9 of the best healthy cookie recipes you can get your mitts on
Believe I might be avoiding getting back into swing of reality by thinking, writing and doing all the baking of cookies. Living the summer holiday dream I say! Then I thought to myself I think it’s time to consolidate all my cookie recipes and see what new ones I can make this year – and so the avoidance continues… So here my dear friends are 9 of my favourite, healthy cookie recipes for you to get mixing and baking with. I’d love your comments below on new flavours and what ingredients or dietary requirements you would like to see recipes for? I’ll keep in mind some more nut free options for school lunchboxes, gluten free and nut free options, and maybe more fruity or spiced (cinnamon etc) ones, but any others please just holler and I will definitely provide. Because you know… cookie monster nom nom nom…
LEMON POPPYSEED ALMOND COOKIES because I’m a child of the 80s and lemon poppyseed was all the rage – delightfully zesty too, so it’s for good reason. Find the recipe HERE
TAHINI WALNUT COOKIES sesame scrumptiousness, much like a traditional Greek sesame cookie but without so much sugar. You can omit the nuts if you want to keep it nut free. Recipe right over HERE
CHOC RAISIN OAT COOKIES. Oldie but a goodie, inspired by travel in USA in my 20’s when it was all about the OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES. I ate lots of them. Then I remembered I could probably make them healthier than those I ate, you’ll find that recipe – HERE
PECAN CRUNCH COOKIES: my mum taught me these, they’re one of her favourites and mine, had to include – love you mum. Find the recipe HERE.
CHOC GINGER COOKIES – such a bangin combination, seriously ginger and other spices in cookies are absolutely heaven. Also a great way to introduce kids to new flavours. They may not like at first but worth a try than not at all right? Find that recipe HERE
PB AND JAM COOKIES maybe another inspired by the US of A, but I’ve obviously Australianised it with jam instead of jelly – hehehe – easy one and fun with kids, be ready to get your hands dirty. Find this recipe over HERE
CHOC ROSEMARY AND ALMOND COOKIES – in the realm of adding ginger to chocolate, the rosemary and chocolate combination in these is next level. Seriously try it and you may never turn back! Find the recipeHERE
PB CHOC CHUNK COOKIES … Ok so as I come to the end of the list I realise I need some more ‘other than chocolately goodness options’ but whilst I create those, keep these on your list, well I’ll keep them on my list and you can on yours if you like – right HERE is your recipe friends.
PEANUT OAT COOKIES made these recently with peanut butter dregs and crumbs of the peanut jar. Yep peanut fans in our house. Australian peanuts are slightly more fatty (oleic acid) than peanuts from other countries so aim to buy those andHEREis your recipe to make the tastiest little cookie bombs!
