These berry scented beauties are an energy and protein bar combined in a cookie form. Perfect to have after your workout or as a pick-up snack during the day. They’re a good mix of plant based protein, healthy fats, minerals like calcium and magnesium, vitamin C from berries and baobab and simple carbs from the dried fruit. You can indulge your sweet craving while feeding both mind and body.
Makes 8-10 small cookies
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1 cup almonds (can use almond or oat flour but will need to add more tahini or dried apricots as the dough will be drier)
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla powder or extract
- 1 sachet of Mixed Berry Multitasker
- 1/4 cup of acai/blueberry/blackberry powder or a mixed of all
- 1 tablespoon of baobab powder
- 1/2 cup tahini (almond or peanut butter would be nice as well, just make sure they’re runny)
- 1 cup dried apricots (can use dates or dried figs as well)
- optional: a handful of dried raspberries or goji
Place the coconut, almonds, salt, salt, protein and berry powders, baobab in a food processor and blend until fine.
Next, add the tahini, apricots and if using, raspberries or goji.
Process until the dough sticks together. *Note: if your apricots or dates are not soft and gooey, soak in warm water for a couple of minutes. Then drain and squeeze to remove excess water before adding to the dry ingredients.
Place the dough between two pieces of baking paper and roll out with a rolling pin or simply flatten out with your hands.
Using a cookie cutter, cut out your cookies.
Either enjoy straight away or place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes for them to harden a bit more. (You could also bake them at a very low temperature like 100/110 degrees for about 10/15 minutes to have more of a baked cookie texture.)
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer.
