I am pretty sure, by all means, that cookies don’t count as “serious eats”. They are treats, tiny gifts to receive someone who comes by to have tea; to cheer up breakfasts by the coffee mug, or afternoon pick-me-ups.
So, the first requirement is to be tasty.
Then, to be good looking.

And, goodness, are there varied ways to look good! The print in today’s cookies is made with the rolling pin by In My Wood (customized with the birds from What is in for Today, in a design by my dear Taís Mahs).

I have tested a couple of recipes to find this one, which is free from animal products (that is to say the recipe is vegan and, consequently, dairy free), and also gluten free. Plus, the cookies hold their shape beautifully.
Let’s get to it.


I don't know about you, but I am a person who likes food. Really.

It gives me severe bad mood if I get hungry/ crave for food, and have nothing to nibble.

And the plot thickens, as I've been in this healthy-eating-well wave.

Because sometimes I could give it a way having snacks at any bakery down the street, but I haven't been feeling like it lately (besides, each little bite you buy around São Paulo represents a significant percentage of one's monthly budget).

So, in May 2012, gathering information here and there and testing a little, I found myself happy about a recipe/ formula that I came up with for oatmeal granola bars.

You see: they are just the way I like it. Crunchy, and accepting a wide variation of ingredients.

The point is: if I'm hungry, I urge for something savory. And that is just not possible with the recipe mentioned.

There are some options of savory bars being sold out there. But I heard that mostly they taste weird.

Anyway, there are possible.

So, there goes Flora looking in the internet for savory energy bars recipes. But they are not easy to find, not at all.
