These cookies are packed with all the healthy things. Typical. But honestly, I don’t think taste is compromised in this recipe. Aside from being pretty good for you they’re also delicious and are great for squashing sweet cravings.
There’s a lot of ingredients in these but they’re actually really easy to make. They make a great on-the-go snack to pick up those blood sugar levels when you need it (I can’t be the only one who gets seriously hangry) since they’re full of nuts and seeds to give you a nice little boost of energy.
I feel like I’ve said in almost all of my recipe posts that my food will give you energy but it’s true! Eating healthy, plant based food gives you a crazy amount of energy. It’s kind of awesome. Peace out, fatigue and mental fog!
I’ve adapted this recipe from Oh She Glows, a cool vegan blog, but I changed a few things to make it a bit more to my liking. My version has egg in it but if you want an egg-less, vegan, version just substitute 1 tbsp of ground flax mixed with 2 tbsp of water in place of the egg (which is what the original recipe on OSG includes anyways;) ). You can check out the Oh She Glows blog here.
Here’s the mile long list of ingredients (I promise it’s worth it!).
- I cup oat flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup slivered or sliced almonds
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp raw cacao nibs
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- a sprinkle of cinnamon (I never measure cinnamon. You’re on your own.)
- a sprinkle of salt (Ya, didn’t measure that either. I believe in you. )
- 1/2 tsp of baking soda
- 1 egg
- 1/4 almond butter
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- a sprinkle winkle of vanilla extract (You got this.)
Here’s what you do:
Preheat the oven to 350F
Combine Dry ingredients
Combine Wet ingredients
Pour Wet ingredients into Dry Ingredients and stir your little heart out until there’s no more dry floury bits.
Roll dough into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet (I used coconut oil to grease my cookie sheets).
Bake for 13-15 mins until they get a little golden-y brown on top.
Let them cool for a minuet or 2 before removing them from the cookie sheet. Things that come out of the oven are hot. And also crumbly.
