Recipe for WOOF HEARTS

Serves about 14 cookies

100 g + 1 tbsp rolled oats
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp corn starch or arrowroot
pinch of salt
1 banana
2 tbsp light or dark tahini or peanut butter
1 tsp olive oil
3 tsp beet powder (optional for pink coloring – this works best if you choose light tahini)
2 tbsp vegan yogurt

Preheat the oven to 170°C/338°F.

Blend 100 g of rolled oats in a high speed blender into flour. Put the flour into a bowl and mix with the 1 tbsp of rolled oats, baking powder, corn starch and salt.

Mash the banana with tahini or peanut butter in a bowl (or blend in a blender). Stir in the oil, beet powder and vegan yogurt.

Knead all the ingredients into a dough. At first it will be sticky, but keep kneading, it will become smoother.

Roll out the dough between two sheets of baking paper. Remove the upper sheet and place it on the side. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the hearts and place each heart on the removed sheet of baking paper. Place the sheet with cookie hearts on a baking tray and bake till crunchy, ca 35 minutes.
