This nutritious and delicious no-bake holiday recipe is simple to make with the use of a blender, and a food processor. Essential kitchen tools in my books, that I use in almost all of my recipes. Seeing as I often get asked, the food processor I recommend is the Cuisinart 8-Cup Food Processor, Silver FP-8SVC. […]
These delicious and nutritious cookies are made from whole unrefined ingredients, with no added processed sugars, oils, flours or animal products. The rolled oats and peanuts provide plant-based protein, fiber-rich complex carbs, and good fats – for steady energy. Instead of using processed sweeteners, I used whole dates and a little maple syrup – both optimally healthy options. Creating your own ‘flour’ using whole rolled oats and peanuts, offers more nutrition, and results in a lower-glyemic dessert. No need for added oils in this recipe! just natural peanut butter, which is packed with nutrients and rich flavor. While these cookies are meant to be enjoyed as a special dessert, these cookies ARE healthy enough to have for breakfast or as a snack. They may taste indulgent, but they are much healthier than any store-bought cookies!
These delicious and nutritious cookies are made with only whole foods ingredients, free of all refined flour/sugar/oil or animal products. Composed of mostly oat bran, a nutrient-dense food rich in protein, fiber, and iron. These cookies are sweetened naturally with homemade applesauce (using hand picked seasonal organic apples!), local maple syrup (a minimally processed local sweetener), and dried apples. The almond flakes provide some healthy monounsaturated fat, protein, flavour and texture. Mixing in the whole toasted oats gives these cookies more texture, and hydrating the dried apples with steeped chai tea gives these cookies an extra boost of flavour!
