Healthy Superfood Cookies (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Print

These Healthy Superfood Cookies are not only gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan, but they’re also packed full of nutritious super foods. They are the perfect cookie to enjoy for breakfast, snack, or any time of day!

Who doesn’t love a cookie that you can eat for BREAKFAST?! I’m all about dessert for breakfast-especially when it’s packed with nutrients! These cookies are full of super foods from all of the different seeds and are sweetened with some maple syrup. I also love how versatile these are as you can sub out different nuts, seeds, and fruits depending on what you have on hand. I used unsweetened applesauce in my batch but you could easily sub this out for mashed banana or even pumpkin. These cookies were such a hit in my house that the whole batch was gone in just a few days. They are the perfect snack, breakfast, or even dessert! I love to pair mine with a yogurt bowl and some nut butter-the perfect balanced snack. I just know that you will love these, enjoy!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Almond flour is a popular alternative to traditional wheat flour. It's low in carbs, packed with nutrients and has a slightly sweeter taste. Almond flour may also provide more health benefits than traditional wheat flour, such as reducing “bad” LDL cholesterol and insulin resistance.
