Cookies are one of my favourite snacks and since making everything from scratch and entirely from plants, I’ve been exploring ways to make my own cookies. I've been trying different ways to combine them, make them gluten free, lactose free anddddd refine sugar free but really, they are just made of wholesome ingredients! Until you try them it's a hard thing to get your head around. So before making any excuses, I implore you to get down to your local shop, grab the ingredients and get creating.
I love that the main ingredient is ground almonds. Each time I create something I try to think about how each of the ingredients will support my body. In case you wanted to know, almonds are high in healthy monounsaturated fats (the beneficial kind of fat), fiber, protein, vitamin E, magnesium and Vitamin B2 (1, 2, 3). Almonds are a great snack for fuelling your body and one that leaves you feeling satisfied because of its protein and fat combination. Then you add the nutritional benefits of ginger and coconut oil and chia seeds and oats and honey and lemon into the mix! The only problem is, everyone else loves these cookies in my house!!
