Whenever I make these, I wonder why I've waited so long! These are my Energy Cookies from Vive le Vegan! (p.38). They are a cross between a mini-muffin and a cookie, not as sweet as a dessert cookie, but smaller and more cookie-like than a muffin!
I love these. Well, we all love these. You can feel good about eating them too, because these energy dynamos are packed with sunflower seeds, hemp seed nuts, pumpkin seeds, flax meal, raisins, NO refined flours, and NO refined sugars. They also have carob chips (or chocolate chips), but if you want to omit these you absolutely can, and you can sub in some more dried fruit or nuts if you want.
Now, I know you may be thinking "how good can they be with all these earthy ingredients?" Well, they have lots of flavor from cinnamon, pure maple syrup, and also a touch of blackstrap molasses. Full of flavor, texture, and packed with nutritious ingredients for an energizing snack any time of the day!
