Who doesn't enjoy a delicious cookie for a wee treat? But there are healthy cookies and extremely unhealthy ones!
So as you can imagine mine are extremely healthy cookies but also delicious and a wee treat for my gut microbe buddies as well as my taste buds!!
So these have a mix of white and rye flour, chia seeds, raw cacao powder, dark chocolate, hazelnuts and tahini, along with coconut sugar so plenty of fibre and polyphenols for my gut microbes!
My new game is trying to add as many prebiotics to my food as I can, so even my baking gets a gut makeover!
It's all about healthy swaps, not denying yourself a well deserved treat!
I had just thought of another addition which would have worked well, some orange zest, which is high in pectin and also polyphenols, so I will add some to my next batch!
Also some people prefer crisp cookies and some prefer a more cakey texture so you can do either option!
For crisp cookies, use the smoosh method, which is bake them for 10 minutes, then take them out and smoosh them with a fork, then bake for a further 5 minutes.
For thicker cakey cookies just lightly flatten the dough before you bake them.
These are really delicious and healthy too so I hope you try them! Your gut and your taste buds will thank you!
So here is my recipe
