 tablespoon of flax seed for some crunch!
And maybe another 1/2 cup of choc chips. :)
