Raspberry Glazed Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are healthy, moderately sweet in taste and protein rich. These vegan cookies are easy to bake and are satisfying for the taste buds. They not only serve as a dessert but these are great as a breakfast and or as a pre-workout snack.
I love baking cookies because I find it easy to whip up the ingredients and bake them in the oven without worrying too much about the rising and the consistency. Especially if it’s anything chocolate I feel it is even easier to bring out a nice taste. Whenever I bake any form of chocolate cookies I am pretty confident that it’s going to be consumed with the snap of fingers. Chocolate is a universal flavor which I think all of us love.
However, to bring a twist to regular chocolate cookies I decided to glaze it with fresh raspberries. Even though I was slightly skeptical about the combination at the beginning but I was super impressed with the outcome. Raspberry glaze in this recipe has a mild tang with a little touch of sweetness that goes well over these cookies.
Finally, I wanted to add protein to these cookies to make it nutritious and worthy. I folded in lots of hemp seeds to make these cookies high in protein and fiber. Therefore, with all the nutritious and fresh ingredients Raspberry Glazed Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies came out excellently.
