Cacao Oat Cookies

Rainy days call for baking. My 4 year old friend and I baked these cacao oat cookies last week in just 30 minutes – super simple and a great healthy afternoon snack for all ages.

The ingredient list can be altered depending on what you have in the cupboard so go wild ­čÖé You could also add goji berries, nut butter, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds or chocolate chips.
