So I baked. Today was definitely a day that needed cookies. Lots of cookies.
I threw together a giant batch of SCM cookies! These vegan "Super-Charge Me" cookies from Eat, Drink and be Vegan are the BEST. Seriously, thank you Dreena Burton, these super healthy and delicious cookies never fail me!
I changed up the original recipe a little, here's what I came up with today:
1 c. oats
2/3 c. spelt flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 T. unsweetened coconut
1/3 c. chopped dried apricots
1 tsp. baking powder
2 T. ground flaxseeds
2 T. agave syrup
2 T. almond butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 T. hemp milk
Mix the oats, spelt flour, salt, cinnamon, coconut, apricots and baking powder together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix together the ground flaxseeds, agave syrup, almond butter, vanilla and hemp milk. Stir until well combined.
Pour the wet mixture into the oat mixture and stir until a delicious dough forms (dough > actual cookie). You might need to add a little more hemp milk if the mixture is too dry!
Shape the dough into 10-11 big cookies, and place them about 1 inch apart on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, until just slightly brown on the bottoms (trust me, you want them to stay nice and chewy!)
Remove cookies from cookie sheet.....
and then eat like 5 of them (hey, they're healthy!)....while watching Wimbledon quarterfinals...and icing your swollen face.
A successful day off! Also including a solid bike ride, and now off to a fundraiser for my sister's Ethiopia trip!
