cosmic power cookies

Okay, I admit it. I love cookies. So, what do I do? Try to make healthier homemade treats like these to snack on when I have the urge. Cosmic cookies are originally a recipe from Planet Organic health food market in Canada. I have slightly modified the recipe to suit my needs as you can also do.

I like these cookies because they are hearty and dense and chocked full of seeds which are a fantastic source of all kinds of vitamins & minerals like zinc and magnesium. The cookies are vegan and wheat-free and are almost more like a power bar than a cookie. I am sure you could also make a gluten-free version; just substitute glute-free oats and use a gluten-free flour such as chickpea, rice or even soy flour in place of the spelt flour.

I think that next time I make these I will substitute the raisins with chopped unsulfured figs, dates, or apricots. There so many more dried fruits out there other than the raisin. I know that my daughter would love them with white chocolate chips. You get the point. The cookies are very versatile. Enjoy!
