Cookies, we all love them. The crunch of a tasty cookie delights the senses and tantalizes the taste buds. In fact, a plate of freshly baked cookies with a glass of warm milk makes the perfect snack for any season or any time of the day. However, finding the time to make cookies from scratch isn’t possible for most people living a busy lifestyle.
In today’s fast-paced society, time is our most valuable resource, so a little preparation goes a long way in any activity you choose to do. Baking is no different, and there’s no reason why you can bake a batch of cookies while you jump in the shower, it only takes less than 15-minutes. It’s the preparation that’s the hard part. We put together this recipe for ready-to-go cookie mix to save you time, give it a try!
Low-Carb Cookies Without the Hassle
Choosing a low-carb lifestyle reduces systemic inflammation and provides significant improvements to your health. Unfortunately, it means having to forgo the delicious things in life, like cookies. Fortunately, there are a few culinary geniuses that figured out how to make cookies, without the flour and sugar. Try to contain your excitement.
Our cookie mix contains organic, instant oats for the base. Instant oats cook quickly and provide you with slow-burning energy. Start your recipe by blending a cup of instant oats into dust using a food processor or blender. (1)
When done, we add a ¼-cup of protein to the oats for a muscle-building boost of nutrition. Throw in some dark chocolate chips for added flavor. Cacao contains antioxidants that remove free radicals from the blood and prevent cell oxidation. (2)
For the final touch, add a ½-teaspoon of baking powder, a pinch of salt, and stevia to taste. With all the ingredients mixed to perfection, pour your cookie mix in a large glass jar and store it in a cool, dry place.
Pour it into a mixing bowl and add a raw egg and six tablespoons of melted butter when you’re ready to use the mix. Blend the ingredients evenly, removing any lumps. Your final consistency should be firm, not sloppy.
Scoop out the dough onto wax paper on top of a baking tray and place them in the oven for 10 to 12-minutes until golden brown. As the smell of cookies baking spreads through your home, don’t be surprised if your kids show up out of nowhere begging for a sample.
Remember to let them cool for 20 to 30-minutes before serving or packing them in Tupperware. You can store the leftover cookies (if there are any) in the fridge for up to 5-days.
