2/3 cup olive oil
2/3 cup natural yogurt
1 tabs baking powder
a packet of crushed walnuts

               Remove the dough from the bowl.
               Take the egg whites and put them into a little bowl.
               Put the crushed walnuts in a bowl too.
               Grap an oven tray and put some parchment paper.
