These foods are widely consumed in day-to-day, is the practicality hungry, the media influence or the sheer desire to chew.
Cookies and crackers are visually attractive, especially for children. Always they have flashy packaging and can offer up gifts.
full versions without gluten or "fit" correspond to an adaptation of the market that has served nRoe consumer demands, even though almost never offer what is proposed on the label.
This cookie that brought to you can be prepared with different flavors. Today, I tested with pineapple, banana, spices and good (really!) Options flours and bran, which exert positive functions in the body.

Oats are great source of protein and betaglucans; excellent for hormonal and bowel health; a cholesterol help correct cycle within the body; and it is to assist in the treatment of diabetes.
Coconut is a good source of fat and a flour has zero starch.

COOKIES FOR AFTERNOON SNACK

½ cup pineapple
1 medium banana nanica
2 tablespoons () filled with hydrated chia seed
2 tablespoons () of coconut oil (liquid)
3 tablespoons (soup) of oat bran
3 tablespoons () of grated coconut flour or desiccated coconut (unsweetened)
1 spoon (soup) of fennel seed
Cinnamon powder
2 tablespoons () of psyllium

[If you want to sweeten, use 1 to 2 tablespoons (soup) of coconut sugar, honey or cane syrup.
I did not feel the need, for both the banana and the pineapple was ripe and sweet enough.]

With mixer, mash the fruit and chia. Adds coconut oil and beat some more. This mixture can also be mixed with a fork but the alloy is further secured to the crushing creaky.
In a bowl, add the oats, coconut flour, fennel and cinnamon. Stir well until smooth.
Finally, add the psyllium and knead to form more solid consistency. At this time, the psyllium will absorb much of the liquid mass, making it more pliable. To do this, leave the mixture resting in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Mold cookies the size of a real or larger 1 coin. Another option is to get them in the form of sticks or rectangle. The more compact, crispier is.
Grease the form with coconut oil.
Bake in a low oven for 15 minutes. When browned in a part, turn them and bake another 10 minutes, always watching. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator. Lasts 1 week!

* The mass can be used as a crispy crust pies (as a cupcake silicon, for example) and filled with fruit. As a suggestion, use a crushed pineapple, coconut oil and organic chocolate with cupuaçu.
