Hulk Cookies: Naturally Green, Nut & Gluten Free

Ever wonder why bloggers write their life story before a recipe, when all you want to see is the recipe?!

It because of SEO, search engine optimization. The closer we can get to 1,500 words and the more we litter the post with words you might be searching for the more likely Google is to match your words with the right content.

But us bloggers feel your pain. You don’t want to read through all the keywords, buzz words, and fluff words, which is why we’ve created buttons (like the one above) that lets you skip over all our malarkey and get right to the good stuff.

Nutritional Benefits

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.

REAL 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.

Cassava Flour is made from cassava root (a tuber vegetable) that doesn’t offer much in nutritional benefit other than being an alternative to gluten flours and nut flours.

    That is so cool! My son is going to love the green! Will have to make these tonight! I have the 5 seed butter, which has sunflower seeds in it, will that still work to turn it green?

    nice cream sounds heavenly, please explain more! what is nice cream and how do i make it?

    • T1D Living January 15, 2020 at 3:25 pm - Reply

      It is heavenly! Nice cream is vegan ice cream. We make our own with bananas, a little bit of nut mylk, splash of vanilla, almond butter, and salt. Mix all together in your food processor. We spread nice cream in between two cookies, sandwich them, then freeze for about 30 min before eating. De-lish!

    Hey could we do purple passion fruit with hibiscus petals? Oh well, never say I am not deadly creative.

    LOL
