Gluten-Free Blueberry Tahini Cookies

Eat Menstrual Phase

Made these on a whim tonight because I “just felt like baking”. Usually, I have to recipe test baked goods pretty hard. Like, I have still yet to master gluten-free pancakes hard. (Let a girl know if you have a secret recipe) These cookies tonight though, they were so fluffy and delightful.

I love recipes like this that can be used for multiple different occasions. I could take these to a party or I could literally eat them for breakfast. They’re that nourishing! Also super easy to digest for all my GP friends out there, I got you.

Let’s talk about tahini really quick too. It’s one of the highest sources of calcium you can get. I just found this out tonight as well and I am super excited! Keep your eyes peeled for where it might pop-up next! Maybe salad dressing?

Anyway, I highly recommend this one right here. Do it!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup frozen organic wild blueberries
  • 1/2 coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup organic maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 egg (or sub flax egg)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax + chia mix
  • 1/4 cup almond milk

 

Make it

Preheat over to 350F. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together (except the blueberries!) until a thick dough texture forms. Fold in frozen blueberries (may also use fresh, the organic wild are just small and easy to fold). Roll into 1 inch balls, place on parchment-lined baking sheet, and lightly press down with hand. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes, enjoy!

Pro tip: dunk/ submerge in unsweetened vanilla almond milk. A fluffy dream. OR add to breakfast bowls with yogurt.

Nourishing with Intention

  • Blueberries – so. many. antioxidants.
  • Coconut flour – gluten-free, high in fiber + protein
  • Almond flour – gluten-free, high in fiber + protein
  • Coconut oil – source of healthy fat
  • Maple syrup – low glycemic index, antioxidants, easier on GI tract than sugar
  • Tahini – liver detoxification, calcium, high mineral content
  • Cinnamon – digestion boost / warms GI tract
  • Ginger – digestion boost / warms GI tract
  • Eggs – protein
  • Flax / Chia – easily digested fiber
  • Almond milk – dairy free, high in vitamin D + calcium

Swap

  • Egg for flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax set with 3 tbsp water) if vegan
  • Almond milk for any alternative milk
  • Omit maple syrup if too sweet

As always, questions and comments are welcome!

Nourish with intention, nourish Sankalpa.

Herbal Coffee Smoothie
Are you a coffee or a tea person? This question always stumps me. I used to always be a coffee person, but after switching to a less-caffeinated lifestyle, I became the biggest tea-fiend. If you're like me, you miss the taste and smell of coffee. Something about it smells like home. Last year, I found chicory coffee, and let me tell you it has been a game changer! Here's why: It's anti-inflammatory. Because it's made from chicory root instead of coffee beans, it's less acidic. There's zero caffeine! So unlike decaf coffee containing trace amounts of caffeine, you can be sure this is at zero. Chicory may also help decrease blood sugar l ...
