Seed N' Spice Cookies

—  found in  Food  —

Hello my joyous readers,

I love cookies. In fact, some would say I'm a cookie monster. Years ago I was also asugar-addict and my cookie monster habit certainly did not make me very joyous. I would eat too many cookies, feel bloated, fat and gross. I still eat cookies today, but because my diet is very balanced I don't suffer from sugar cravings and I only eat healthy gourmet cookies these days!

I created these cookies for my Morning Show segment on healthy boob foods last week. They could be eaten raw or cooked, it's really up to you!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1 banana
  • 5 medjol dates, seeds removed
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until combined.
  2. Grease cookie sheet or cover with parchment paper.
  3. Form batter into 1 inch balls and press with a fork on to cookie sheet. Bake for 10-11 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Makes 10-12 cookies.

These cookies are gluten-free, refined-sugar-free, dairy-free and absolutely delicious.

Enjoy!

Your "SEED N’ SPICE COOKIES" sound great. Do you have a calorie count on this recipe? I will leave a comment after I try out the recipe. Thanks. :)

Hi I wondered if it would be possible to replace the banana with something else... my little one has just become intolerant to this :-( Thanks Miriam
