You’re here for the recipe, right? So let’s cut to the chase! These GREEN Cookies are bomb! Not only are they fabulous as a daycare snack (because they are nut-free), but they are super festive for St. Patrick’s Day & Christmas and are great as a frozen treat with some banana nice-cream sandwiched between them. MMMMmmmMMM!
Because I’m sure you’re probably wondering… the green color comes from a chemical reaction between sunflower seeds and baking soda – no dyes needed – just mother nature at her finest.
5 Ingredient GREEN Cookies
- 1 1/4 cup Sunflower Butter
- 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
- 1 Egg
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 2 tsp Cinnamon/Pumpkin Pie Spice
- splash Vanilla Extract (optional)
- Bake at 325F for 12 minutes
Sunflower Seeds contain a solid amount of selenium, which plays a big role in detoxification! And they are a good source of magnesium. Magnesium is a super important mineral for anyone with an autoimmune disease. Read my post about magnesium and autoimmunity here. I like to use the Sunbutter brand.
Maple Syrup is also high in magnesium and is a great natural sweetener!
Eggs, especially when local pasture raised, are an excellent source of protein and healthy fats. They are loaded with Omega 3’s and have a high Vitamin A, D, & E content.
