After living many years in the Nordics we got obsessed with all the recipes made with oats. The first among all is the porridge, called havregrød in Denmark, that comes in many variations from the sweet to the savoury ones. Today’s recipe uses the oat instead of flour to prepare the traditional chocolate chips cookies making them lighter and a little bit healthier.
