Superfood Quick Cookie

In a huge rush?  No food in the house?  Looking for a sweet and filling treat and maybe substitution for that chocolate-y protein bar?

Whip up a batch of these, eat a few and chill the rest for later.  This is a less than 5 min, kitchen-cleanout type cookie that is easy, satisfying and sneakily healthy.

Superfood Quick Cookies

1 medium banana, mashed
2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (i used an almond-coconut-chia combo, any will do).
splash vanilla
2 tablespoons sunflower seed butter
1/4 to 1/2 ripe avocado

Food Process the above ingredients, pureeing until smooth, then add:

1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1-1/2 tablespoons raw cacao nibs
2 teaspoons maca powder
optional 1/2 teaspoon spirulina
1 to 2 tablespoons plant protein powder
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 to 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Food process the above until mixture forms a ball, adding a splash or two more nondairy milk or water if necessary.
This isn't a very sweet cookie; if you want it as more of a dessert rather than meal cookie, add some agave or rice chocolate chips, or maybe just more banana or throw in some applesauce.  Cranberries or other dried fruit would likely be delish as well.

Easy off to do chores, walk the pups, run, then teach some classes at BodyROK!  Enjoy!
