Here’s how to do it

All you need are savory cookies and chocolate to make delicious weekend treats.

Kreativeideer.com – who came up with this clever idea – has used Ritz and chocolate with caramel in the middle, but feel free to try other variations – like chocolate with fruit or a darker variety.

The most important thing is that it becomes soft when heated – because the delicious combination has to be put in the oven, and a new biscuit is put on top – yum!

Proceed as follows:

  1. Set the oven for approx. 175 degrees
  2. Put the cookies on baking paper on a baking sheet, one chocolate on top of each one (continued below the picture).

  1. Put the baking sheet in the oven for 3-5 minutes until the chocolate has softened – remember that it should not melt, but just soften.
  2. Take the plate out of the oven and place a new biscuit on top of each chocolate and press the chocolate down. Allow the cookies to cool slightly before enjoying.

If you have a lot of cookies left over, you can store them in an airtight container and find them again the next time you have a guest or want to indulge.

This way you can make slightly healthier cookies

Okay, maybe it’s not the healthiest snack. If you want to make it a little healthier, there are a few simple tricks that will make it at least a little healthier.

– I would choose a biscuit with a higher fiber and protein content and less sugar. A good alternative is Korn whole wheat cookies from Kavlisays Karoline Nordbø, who has a background in public health and nutrition from the University of Agder and runs the blog Á la Karoline.

As for chocolate, she recommends substituting it with the stevia-sweetened variety—which comes in countless varieties, including caramel.

Randi Eidsmo Flesjø, nutritionist at Sprudlende Sunn, points out that most of the cookies on store shelves often have a lot of added sugar, so it’s probably best to make them yourself.

– Then you know what ingredients are used. Sugar can be replaced with honey, coconut sugar or jaconi syrup, and nuts and seeds can be added to make the cookies healthier and more nutritious, as well as coarser flour or oatmeal, she says.

He can tell you what you should be looking for in general to be a little healthier, slow carbs, protein, fiber and healthy fats.

For chocolate, he recommends using the dark or raw variety.

– They have a higher cocoa content, which provides more antioxidants. The flavonoids in cocoa also have a positive effect on blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease, reduce stress levels in the body and improve mood, says Eidsmo Flesjø.

Remember, it still contains the same amount of calories.

  • 2 dl almonds
  • 1 dl of sesame seeds
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of fiber remember

Grind almonds into almond flour (remember to grind long enough to make real flour).

Mix all the ingredients and mix well. Form into round balls and press flats onto baking paper. I like my fingers to be moisturized as I press flat and shape them round and pretty.

Sprinkle with sea salt and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes, depending on the size. Feel free to make a double or triple portion and keep it lying around. Great for laying down when you’re hungry or need a quick meal.

Oat cookies A la Karoline

Alternatively, you can also simply make delicious cookies, which are good for an evening snack or for unexpected company.

Karoline recommends these oat cookies, which are extra thick, but taste really good with cinnamon and nuts.
