3 Ingredient Coconut Chia Energy Cookies are tasteful post work out recovery replenishment. Made with simple ingredients in about 35 minutes in minimum mess. They serve well as a healthy snack for kids with no worries of them being sugar high.
The 3 ingredients that I used in these cookies are chia seeds, ripe banana and coconut flour. For this, I first soaked chia seeds in some water for a few minutes. In a larger mixing bowl mashed bananas with a potato masher. Finally, folded in coconut flour along with soaked chia seeds. Thereafter, placed about 12 cookies on a greased cookie sheet. Lastly, baked them in a pre-heated oven for 30 minutes. Vegan and paleo energy cookies were ready without much hassle.
Chia seeds – Apart of being a great egg substitute this super food is high in protein and omega 3 fatty acids. In addition to being gluten free chia seeds are high in fiber. Chia seeds are extremely versatile and fits in well in almost any recipe be it sweet or savory.
Banana – Again a great egg substitute. Not only its high in potassium but a fiber rich fruit as well. Banana is delicious and a versatile fruit to be used in any dessert.
Coconut flour – it is high in fiber, protein as well as healthy fats. Most importantly coconut flour is gluten free. It’s great for grain free baking.
