Cookies that taste good and are actually good for you!
I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but in the evening I tend to want something sweet and usually go for some chocolate with 70% cocoa.  I enjoy it, but sometimes I’d like something else without resorting to something that’s full of sugar and unhealthy fats.
Today I decided that I was going to invent a cookie that is tasty, sweet and still good for me.  So here’s what I did…
 I mixed together 1/2 cup raw almond butter and 1/2 cup raw honey
 I added 1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
I added 1/2 cup raw organic sunflower seeds
And 1 tsp. Celtic sea salt
 Then I added 1/4 cup raw organic cacao nibs
 And two tablespoons of raw chia seeds
 I mixed it all together and used my 1 tablespoon cookie scooper to dollop them onto a parchment-lined cookie tray
 I baked them at 350F for 16 mins., rotating the cookie trays halfway.

*Update!!* I remade these cookies yesterday with a couple of changes and they’re soooo good! I melted a 100g 70% cocoa chocolate bar with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and mixed it into the batter.


I also used a mixture of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and slivered almonds instead of all sunflower seeds.
