Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal Cookies, Yes Please! - Bruce's Roots
Chocolate chip breakfast cookies are a thing, right? Well they are now!
As you can tell from my latests posts, am adding lots of healthy sweet treats. All in moderation is my belief when it comes to food. These are so easy to make and delicious.
Gluten-free, vegan and nut- free.
These are easy for people who don't want to spend lots of time in the kitchen making one recipe... me! I didn't even add baking powder. You could change up the recipe and add almond butter or pumpkin seed butter.. that would be divine.
It requires only one bowl and no food processors.
I've added sun dried (gelatinized) maca by Organika to boost energy, balance hormones, support stress symptoms and increase sex drive. Maca is a root that has been ground into a powder and is considered an adaptogen as it helps the body adapt to stress. There are many different forms of stress and it could range from working out hard, shift work, an imbalance in the body or it can have an emotional component.
Eating a fresh whole foods plant-based diet is the first step then someone can slowly add in superfoods and adaptogens. These don't replace a healthy diet, they're just add ons or a boost for the body.
- 2 ripe organic bananas, peeled
- 1 cup organic old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup organic unsweetened coconut shreds

- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds

* with respect to maca, please consult your health care practitioner to ensure there are no contraindications if you have any medical conditions.
I hope you enjoy. I'm definitely the creative type in the kitchen and I don't like to measure everything perfectly. I'm a blood analyst and holistic nutritionist that cooks for fun... no chef here!
