Charcoal chocolate chip + spelt breakfast cookie
vegan, soy/egg/dairy/refined sugar free, anti-inflammatory
maybe yesterday’s incredibly delicious chocolate croissant took an interesting toll on this humorless stomach of mine. but when it’s national chocolate day i can still rally like it’s the 90s. and by rally i mean put on some stretch pants and low volume npr and bake something...gentle.
this breakfast cookie is one i’ve made before, but it’s the topping - with a bit of gut healing and detoxifying ingredients (activated charcoal, collagen peptides) - that’s fresh and dare i say exciting. frosting inspired by the “moon goo” at the extraordinary @frankieandjos
breakfast cookie: preheat oven to 350 degrees. combine 1/2 cup tahini, 1/3 cup coconut nectar, 1 tblsp vanilla, 1/2 cup spelt flour, 3/4 cup spelt flakes, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/3 cup chocolate chips (i used @santabarbarachocolate
100% unsweetened and @enjoylifefoods
dark chocolate chips). roll into balls and press down (they don’t spread). bake for 15 minutes. or don’t. the dough is also incredible and would be a great ice cream topping or just a straight outta the fridge snack.
charcoal and collagen chocolate frosting (not vegan because of the collagen): 2 heaping tablespoons unsweetened @navitasorganics
cacao powder, 2 tablespoons @greatlakesgelatin
collagen peptides, 1/2 capsule of activated charcoal (i used @natureswaybrands
), sweetener to taste (optional), sprinkle of cinnamon (optional).
more devastation in the news today. there’s so much work to be done and we are all being forced to swallow so much pain. it isn’t wrong to take care of yourself, it’s a necessity. especially if you want to have the strength to keep going and help others. take care of your gut.
