Cocoa Beet Soft Baked Cookies.

Chocolate.  CHECK.  Soft baked cookies.  CHECK.  Cookies full of healthy ingredients that will make you feel great. CHECK.

I saw a recipe for chocolate cookies made with beet juice that looked delicious yet wasn’t quite compatible with my needs.  I love anything with beets and love how energized they make me feel.  How could a cookie with beets in them be wrong?!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cups of soaked dates (more if you want the cookies sweeter)
  • 1/4 cup cashew flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax meal + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp beet powder + 9 tbsp  of water (I get my beet powder from Plum market)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp maca power
  • 1 cup of raisins
  • 3/4 cup hemp seeds
  • You may or may not need to add 1/2 cup of water depending if your batter needs a little more liquid or not.

Directions:

  • Put everything into the blender or food processor. except for the hemp seeds and raisins.
  • Blend until everything is perfectly smooth.
  • Once everything is blended, fold in the hemp seeds and raisins.
  • Spoon silver dollar size cookies on a parchment covered cookie sheet and bake for about 15-17 mins on 350.
