Kitchen Sink Raw Cookies recipe
Sometimes I just want a bite of something sweet. But I still want it to be healthy, quick and easy. People call these “kitchen sink” cookies (everything but the kitchen sink) or “dump” cookies (you just dump stuff in them), but what ever you want to call them, they are great. Requiring no dehydrator or equipment other than a bowl, spoon and measuring cups to make, they are a fast way to throw together a snack that satisfies both your sweet tooth and your nutritional needs.
I started with a ganach base made with a little more coconut oil for setting up. Then the fun happens. You just throw in your favorite ingredients. I picked pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and sunflower seeds for protein and nutrients, then threw in raw oats and coconut for more nutrients and texture. I love the addition of dried fruit and used golden raisins. You easily could substitute with goji berries or dried cranberries.
Have fun and go wild with your choices!
