Sourdough discard in cookies? Does this taste good?
Oh, yes! They are delicious! I have already read a couple of times about sweet recipes with use sourdough discard and it was time that I tried one. I therefore took my favorite recipe for banana-oat-cookies and twicked it so I could use my sourdough discard by switching it against the flour and mild. It worked beatifully and the cookies get a different taste, but very subtil. But don’t worry, the cookies will not taste sour as you would think, try them!
