15 Minutes to A Healthy, Delicious, Gluten-Free Vegan Treat.
Have you ever eaten a cookie after a workout or yoga class and felt guilty about it? I have a perfect after-exercise cookie recipe for you. It’s rich in fiber, iron, magnesium, vitamins B and other nutrients. It is also vegan, low calorie, gluten-free, added sugar-free and has avocado for fat. Oh, and it takes 15 minutes to make, so you have no excuses not to try baking it.
Note: If you don’t need to avoid gluten, both whole wheat flour and spelt flour work well in this recipe.
Perfect Post-Workout Cookie
2 cups rolled oats (gluten-free variety is fine)
1 cup gluten-free flour mix
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
¾ cup walnut pieces
½ cup dried cranberries
¾ cup raisins
2 mashed bananas
1 mashed medium avocado
1/3 cup olive oil
2-3 packets Stevia
1/3 cup water
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix all dry ingredients. Slowly mix in the wet ingredients. Mix well to combine. Lightly oil a cookie sheet. Using a spoon, place cookies on the cookie sheet about one inch apart. Bake for 12 minutes, or until the cookie edges are starting to get darker.
Allow to cool on a baking rack or plate and enjoy.
