Whole Wheat Flour folded in fresh pureed blackberries and sweetened with maple syrup. YUM!
Believe it or not I thought I would get away with just making regular cookies and I was munching on this Whole Wheat Blackberry Easter Cookies when suddenly my little one screamed out of excitement…..
I was startled and turned around. I saw her jumping and laughing and at that moment I decided to decorate these cookies for Easter and more so for her. I was equally excited and wanted to make another batch of cookies that would be perfect for the occasion.
I had bought hopping bunny shaped cookie cutter while walking through the store. At that time I had no intentions of making these Easter Bunny Cookies but this cookie cutter was so adorable and cute that I could not resist and had to get one for myself. Now I think it was the right decision on my part because my daughter was super happy and we got into the spirit of Easter. 🙂
I quickly combined all the ingredients and shaped them into bunny cookies and baked them. I prefer crispy cookies so I baked the cookies immediately but for my daughter I refrigerated the cookie dough for 10 minutes before baking them into softer cookies. When I took the tray out of the oven the cookies looked beautiful.
I got some colorful candy melts and sprinkles to decorate these Whole Wheat Blackberry Easter Cookies (or “bunny cookies” as Yashvi calls them). She also participated in decorating the cookies with me and it was a super fun afternoon baking and decorating these Easter cookies. 🙂
When done these Whole Wheat Blackberry Easter Cookies looked beautiful and super cute and trust me at that moment both of us didn’t have the heart to bite into them. These seemed to be in some wonderland hopping on the grass chasing after the blackberries.
Don’t you think so?
We preserved them in a container for few days and then finally tasted these cookies. Whole Wheat Blackberry Easter Cookies were delicious and flavorful along with health and I am about to make another batch of these “bunny cookies” next week. 🙂
Happy Healthy Easter!!!
