One of our favorite, go-to energy snack is our "Energy cookie," or, as some call them, "Epic cookies."  They are loaded with protein, fiber, and good fats.  They are delicious and appropriate for a morning snack/breakfast, or as an afternoon snack when your blood sugar is low.  We've made them with all different ingredients, but the following recipe is our favorite mix right now.  

 

Epic energy cookies

(Adapted - loosely - from My New Roots)

 

2 Cups Gluten-free (if required) old fashioned rolled oats

1 1/4 cups Almond Flour (meal)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp sea salt (fine)

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 can Great Northern Beans (or white kidney beans)

1 egg

1 Tbs chia seeds with 3 Tbs water

1/4 cup maple syrup (grade B)

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla

2/3 cup chopped dates

2/3 cup dark chocolate chips (gluten free, if required)

2/3 cup sprouted pumpkin seeds

 

Preheat Oven to 350 degree F

Makes 18-24 cookies

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

 

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl, and stir completely.  Combine wet ingredients in a blender and pour over dry ingredients.  Mix with a spoon to combine.  Add dates, chocolate chips, and pumpkin seeds - mix to combine.  Using a large ice cream scoop, scoop out an even amount of batter and place on cookie sheet - flatten slightly.  

Place in preheated oven for 18-23 minutes.  We prefer ours to be on the "more done" side.  Serve alone, or with homemade chia pudding (our next blog!!).
