Green Weeks: Superfoods in your tummy

March 9, 2010

Green Weeks, Day Two 
Superfood Good ‘n Green Smoothie

  • 1 lovely banana
  • 1-2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 cup (or so) parsley
  • 1 full tbsp maca
  • 1 tbsp ProGreens or green powder
  • generous good shakes of cinnamon (we all love you Cinnamon!)
  • 1-1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • few drops of liquid Stevia, or other sweetener
  • Ice

 Blend and top with goji berries, raw cacao nibs, and a superfoods cookie.

Oh, but you don’t know have any superfood cookies laying around? Well, then you’ll just have to make some!

This recipe is inspired by the lovely lady responsible for the delicious blogging at Sweet & Savory.
She posted a recipe for Flourless PB & Coconut Cookies that looked so good, I just had to make them… with a twist.

My gluten free, vegan version, dubbed Almond Butter Coconut Cookies, or Raw Superfood Cookies, depending on your preference, goes a little something like this…

Almond Butter Coconut Cookies with Superfood Status
Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw almond butter
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/3 cup agave syrup
  • 1 tbsp baking soda (not raw. omit for raw cookies)
  • 2 tbsp almond flour or millet flour (or any other flour you’d like)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Handful(s) of goji berries and carob or chocolate chips

Mix as best you can; it will be sticky!
Plop and press onto a lined cookie sheet or dehydrator tray. You get to chose if you want these baked, dehydrated, or just plain good ‘ole cookie dough raw. (I tried all, and it’s delicious any way!)

These are honestly some of the best cookies ever. SO GOOD. Thanks Sweet & Savory!

And you really have to try the smoothie with the cookies… or I guess the cookie crumbed up inside the smoothie. It’s sooooooooo good!

Let the Green Weeks continue!

How long and what temperature did you bake it for? I did 176c for 10mins and it browned quite a bit but the middle weren’t baked. Stick it in for another 5-10mins and it turned very brown and tasted bitter (burnt?). 🙁 I did substitute almond flour for coconut flour though as I ran out and never seen millet flour here – nit sure if this made it worst? Can this be substituted with rice flour or is there other flour works/taste better? Thanks

I made these cookies yesterday, and they were awesome! I didn’t have everything on hand, so I used pure maple syrup instead of agave, and sweet cacao nibs instead of carob chips. YUM! It’s so hard to find recipes that I can feed my whole family (we have a looong list of food allergies!) I’m excited to try more of your recipes! 🙂
