I was recently given a lovely assortment of Mum’s Original products to test out from the friendly and passionate team at Borden Communications. I truly felt like I hit the jackpot when I picked up my package! It contained: hemp hearts, chia, goji berries, oats, cacao powder, cacao nibs, coconut flour, coconut sugar, banana powder, rock salt, and quinoa. Yup – pretty much all of my favorite super foods.
I was in the mood to test out a few of the products, and found a recipe online for Teff Almond Butter cookies. I decided to swap out a few ingredients with some of the Mum’s Original products I had on hand, and the following recipe was born:
Recipe – Almond butter tahini oat cookies
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 1/2 tsp. Mum’s Original chia meal
1 cup Mum’s Original oat flour
1/2 cup Mum’s Original coconut flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinammon
1/8 tsp. Mum’s Original Himalayan rock salt
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 cup almond butter
1/3 cup tahini
Preheat oven to 350 degrees celcius.
Mix apple sauce and chia in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
Combine flours, salt, and baking powder in another medium sized bowl, and set aside.
Warm the almond butter and tahini for about 25 seconds in the microwave. Add to apple sauce mixture. Stir in honey, and vanilla.
Make a well in the dry ingredients. Add in the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
Scoop out a small amount of dough with a small spoon and roll into a ball using your hands. Place on a prepared cookie sheet. Flatten the ball with the tines of a fork. Bake for about 10-13 minutes, until set.
The recipe will make approximately 24 cookies.
I decided to stir in some Mum’s Original coconut cacao nibs to half of the dough. It added a bit of a crunchy texture and some delicious chocolatey flavour!
These cookies will satisfy your sweet tooth, and will also fill you up, since they are full of protein, fibre and healthy fats. I found that the cookies had a fudge like texture, and a delicate flavour, similar to halvah.
I highly recommend that you hop to the store, pick up some Mum’s Original products and try this recipe out. You won’t be disappointed!
