Right now, I have cooked steel-cut oatmeal, water, banana, cinnamon powder, sugar, and dark chocolate in my cookie batter in the following amounts:
- 2 cups of cooked oatmeal
- 1 banana
- half teaspoon of cinnamon
- ~30 grams of chocolate
- ~2.5 teaspoons of cane sugar
- enough water so that the batter is somewhat sticky
This is an adaptation of the "healthy two-ingredient breakfast cookies" recipe on CafeDelites.com.
When I baked it (at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes), however, the cookies came out as leathery, chocolate- flavored skins encasing a blend of bananas and chocolate- flavored oatmeal. It seemed as if the insides hadn't been cooked at all. I tried baking it for an additional five minutes, but doing so didn't change anything.
Why did this happen? And what should I do to fix this problem? Thanks in advance!
