My First Gluten-Free Vegan Cookie Recipe

I came up with a simple recipe tonight that I have to share. I wanted a healthy cookie to take with me to work.

I blended (food processor) some walnuts and cashews up. It made a powdery dough texture. I then chopped up dates into tiny pieces. If your not really familiar with dates they’re a perfect substitute for sugar or honey. I added some flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. I soaked red quinoa and added some to the mixture. Quinoa is packed with protein.I put a dash of sea salt into the mix.

  • 1/2 cup of walnuts
  • 1/2 cup of cashews
  • 4 dates chopped into pieces
  • 2 tbs of flax and pumpkin seed and sprouted quinoa
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Dash of cinnamon

After the mixture was together I formed the dough into balls like when you are making cookies. I put them into the oven  on 170 degrees and placed them on the top shelf for about 30 mins. They don’t hold together as well as regular cookie dough but they are good enough to bake. They are full of goodness. It is dairy, wheat and gluten-free and tastes amazing.

This is my very first vegan gluten-free cookie.  My husband even liked them.
