Nutritional values

Hearty spelt flour and tender oat flakes bring a whole lot of satiating fibre and many B vitamins into play. Vitamins from the B group work particularly well together as a team and are also considered "anti-stress vitamins". The secondary plant substances ferulic and ellagic acid from strawberries have been proven to have a cancer-preventive effect. They are also real vitamin packages. Plenty of vitamin C, K and folate are contained.

Unfortunately not everyone can tolerate strawberries. Alternative: blueberries (outside the season take frozen goods and use defrosted) or fresh ripe mango. You can also bake the cookies outside the Easter time and enjoy them as no snack. Then cut out the dough with cookie cutters of your choice.

Mix together both flours, oats, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Add butter and buttermilk and beat with the dough hook of a hand mixer until smooth.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface about 1 cm (approximately 1/2-inch) thick. Cut out 12 rounds, about 9 cm (approximately 3 1/2 inches) in diameter, with an inverted glass or small bowl.
