Im feeling benevolent. Here’s my really simple recipe for whole food cookies. They are tasty, real quick to prep and bake and are totally healthy.
Fun Woman’s Anytime Whole Food Cookies.
2 Organic Bananas (use mashed apple or pear instead – but not too wet)
2/3 cup of dry ingredients, such as grounds Oats, (I grind mine in a coffee grinder), I may fill a 2/3 cup with a mix of ground oats, ground coconut, ground flax, psyllium, or almond meal
Optional: 3 mashed medjool dates for sweetness (soak em til they become soft, then mash em up and add)
1/2 cup Currents or/and some crushed nuts and/or seeds
Add about 1 tsp Spices (ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg for example)
Add a smile from your heart (awww…goodness). If you can’t manage that, add a smirk from your smugness that you’re making badass healthy cookies).
Mash banana, add oatmeal/dry stuff and mix. Add the fruit, nuts and spices and mix. When you are adding your ingredients, you want a mix that is not wet and sloppy. It doesn’t have to be stiff either.
Cook in oven 150C degrees (300F) for 15-18 mins. If you’re a raw foodie, dehydrate them instead.
Let em cool a bit (they firm up). Eat em, or store em – they last better in the fridge…but let’s face it, they won’t last.
Makes around 6 cookies.
Make different combo’s.
Substitute the banana with mashed, cooked pear or apples.
