Check out these healthy delicious cookies! This recipe has no refined sugar and is packed with wonderful protein-filled seeds. These are hearty and filling.
I’ve been on a sugar-free journey. It’s been over 3 months since I’ve had refined sugar and I’m delighted with my success so far.

A while ago, my parents were babysitting my girls. Apparently in the middle of dinner, my 7-year-old piped up and said, “My mom’s not eating refined sugar anymore. You know what that means… no more cookies.”

Of course, I had no intention of eliminating the odd cookie from her diet but I decided to look for a recipe which all of us could enjoy. I’ve been experimenting with cookie recipes but it’s a challenge to eliminate sugar from cookies. Almost every recipe calls for white sugar, brown sugar, or both!

A few years ago I shared my Breakfast Cookie recipe. I decided to take another look at it and eliminate the brown sugar. The results were fabulous.

Not only was my daughter delighted that I made cookies but she kept saying “I can’t believe these have no sugar in them.”

What a funny girl.

This is a modified recipe from Planet Organic (their Cosmic Cookies recipe). Enjoy!
