Plum, Ginger and Cacao Breakfast Cookies!
These beauties apart from being easy to make (ZING!) — can also be made with any fruit you have! Plums and peaches are in season right now— so i’ve been using these, but apples and pears would also be delish!!! Anyway, i’m obsessed — someone self for help.
Spiced Plum Paleo Breakfast Cookies
[Makes 10-12 cookies]
1 tbsp ghee or coconut oil or butter
3 chopped plums
Juice from 1 lemon
1/4 cup maple syrup (or cocoa sugar)
Simmer all ingredients in a pan
Pinch of orange rind
1 tbsp rose petals
1 tsp cinnamon (or cardamon??)
1.5 cup almond meal (can sub for oat, cassava, einkorn)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
3 tbsp cacao nibs
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp himalayan salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp ashwagandha or maca (optional adaptogen boost!)
Mix Mix Mix — then add the following:
1/3 cup coconut oil or ghee (it can be lightly melted, but no need to go for liquid— think of it like butter! AND add more if you feel it’s need more fat!)
1/4 cup maple syrup (optional sweetener — if you don’t like your cookies sweet, skip it!)
1 tbsp tahini
Mix it all into a big gooey seedy mess, and then using a spoon or your fingers (which work best)— roll into 8-10 smallish balls and press down to make a cookie shape! (you could also just make this into a slice— I mean, you do you!
Pre-heat oven (I didn’t pre-heat but you probably should!) TO 350F and bake for about 15 minutes— or until slightly brown and firmer (I like my cookies soft— but if you’re into hard cookies, you will want to bake for an extra minutes, roughly!).
