Healthy Christmas Cookies

by Dr Jo

Try this great healthy recipe for Christmas Cookies! It’s full of healthy omega 3 fats to nourish your cells and protect from illness. As a matter of fact, I created this cookie to help my grandchildren stay healthy and smart. Dr. Johanna Budwig thought that if you have the right fats in your cell membranes, you will not get cancer. We all know how much bad fats kids (and us big kids too) eat in all that fast food. So how about making some tastey, health building cookies as a special gift to you kids and loved ones.

Nut Butter No-Bakers

 

Basic recipe:

¼ cup flaxseed oil

¾ cup almond butter

? teaspoon stevia extract white powder

½ cup unsweetened frozen concentrated apple juice

¼ cup carob powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup raisins

4 Tablespoons ground flaxseeds

1 cup rice or millet or quinoa flour or use about 2 cups of oat or rye flakes

 

            Mix the oil and almond butter together.  Mix the stevia into the carob powder.  Then, mix all the rest of the ingredients together in the order given.  The amount of flour or oat or rye flakes you use will depend partly on your oil, so don’t add it all at once, just add it a little bit at a time until you get it to the consistency you want. 

 

            Roll into 1 Tablespoon-sized balls.  Serve these cookies as the rolled balls, or flatten them if you like more of a cookie shape.  Press a walnut or pecan into the top of each cookie if you like. Or roll the balls in fine coconut flakes. Coconut adds wonderful fats to the cookie too.

 

            To keep the mixture from sticking to your hands, put a little olive oil out on a saucer and then dip your hands and your spoon you are using in the oil.  That makes it a lot easier to roll the balls.
