Superfood cookies

Superfood cookies

Oh if you could see where I am!!! It’s so quiet, so peaceful, so tranquil… just the sounds of sheep bleating and water trickling down the stream. On Sunday, we managed to be out nearly all day and not see a single soul! There are mountains and waterfalls and lots of sheep! Sheep on the mountains, sheep in fields and sheep on the roads!!! Any idea where we are?!

Sheep, sheep, everywhere sheep!!!

 

So, we are on holiday, staying in a remote cottage – the nearest shop is 20 minutes drive away! There are so many little birds fluttering around the grounds of our cottage and lots of birds of prey flying overhead… it’s so lovely here!

As I’m on holiday I’m not really in the kitchen (although it is one of my favourite places), but I did manage to whip up these delicious cookies to have on hand as an easy to carry energy boost! I didn’t have scales or proper measuring spoons so these are adjustable measurements. What I did have though were some lovely superfood powders (bought with a half price voucher) which are: ‘goldenberry, turmeric and coconut’ and ‘acai, sacha inchi and coconut’ and then a plain blueberry powder.

I have used these in my cookies, but you could use any superfoods or if you really don’t have any, add something for flavour such as nut butter, cacao, choc chips, raisins or nuts! I have also added a pinch of psylium husk – this can be omitted but just gives a firmer texture to the cookies.

    • Thanks Loretta 🙂 Yes… nothing like no wifi or phone signal to bring a family together lol! This morning there was a family of Great Tits on the fence, a Robin, Chaffinches and even a Nuthatch! Then a Blue Tit tried to get in the window next to our breakfast table! 😀 Oh and the cookies… I already made batch two with almond butter, hazlenuts and a hidden chocolate centre! 😀 xxx
