Hurray! A raw cookie recipe that is nut-free and gluten-free. I created these two-bite nuggets for all the joyous readers out there (and your kids) who cannot eat nuts but can eat seeds.
Most schools in North America do not allow peanuts, so this is a wonderful raw cookie recipe that as long as your school allows seeds, you can make these for your little ones as a wonderful snack! Be sure to watch my segment from the Morning Show below on healthy lunchbox ideas for back to school!
I personally love these two-bite chocolate chips nuggets as a mid-afternoon powersnack to keep me joyous and energized!
*If you use raw cacao powder instead of protein powder you will likely need to make the nuggets a bit sweeter because raw cacao is quite bitter. You could add honey or maple syrup.
Makes 15-18 nuggets if you make them 2-bites worth. :)
I suggest 1-2 as a snack. Of course that all depends how large you make them!
In the segment this morning, the lunchbox ideas I shared are as follows:
Salmon salad sandwich. I used the dressing from the Creamy Potato Salad from chocolate avocado pudding. The protein powder I used for the 2-bite nuggets is Genuine Health's vegan proteins+, chocolate.
Maple Banana Grilled Sandwich from Joyous Health. Instead of almond butter, I used sunflower seed butter.
Nut-free Trail Mix Recipe:
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup dried organic cranberries
1/4 cup dairy/nut/gluten-free chocolate chips
You may have noticed that I had little love notes on some of the lunch boxes I shared on the segment. When I was a little girl my mom would do this for me. It always made me feel joyous! You could also put in thoughtful quotes or funny jokes. Spread the love!
Any questions, please ask or comment below.
Have a joyous day and all the best for back-to-school!
ps. The lunchboxes were BPA-free plastic. I bought them at a little kitchen store in Owen Sound when I was doing a radio show/book signing up there called Stokes.
