This cookie recipe is an easy one-bowl recipe and the result is soft and chewy just the way I like it!
Vegan berry cookies recipe takes just 30 minutes from start to finish. These cookies can hardly be called a desert in a typical sense, as they are healthy with a perfect balance of good fats and wholesome foods.
As for the Berries, When you hear the word berry, your mind probably jumps to strawberries, which are in season at the moment. Or maybe you picture more exotic berries, such as blueberries and raspberries.
Either way, one thing is certain: berries will never let you down.However, the Indian marketplace isn’t great at supplying berries.
Frozen berries are the best alternative there are equally intact with nutrition as fresh berries, sometimes even better. Frozen berries are packed when they are at their peak stage, and the best of the best berries are chosen. The nutritional content is locked in, now you are out of excuses for postponing the making of the berry cookies, smoothies, or desserts.
Why Rolled oats and not steel cut oats?
So while they differ in size, shape, mouthfeel, and rate at which they digest, when comparing steel cut oats vs. rolled oats, their nutritional value ends up being the same. However, Rolled oats are completely different “extra thick” rolled oats, and you’ve got an extremely versatile whole grain with a multitude of uses.Everything from breakfast cereal to granola bars, muffins to smoothies to cookies, rolled oats are definitely on trend for recipe substitutions and week night overnight oats prep. Rolled oats’ creamy soft texture after being cooked makes them equally as suitable for oatmeal as they are for baking.So consider what you want to use them for. Trying out a new home made granola recipe or cookies? Go for the rolled oats.
