Watch Your Family Go Nuts for These Cookies
When you’re out shopping for the ingredients, remember to buy organic products. There’s a tremendous difference in the quality of organic foods compared to commercially produced products. The results show in the taste and nutrition of the cookies, so don’t be afraid to spend a little bit more on quality.
Organic, natural peanut butter contains nothing but peanuts – no sugar, no stabilizer, and no preservatives. Peanuts are one of the worlds most modified nut crops. Commercial farmers spray their trees with pesticides and herbicides to control insect populations and protect the trees. Unfortunately, these toxins end up in trace amounts in the nuts, and as a result, in the peanut butter. Organic farmers use nothing but healthy biomass for fertilizer and natural pest defenses. (1)
It’s a similar story when shopping for eggs. Commercial hen farmers keep their livestock in terrible living conditions, overcrowded pens packed with chickens that can barely move. The birds feed on a diet of modified grain which includes growth hormones and antibiotics. These chemicals prevent a disease from spreading through the farm. Unfortunately, they end up in the eggs as well.
By now, every parent concerned with the health of their kids should understand the importance of avoiding sugar in their diet. Refined carbs are no good for your kids. This recipe uses stevia to replace sugar. Stevia is a natural plant-based sweetener that has no adverse health risks, unlike aspartame found in other commercial brand sweetener products. (2)
Shopping is the hard part, making the recipe is easy. Throw all your ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Grease a baking tray with grass-fed butter and then scoop the dough out int0o cookie-sized portions. Bake in a preheated oven at 375F for 10 to 15-minutes until the cookies start to brown.
As you pull the cookies from the oven, let them cool for a few minutes before serving. Your kids will be hassling you at this stage, but don’t give in to their demands, or they may burn their tongues on the hot cookies.
