Hi, I'm Rosie Battista from ICookNaked.com. And of course, I'm not really naked, but we're going to make naked cookies. Alright, I'll wait for Ab to stop looking, you don't hear her, o.k. Hi, I'm Rosie Battista from ICookNaked.com. Now, of course, I'm not really showing up in the kitchen, naked, but I am surely going to show you how to cook with naked food. And that's food in it's most natural form. So, today, we're going to make healthy yogurt cookies that are going to have no refined sugar and no flour. So, that's going to be pretty amazing and they are absolutely, amazingly delicious. So, what we're going to start with, we're going to make our own flour, out of just plain, old, regular oatmeal. Two cups of oats into our blender, and there we have a nice flour made out of oats. I'm going to put that into a big bowl, and we're going to use this bowl to add all of our dry ingredients too. Our half cup of raisins, our half cup of dark chocolate chips, and our half cup of chopped walnuts. So, we're going to leave this here, waiting and ready for us to add our wet ingredients to. So, one of the things I like about making naked cookies, is you don't have to cream the butter and you have the sugar and all that kind of stuff. What we're going to use for our wet ingredients, is a half a cup of plain yogurt, one-half a cup of peanut butter, you can also use almond butter and one banana. We're going to add a little vanilla, a lot of vanilla, maybe, you know the thing about this is, if you don't measure, it's not that big of a deal. And a half a teaspoon of baking powder. I'm going to blend that together. Now, I'm going to take our wet ingredients and put them into our dry ingredients. This is going to form the consistency of a great cookie dough. If you wanted to spruce this up for a holiday, you might add some red dried cranberries, it'll look really pretty, you can put pistachio nuts, pecans. And we are ready to make our cookies. Again, I love the kitchen tools that make life easier. And this happens to be a little cookie scooper, which has a little metal piece in here that will scoop out the dough for you. I like to use a piece of parchment paper, so I don't get my cookie tin dirty, it's easy clean-up. Because I'm all about making the best things that I can make in my kitchen, with the minimal amount of work and the best nutrients that I can make. So, you want to have them all the same size and all the same distance apart. Alright, so you aught me eating the raw cookie dough, this is cookie dough that you actually can eat. Sorry, o.k., so, now, we're going to bake this for, they take about 15 to 20 minutes. But in ten minutes, we're going to check them and we're going to flatten them out. You could make them as balls, but I kind of like them to be flatter. So, when they're a little bit warm, we flatten them out with a spatula, and I'll show you that in ten. After about ten minutes, you want to take a little spatula and just kind of push the cookie down. And the chocolate will ooze out, melt out, it looks so amazingly delicious. We'll just flatten them down, so they look like regular cookie shape and then, we're going to stick them back in for just another, maybe three minutes, because they're almost done. Um, these look amazing, we're just going to place them on the tray, where it already says yum. Because I promise you, you will not believe it, when you taste these cookies. I'm Rosie Battista from ICookNaked.com, ciao for now, while I chow on my cookie.
