Superfood Anytime Cookies

I’m always trying to put together recipes that use almond meal.  Since I started making my own almond milk, I constantly have it kicking around.  You can dehydrate it into almond flour, but who wants to do the extra work?

These cookies are healthy enough for breakfast or a snack.  Lightly sweet, hearty, a bit cakey and full of superfoods.  They come together quickly, and best of all, you only need one bowl.  I like to make them in my stand mixer, but with a little elbow grease you could do it by hand too.

Superfood Anytime Cookies

Makes about 28

1 large ripe banana, mashed

1/2 cup pumpkin puree (either canned or homemade)

1/2 cup almond butter (if using unsalted, add 1/2 tsp salt)

2 tbsp coconut oil 

3 tbsp agave nectar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1-2 tsp cinnamon (I like lots)

1/2 cup almond meal

1/2 cup spelt flour

1 cup rolled oats or spelt flakes

1 tbsp each: flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp hearts

3 tbsp goji berries

1/4 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut

2 tbsp chopped pecans

2 tbsp cacao nibs

Preheat oven to 350.

Add all ingredients from banana to cinnamon in a bowl.  Combine well.  Add almond meal, flour and oats and combine.  Add your mix ins and stir until just incorporated.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Drop by rounded teaspoon, flatten gently and shape.  The cookies will not spread much, so they can be close together.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until lightly browned.  Cool 5 mins on cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.

I plugged the recipe into an online calorie calculator and came up with 113 calories, 7g fat, 3g protein per cookie.
