These cookies are extra fun because they wait for you nice and cold, in your freezer. Yet, they are ready to bite into as soon as you want one. Seriously, they are better than an ice cream cookie sandwich. Bonus, they won’t leave you feeling sluggish.
These cookies are packed with foods our brains need to build healthy fats. Our brain is 60% fat. Almonds, hemp seeds, chia seeds and nut butters are high in polyunsaturated fats which contain the essential fatty acids Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s. These fats are needed for brain health and also help in other areas, such as mood control (and ADHD).
Another favorite about this recipe: its kid friendly! It’s so simple to make, and fun, that your kids can take the lead in the kitchen with this one (Let’s delegate!). Kids will gather all the ingredients, mix with their hands, form into flat circles and freeze. That’s it. No worries about raw eggs or dangerous cooking tools.
And don’t forget….remind them to wash the dishes when they are all done!
My 9 year old daughter makes these cookies for us and she loves the independence she has in the kitchen with this recipe.
We hope that your family will enjoy making these, decorating them and eating them as much as we do. And if you get to try them out, please take pictures. I would love to see you and your kiddos making these for your afternoon snacks. I absolutely love to see all you families in the kitchen together!
Happy Cooking! Happy Eating!
