Solid ingredients integrate everything and reserve

. With everything already beaten, it's time to integrate the flour and oat mixture into the bowl little by little until it forms a homogeneous mass

. The beaten egg with the oil, the softened butter, the yogurt and the sweetener are the base to later bind the solid part.
The time to pour the dough into the molds is the same as in the previous recipe. You have to let the dough sit well in the mold, but here, instead of baking, we cook in the microwave for about 90 seconds
