Who doesn’t like Cookies?
We all have our special memories linked to cookies. Christmas cookie decorating sessions, the smell of a freshly backed tray of goodness straight from the oven, dipping a cookie into a glass of milk… Cookies bring back the feeling of happy moments in our lives.
We often treat ourselves with a cookie, but they can be more than just a sweet sin. Cookies normally contain a lot of sugar and butter, which is not really compatible with an healthy diet. I packed these oat & raisin cookies with good-for-you ingredients. Living a healthy lifestyle is not about cutting out things that we like to eat, it´s about developing them and make them better for our bodies, so we can still have our happy-cookie-moments.
Recipe by Lisa Sahin
Recipe makes about 12 cookies
2 Tbsp chia seeds
5 Tbsp water
1 1/2 cups 150 g rolled oats
4 Tbsp whole weed flour
1/3 cup 90 g honey (or maple sirup if you want the cookies to be vegan)
1/8 cup 50 g coconut oil
1 Tsp baking powder
1 Tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup 60 g raisins or dried cranberries
1/4 cup 30 g chopped almonds
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (170°C)
- Mix the chia seeds with the water and set aside for five minutes
- Combine all ingredients and mix with your hands until a dough forms
- Line a baking tray with baking paper
- Use an ice cream scoop to portion the cookies and line them up on the tray. Leave a little room between them, because they will spread out a little while baking
- Press the cookies flat with the palm of your hand
- Bake the cookies for about 15-20 minutes until they turn golden brown
- Let them cool down
