Make Traditional Recipes Healthy & Fun
While we’re on the path towards optimal health, we also want a treat now and then.
Whether it’s my homemade vegan brownies or your favorite snack or protein bar from your local health food store…it’s really fun to try new recipes. I like to take regular recipes like your traditional oatmeal cookie and tweak it to my liking. I highly suggest you do the same – it’s fun!
Please check out this following recipe of mine that I created. It’s a scone textured oatmeal cookie made with chocolate rather than raisins AND it’s HIGH IN FIBER…WOO-HOO! Let’s go!
Cyn’s Oatmeal Cookie Recipe
Preheat conventional oven to 350 degrees
Mix 1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds with 3 Tablespoons water in a small bowl (this is your egg replacer)
Then Mix the following really well in a large bowl:
2 cups gluten-free and/or organic oats
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup vegan butter
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
1/2 cup almond butter (or nut/seed butter of your choice)
3/4 cup chocolate chips or cacao nibs
1 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. baking soda
After mixing above ingredients, also mix in your small bowl of ground flax seed and water, then roll or pat into flat cookie shapes onto non-stick cookie sheets or ones lined with parchment paper.
Bake for about 12 – 18 minutes or slightly golden brown on the edges.
Be careful when taking out of the oven, since they may break before cooling.
I hope you like these non-traditional, high-fiber, vegan snacks. If you have any recipes that you’d like to share with me, please comment below or message me on Facebook .
