Superfood Baobab Goji Oat Cookies

Bao cookies 14

Love cookies, but want to eat more healthily? Try these superfood oat cookies which contain not just one, but THREE superfoods: baobab superfruit powdergoji berries & dark chocolate. I use Organic Black’s 85% cocoa solids dark chocolate, which not only tastes delicious, is a great healthy choice & is suitable for vegans. For slow-release carbs, I’ve included oats* in this recipe.

*Note: These cookies can easily be adapted for coeliacs by using gluten-free oats & flour.

You can also include protein powder in this recipe if you wish. I use Pulsin’s vegan varieties, peasoya.

But what do they taste like? You have lemony citrus from the baobab, bitterness from the dark chocolate & sweetness from chopped dates. (I was tempted to call these bitter chocolate lemon biscuits!). You have texture from the oats & a satisfying chewiness from the dried goji berries.

As with all my recipes, I do not use refined sugar; the sweetness is solely provided by dried dates in this recipe.

As I have babbled on about the benefits of these superfoods eleswhere in this blog, I will move on the recipe!
