Healthy Raspberry Thumbprint Breakfast Cookies
These healthy cookies are perfect for breakfast.
And seriously, who doesn't want cookies for breakfast?!?!
They have limited ingredients, making them a great whole food breakfast/snack that won't spike blood sugar levels. The complex carbohydrates in the rolled oats, combined with the chia seeds which are a good source of fibre, makes these delicious cookies great for balancing hormone levels in women.
- 2 cups rolled oats (use certified gluten-free if necessary)
- 2 ripe large bananas
- 3 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon true cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- 3 tbsp raspberry jam
1 tsp Yoni Superfood Tonic
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a food processor, add the oats and pulse until a coarse meal forms.
Add the mashed banana, chia seeds, cinnamon, and salt into the food processor and pulse until combined. The dough mixture will be wet and dense.
Using a retractable ice cream scoop or a spoon, scoop the dough into 12 mounds. With the palm of your hand, lightly flatten the dough, then press your thumb into the centre of each cookie to create a well. (If you want to create hearts, use your pointer finger twice to make the well look like a little heart!)
In a small bowl or ramekin, mix the Yoni superfood tonic with the raspberry jam. Then fill each cookie well with the jam.
Bake cookies at 350°F for 12-13 minutes, until the cookies are slightly firm on the outside, but soft and doughy in the middle. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack for 20 minutes before transferring to an air tight container.
These cookies are not overly sweet. Taste the dough (it's safe to eat raw!) and if desired, add 1-3 tbsp of coconut sugar until your taste preference is met.
