This recipe has been blowing my mind and deeply exciting my tastebuds and senses since I first made and intuitively put together a batch of these delicious cookies a week ago!
They are super simple, require no processed sweetener (not even beloved maple!). They are a great wholesome treat to have on hand for afternoon tea, a snack at work, the kid’s lunchbox’s and or any other excuse you can make in your day to open the cookie jar and sit down with one of these amazing treats in your mouth!
…Okay, enough cookie-talk, let’s get to the cookie-cooking!
2 tablespoons of organic cardamon powder (or seeds)
1 tsp of fennel seeds
1/2 tsp of fine organic sea salt
200ml of home-made organic melted ghee or coconut oil
20 organic dates soaked, de-pitted and mashed into a puree or blended.
1 tsp of organic pure vanilla essence
* Note: If you are celiac, use ‘gluten-free un-contaminated oats‘.
**Pre-heat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes while you prepare your cookie mix.
Place all dry ingredients; oats, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon powder, cardamon powder & sea salt into a large mixing bowl.
Prepare your dates: take the pits out of the dates and place dates in a medium bowl. Cover dates in hot water and let soften for 3-4 minutes. Once dates are soft use a fork and mash the dates with the water to make a date puree. (It’s ok to leave some chunks!) Add the date puree to the dry mix of oats and seeds.
Now melt your ghee or coconut oil and stir into the dry mix with the dates.
Add vanilla essence and stir with a wooden spoon or clean hands until the wet and dry ingredients have mixed well together and your happy with the consistency.
Take some melted ghee or coconut oil and oil your baking tray or use a sheet of baking paper.
Take a small piece of cookie mix and roll into a ball in your hands then flatten with the palms of your hand to create a circular cookie shape.
Place your tray of cookies in the oven and bake for approx 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Take them out once they’re done and let them cool before stacking them in your favourite cookie jar or container!
Voila! Your cookies are now ready for your nourishing pleasure! Yum!! :)

It is raining today and this cold change has got me craving a warm hot chocolate ~ though not just any kind of hot chocolate from a café will do. I want something real, smooth, creamy and chocolaty!
I got the inspiration while I was out and about picking something up from the post office… I could have orderd a hot choc from the local café and I didn’t… I wanted to alcehmise my own delicious intuitive brew at home so I asked my hot choc urge to be patient until I got home and this is what I came up with – and it’s deeelicious, scrumptious, smooth, creamy, chocolatey and naturally sweet (with love!) – nothing else added!
Enjoy this cosy, warming, sugar-free, beverage to fulfil your secret (or not so secret) rainy day hot choc fantasies!
You will need:
1 cup of your choice of milk (coconut milk, almond milk, rice milk or unhomogenised dairy)
1 tbsp dark carob powder
1 tsp raw cacao powder
½ tsp Ceylon cinnamon powder
Your juicy, creative hot chocalicious love!
To Brew: Pour your milk into a pot and add carob, cacao and cinnamon. Stir with a small whisk to blend powders together nicely or use a spoon or fork. Bring to a gently bubbling boil until your chocy drink gets a little frothy (frothy is good!) then turn it off, find your favourite mug, get your blanky, a relaxing – sumptuous song to listen to (like Sade) and sit… and sip… and drink your uber smooth, creamy, wholesome and real divine home made hot choc and think of how fun it was to make your own brew! Yum!
