I “Heart” Cookies!

heart cookiesI LOVE  that I can make up a batch of cookies without even baking them! Just in time for Valentines Day these little “raw” sweethearts are power packed full of super foods. These are my same “go-to” ingredients that I use to super power my smoothies and snack on throughout the day. Except this time I threw them all into the food processor and blended them into a thick batter and pressed them into delicious yummy little cookies!

You can use anything you want inside. Just pick from wholesome raw and organic ingredients. It is best to use dates to stick them together and then throw in some other goodies like nuts, seeds, goji’s, cacao and super powders (maca, mesquite, cacao, lacuma) which would make them chewy, crunchy, sweet, bitter and scrumptious all at the same time.

It’s nice to know not all cookies have to be baked. These “hearty” bites took all of 15 minutes to prepare and the yield was enough for me to bring to a dinner party of 10 or more. Very little mess was involved plus the excitement of the creation was the biggest part. I didn’t really plan what or how I wanted these cookies to turn out – they just did!

Sweet-Heart Cookies

1 1/2 cups whole raw almonds

2 tbsp hemp seeds

1 cup chopped dates

1/4 cup goji berries

2 tbsp cacao nibs or cocoa powder

1 tbsp agave nectar

1 tsp mesquite powder (optional)

1/2 tsp vanilla powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp sea salt

**for an extra protein boost – add 2 tbsp Sun Warrior Protein Powder

Place all the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until you get a thick “doughy” consistency. Spread out and cut into “heart” shapes with a cookie cutter or roll and flatten into 2 inch cookies.

    These sound perfect, Marni! Wondering where you get your mesquite?

  2. Hi Ricki,

    Mesquite you can get from Navitas naturals or nujima!

    Thanks Marni, I made these today into balls. They’re a good snack to keep in my fridge. I think next time I will add more “stuff”!

  4. Sandy says:

    What is the calorie/piece or nutrient breakdown for these. They sounds great !

    • Hi Sandy,
      I don’t include calories in my recipes because my focus is on the quality of the ingredients ( as calories don’t determine if something is “healthy”). These are made with whole food ingredients and your body will utilize the calories and nutrients in these efficiently and appropriately. Meaning eating one or two of them is a plentiful and balanced snack – regardless of the calories! I hope this makes sense as this is my philosophy for health – we need to break away from numbers and focus on quality ingredients!

Plant-based foods are alkaline-forming, which means they create less acidity in the body. As an added bonus, they also neutralize existing acid! When you work out and train, you are already pushing the acidity limits in your body, so it's important flush it out with plant-based foods. Some of my favourite detoxifying foods that I use in my classes are broccoli, seaweed, and avocados.
