One Super Cookie

I served these at my recent Superfoods workshop at Whole Foods Market and as always, they were a hit! But don't take my word for it, take theirs':

"Delicious!"

"So much flavor!"

"These are good for you?!"

"Can I eat cookies for breakfast?"

"Yum."

My work as a health coach is so rewarding because EVERYDAY I get to connect people with Hip, Simple, Fabulous™ recipes and take the guess-work out of making nourishing, gluten-free foods, delicious and exciting.

I believe that food is a reflection of our lives - and who wants to live a dull, bland, cardboard existence?!

So get ready for One Super Cookie! Packed with nutrient-rich superfoods this "cookie" is the perfect pre-workout snack, energizing pairing to your warm beverage or breakfast treat. Goji berries, Quinoa Flakes, Almond Meal, Chia Seeds, Cacao Nibs and yes, just a hint of Fall with Pumpkin Seeds and Pumpkin puree. These tasty, satisfying and nourishing little bites fuel me for my days AND I enjoy every little nibble.

Enough, already, let's get you baking so you can taste these - and let me know what you think!

* A quick little note for those avoiding oats - simply replace these with additional quinoa flakes and you're good to go! You'll never miss the oats:-)

Be well,
