Nutritional values

Even though the vegan Easter cookies are not baked with wholemeal flour, they still contain plenty of fiber from the oat flakes. This soluble fibre called beta-glucan has a positive effect on cholesterol levels. The EFSA (European Food and Saftey Authority) agrees with this and approves a health claim for the cereal: ...Oat beta-glucan lowers the cholesterol level in the blood. Lowering blood cholesterol levels can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

The dough for the vegan Easter cookies is very crumbly, so you have to work it very carefully. If you like, you can also squeeze the lemon and make a sugar icing for the Easter bunny biscuits from the juice and icing sugar. Spread the biscuits with it after they have cooled down.
