I have to restrain myself from baking too often otherwise I turn into the cookie monster and eat everything in sight!
With Mr Loud working interstate, anything I cook I end up eating myself so things like cakes and biscuits have been in the no-go zone for me lately.
I’m actually off to visit Mr Loud this weekend (yay for me!), so I haven’t been too good with my snacky-snack today as I was busy packing last night. Instead, I’m cheating and using one I prepared earlier, I’m sure you’ll forgive me?
What do you think of these?
I used Version 3 and modified it by reducing the sugar to a little over 1/2 a cup. I also didn’t have spelt flour to hand when I made these, so I used some gluten free flour.
I like them because they use oats, and I find when I eat oats I feel fuller for longer. Only problem with these is, they taste so good; even though I’m full I tend to keep going back for seconds, thirds and so on.
Bake at your own risk. But really, when you compare these to any other regular cookie, I think these are pretty good at falling into that ‘health-ier’ cookie area – least you know what’s in them unlike packaged cookies.
