Baked Flammkuchen! UnBaked Oat Drops!

Sailing along the railway for less than 45 minutes and one easy platform hop, flowing to the wine “fest” proved practical.

In Germany, it is customary to stand up at bar tables to eat and drink as much as it is to sit on a picnic table and drink. Music promotes an uplifting spirit while downing HALF LITERS of NEW WINE. This is wine stopped in the fermantation process, served in a stein and appears like cloudy cider.

Last night, while plugging in my NEW I HEART YOU YOGURT MAKER, I whipped up an adapted version of Julie’s Suggestion from the UnBake OFF (Click here to enter and Win Bagels!) These cookies definitely crumbled, but added to yogurt, they satisfied. They would be GREAT for kiddies and toddlers.

Mix 1/3 C of Oat Bran with 1/4 C Steel Cut Oats

 I sauteed a mini apple in .5 T maple syrup with cinamon and nutmeg, then pureed it in small processor (you could use some applesauce) 

add to the blender 1 nanner, 1 fresh date, .5 T Maple Syrup, 1 T. Sunflower Butter, 2 T Flax Seeds

Mix Dry and Wet Together…and spoon out into around a dozen mini cookies.

Cool in fridge

  1. Sounds like a great festival!
    The cookies look good. I don’t mind crumbly, as long as the taste it there 🙂

    I can’t wait to read your post about the eating habits of men! Great topic.

  2. Hi! Thanks for commenting on my blog! I love yours. I can’t wait to try those oat cookies :). A yogurt maker?? I love trying new ‘tools’ haha…I really want a spiralizer, but they’re expensive. I’m glad I found your blog and keep on checking out my mine – I haven’t found my ‘focus’ yet, but I will hopefully!
