I developed these cookies at the last moment before a party we hosted this past weekend. They were such a huge hit that I decided to share the recipe with you.
If you like to make party favors or treats for friends and neighbors, this wholesome, simple option will keep everyone healthy and smiling through the intensity of the holidays.
Remember to keep mindfulness and exercise alive during the this time. This practice could be as simple as taking a deep breath in and out before each meal and going for a walk once a day.
The more you can maintain routines in the midst of chaotic times, the healthier and happier you will be on the other side.
Be well and stay in touch!
WHOLESOME 4 INGREDIENT COOKIES
You will need equal parts of:
Any nut or seed (I like roasted almonds, walnuts, or sunflower seeds)
GET CREATIVE: add cinnamon; use dried apricots instead of dates.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Oil a cookie sheet with sunflower or coconut oil.
Place all ingredients in a food processor or high-powered blender.
Blend until a thick dough results.
Coat the palms of your hands with a bit of oil to prevent sticking.
Roll small balls of dough between your palms and place them on the cookie sheet.
Once all the dough is rolled, wash your hands.
Using the back of a fork, flatten each cookie.
Bake for 15 minutes.
