GRAIN FREE VEGAN ALMOND COOKIES

Everyone loves a cookie (or two).

That morning coffee indulgence, or 3pm (or even midnight) snack.

These cookies are packed full of almonds. And with the added Tahini which is also rich in healthy fats, amino acids as well as essential vitamins and minerals. Tahini is packed full of all the goodness as well as being high in calcium.

Tahini can also help to balance hormones. Hormones plays an important role in managing our weight, sleep, hunger cues, libido, mood and our sanity! When our hormones are off balance from poor lifestyle habits and food choices we feel it pretty quickly. 

If balancing hormones is your #1 priority this is the most delicious place to start, full of good fats, protein and nutrients your hormones (and taste buds) are going to love you for this!

Here is my recipe for the simplest & easiest minimum effort  

5 I N G R E D I E N T Grain Free Vegan Almond cookies with Tahini.

A good option to make weekly if you want to snack better at 3pm.
I was just able to take a photo before these were inhaled.

Can substitute maple syrup for honey if you are happy to have a non-vegan option.

RECIPE

Vegan Almond Cookies
2 cups almond meal
3/4 cup tahini
1/3 cup maple syrup
Pinch of salt
2 teaspoons of the best quality vanilla extract you can get.

I’ve used sesame seeds as an optional garnish.

Mix all ingredients and roll into 12 balls. Press gently with the back of a fork (or don’t). Place on tray and press down ever so slightly. Bake for 10 mins in a pre-heated oven at 160c (or until they are lightly browned).

Beetroot Bliss Balls

The most luscious and smooth tasting bliss balls you will ever eat. The colour that the beetroot adds to these is a visual treat on its own! And, a great way to get some veggies into the kids.

Ingredients

1 cup dates

1/2 cups beetroot finely grated

1 &1/2 cups almond meal

1/2 cup quick oats

1 cup coconut

2 tbs chia seeds

Additional coconut or sesame seeds to roll in.

Throw it all in the processor for a few minutes then get rolling!
