These cookies are delicious! They'll satisfy any cookie craving.
These cookies have a calming effect when eaten also. Pumpkin seeds are higher in tryptophan than a Thanksgiving Turkey. I've also added pistachios which are high in Vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 helps the body absorb tryptophan. They also lend a great taste to the cookie. I love pistachios.
These cookies are like a low dosage Ativan.
I took them to the store last weekend and everyone not only loved them, they requested more, and the recipe.
Having trouble sleeping? Need a Valium but prefer "all natural remedies"?
These cookies are for you.
1 cup gluten-free oat bran (or ground oats)
1 cup almond meal (or ground almonds)
1 cup of shelled pistachio's ground in food processor
1 cup of pumpkin seeds ground in food processor
1/2 cup sweet rice flour
1/2 cup sweet white sorghum flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup of whole golden roasted flax seeds (optional)
1 ripe avocado
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup raw sugar
3 eggs (or egg replacement)
Measure and process the nuts, seeds, and oats in the food processor.
Whisk the flours, salt, oat bran, and baking powder together in a separate bowl and set aside.
Blend the honey, the avocado, the olive oil, and the raw sugar together in the food processor.
In your stand mixer, mix together the eggs, the avocado/sugar mixture, the ground nuts, seeds, flours etc.
Spoon the cookie dough onto a parchment paper covered cookie tin, flatten with a fork or spoon, (I decorated a few with seeds) and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Cookies are done when they start to brown. Cool on the counter and enjoy. These are soft and cake like.
This made 2 dozen cookies of slightly varying sizes.
