Happy 2016! This year is gonna be awesome 🙂 New year, new chances, new opportunities.

2015 was full of love, fun and adventures. We created this beautiful space together to share our experiences, what we eat and how we live. We travelled a lot this year (New York, Australia…). We met gorgeous people. We fell in love. We ate well, very well. And the most important thing: We see the world through different eyes.

We are really excited to see what’s to come this year 2016!

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

Some people love licking the cookie mixture out of the bowl… we are that kind people! And you?

We are addicted to peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies, so we have mixed both and made an insanely amazing version of them.

Hi pretty faces!

It has been a long time since we haven’t taken a sit to write a post. We love the idea of sharing with you our veggie healthy style and our recipes so you can made it at home. Lately, we are quite busy, but with lot of pictures and content in the desk, like this baby!

We are addicted to peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies, so we have mixed both and made an insanely amazing version of them: Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies.

Attention! The peanut butter we used is homemade: NO ADDITIVES in it. It scares when you read the composition facts of a peanut butter can, almost all the ingredients are junk. Please, put it back on the shelf if you don’t recognise the procedence of something.

You can’t feel guilty to try it, because it only has three ingredients: raw peanuts, a little bit of olive oil and salt. That’s it!

Soon we will share how we make it, because today we will tell you how we made our homemade Peanut butter & Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies.

No refined sugar added, we used maple syrup and dates instead. You know our passion with oats, and wholegrain products, we don’t like plain flour at all, so we usually buy Oat Whole Flour. The healthy version for our sweet tooth.

Ingredients:

3 – 1/3 cups oat whole flour.

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.

1/3 cup soya margarine (Alpro).

1/3 cup peanut butter (homemade like us or not: It’s up to you!).

2 – 1/3 cups chocolate chips.

1 egg.

2 spoons of Maple Syrup.

5 dates.

Preparation:

First preheat the oven 170ºC while you are making the dough. Melt the soya margarine and put it with the oat whole flour and the baking powder in a mixing bowl, after add the peanut butter, the maple syrup, the chopped dates and the egg. Mix everything together very well with a hand blender. Finally add the chocolate chips… and oh, my!

To make the cookies, we take a spoon with the cookie dough and we do small balls with our hands, we put them over the oven tray with baking paper and we smash the dough balls with a spoon getting the form of a cookie one by one.

15 minutes in the oven and surprise!!! Wonderful cookies for everyone.

¡Hoooola caracolas!

Lo sentimos por no publicar muchos posts últimamente, estamos bastante ocupadas, pero tenemos muchas cosas ricas guardadas para mostraros poco a poco 🙂

Para los que no lo sabéis, somos adictas a la crema de cacahuete y a las cookies de chocolate, así que hemos fusionado ambas y ha salido algo asombroso: Cookies de crema de cacahuete y pepitas de chocolate.

Foto 4-5-15 0 49 25

¡Atención! La crema de cacahuete es 100% casera, sin aditivos. Simplemente utilizando cacahuetes naturales, un poco de aceite de oliva y sal. Mejor ni mirar qué es lo que lleva la crema del bote. Si desconoces alguno de los ingredientes, o si no puedes pronunciar el nombre de alguno, mejor déjalo en la estantería.

No hemos utilizado azúcar refinado, lo hemos sustituido por dátiles y sirope de arce. No somos muy amigas de la harina procesada, así que casi siempre utilizamos harina de avena integral, hay que tratar de buscar siempre la opción más sana.

Ingredientes:

3 – 1/3 tazas de harina de avena integral.

1/2 cucharadita de levadura en polvo.

1/3 taza de margarina de soja (Alpro).

1/3 taza de crema de cacahuete.

2 – 1/3 tazas de pepitas de chocolate.

1 huevo.

2 cucharadas de sirope de arce.

5 dátiles.

Preparación:

Precalienta el horno a 170ºC. Derrite la margarina y mezclala en un bol junto a la harina y la levadura. Luego añade la crema de cacahuete, el sirope de arce, los dátiles y el huevo. Mezcla todo muy bien con la batidora, después añade las pepitas de chocolate y tendrás la masa.

Ahora simplemente tienes que hacer bolitas, del tamaño cogiendo como referencia una cucharada de mezcla y colocarlas en una bandeja de horno con papel de cocina encima. Aplasta las bolitas con la ayuda de una cuchara una por una y ¡al horno!

15 minutos y listas 🙂

¡Deliciosas y con una textura tremenda!
