My Whole-someness Cookies
Hi there! As you guys know, I love food. I’m also all about balance! I try to keep a well-stocked pantry and fridges around so I’m prepared for new flavoursome recipes at any given moment. I also stick to a wholesome diet for a holistic approach to nutrition which means I like to be a little more thoughtful than just chips and soda. Today, I wanted to share another of my favourite recipes: My Whole-someness Cookies. These are super quick to make and also vegan, gluten free, refined sugar and oil free, and most importantly they taste amazing. Seriously, these cookies are a crowd pleaser among even the pickiest of my children..not naming anyone though! As always, let me know if you like them.
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup mix seeds
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 tbsp desiccated coconut
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder 1/2 tsp ginger powder 1/2 tsp baking powder A pinch of salt 1 ripe banana
1/4 cup macadamia butter
1 tbsp date or maple syrup
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
1-2 tbsp coconut milk
1/4 cup dark chocolate broken in chunks
1. Preheat the oven to 160oC and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
2. Place all the dry ingredients (except the chocolate) in a food processor, and pulse making sure to leave some texture intact.
3. Mash banana and mix with all wet ingredients.
4. Combine wet and dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, add the chocolate chunks, stir well. Using your hands and a spoon, scoop around 2 tbsp of the mix into your hands and make a bowl shape. Place the balls onto the baking tray.
5. With a fork, press the mixture down to shape into a cookie.
6. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Let it cool completely, or at least try. These will keep for approximately 3 seconds in your hands!

Hi there! New to your website… all the recipes look amazing! Any suggestions on where I can buy AFFORDABLE almond flour please? Can I use cake flour in the interim?
Hi Candice. Thank you for the positive feedback <3 <3 You should be able to find almond flour in most health sections of supermarkets like Checkers and Pick n Pay but it is always quite pricey. Alternatively you can use rice or quinoa flour (you can just grind some rice or quinoa if you don't have any) or even cake flour, baring in mind that the latter is a less healthy alternative. I would love to know if you like them 🙂
