15 Nov All-You-Need Cookie
Finally! A cookie creation that is a delicious accomplishment! Cookie implies a decadent dessert, but the All-You-Need cookie is fully loaded with nutrition and fibre that can be eaten at anytime of the day. What it’s NOT loaded with is sugar. The not-so-secret ingredient is molasses. Not only does it give the cookie a taste of gingersnaps (my fav) but molasses is low glycemic – it digests slowly which helps to stabilize blood sugar levels. Molasses offers amazing nutrition to boot! It contains vital vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6, selenium and potassium. Since molasses isn’t as sweet, there is some added coconut sugar (also low glycemic) but I tend to cut the amount in half. If you are really watching your sugar intake, cut it out completely. As you begin to cut out sugar from your diet, your palate will become more discerning and will appreciate the subtle sweetness. Molasses is usually sweet enough 🙂
I also celebrate the fact this cookie contains the most nutritious nuts and seeds such as walnuts, almonds, coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, chia, flax and sesame seeds! Flax helps to bind the cookie, so there is no need for eggs. I use fermented and dehydrated oats in this recipe (which increases their digestibility) but there is no need to do so.
Eat this cookie and feel satiated, it’s honestly the best!
