I admit I like to eat cookies, but after eating most cookies I feel pretty bad and like I`ve cheated on myself and my eating plan, but these are the exception. They are guilt free cookies to me because they are packed with a lot of nutrients and fibre and lower in sugar since I used stevia as a sweetener as well as sugar. I got this recipe from Planet Organic`s website. Their store is a great place for vegans and vegetarians to shop as they have the largest selection of natural foods and foods geared towards people who are vegan and vegetarian. Back a few years ago I had stumbled upon their Cosmic Cookie recipe however made adjustments to it due to the fact that I dislike raisins and to what I had at home and what I like. So the recipe for 8-12 cookies is as follows:
1 cup and 2 tablespoons of quick cooking oats
1 cup of whole wheat flour
5 tablespoons of sunflower seeds
3 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds
4 tablespoons of unsweetened shredded coconut
4 tablespoons of almonds
4 tablespoons of dark chocolate chunks (Bernard Callebaut)
2 tablespoons of flax seeds
1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of sea salt
6 dried figs and 4 dried prunes diced
2 tablespoons of water
2 tablespoons of fancy molasses
6 tablespoons of oil(I used a canola and olive oil blend)
1/2 cup of soy milk
2 tablespoons of demura sugar
2 packets of stevia
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
2. Mix all of the dry ingredients together except the sugar and stevia
3. Mix all of the wet ingredients together. Add enough sugar and stevia to your liking for sweetness which is why I had to separate the sweeteners because I can`t exactly know how sweet it will be in with the dry ingredients lol.
4. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together.
5. Spray a cookie sheet with pam or some other oil spray. Use a 1/3 cup to scoop up the mixture and form into patties. I just eyed it so it made 8 cookies instead of 12 lol. You must form the cookies into patties because they are dense and do not contain a lot of oil they will not flatten out like peanut butter cookies. They will retain the shape you shape them in pretty much. Place them on the pan
6. Bake for about 20 minutes. I baked them for about 18 minutes as I live at a higher elevation. They will be ready when you can see the edges turn slightly golden brown which you can`t see from the angle I took pictures at sorry lol.
7. Rest on pan for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool and store in an air tight container and enjoy :)
I had these as a post work out snack with a glass of soy milk last week and they really hit the spot. They aren`t the type of cookies most of you would like to eat when crave cookies though and may be too healthy for some of you to consider a cookie haha.
Would you eat these?
Do you have any healthy/unhealthy cookies you`d like to link me?
