Recipe: The “Rocky” Cookie
All of us have sweet cravings, but very rarely can we satisfy those cravings with something healthy that your body can actually use for sustainable energy.
Well, I recently came across a snack that can do just that. It’s from Hollywood icon Sylvester Stallone’s book Sly Moves (which is a great book on health and fitness). It’s actually a cookie he created when he was filming the Rocky movies that would keep his energy levels up all day.
So give them a try! I usually double up on the recipe because they go so fast (you can’t eat just one), and that’s okay because they’re good for you!
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/8 cup brown rice flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/8 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup Quaker old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons water
1/2 tablespoon molasses
Preheat over to 375 degrees. In a medium-size bowl, combine wheat and rice flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, brown sugar, and oats. Make in indentation in the center and add egg, olive oil, water, and molasses. Mix vigorously until the dough is moistened. Roll into tablespoon-size balls and place two inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until done. Remove cookies from oven and cool on wire rack. They should be soft and slightly chewy.
