BREAKFAST BRAIN COOKIES


Vegan and gluten-free, these cookies by Lisa Müller are wonderful for those with busy schedules (all of us)... Make these ahead of time to enjoy in the mornings, filled with nuts, seeds, dates and our Mucuna Pruriens for its mood-boosting properties!

I created this recipe a few months ago when my life got a bit more busy again (thank God) after / during lockdown number 3 here in France.

I used to be a “good” breakfast eater, meaning always hungry and full of an appetite after my training in the morning. But with more meetings, food deliveries and coaching I ended up not really eating a full breakfast anymore but instead snacking on fruits and nuts. This is great for a quick snack especially after one hour of sports but soon I would get so hungry and cranky if I didn’t properly EAT. So I decided to put all the breakfast-y things that I love into a healthy cookie that I can bring with me and eat in-between my calls and deliveries.

I chose Mucuna Pruriens because the mornings are always my main “brain time” where I have to make decisions and be organized with my tasks and daily planning. So this is a wonderful addition that benefits me on every level! Now they are not an “emergency” snack anymore but a household staple that we all (my boyfriend and his 2 kids included) rely on especially before a surf, training, home schooling or a long car ride to our production site. MUST TRY!

Breakfast Brain Cookies

Vegan / gluten-free
Makes ~7-8 cookies
Around 60g per cookie
They also freeze well if you decide to make a bigger batch!

 Ingredients

100g coconut oil (extra virgin or mild)

2 tbsp. soy milk

70 g coconut OR date sugar

Chia egg (= 1 tbsp. ground chia + 3 tbsp. water)

100g GF flour (I used 30 g buckwheat flour and 70g GF flour mix)

60g almond flour (= ground blanched almonds)

30g (toasted) buckwheat flakes (or oats)

40g pecans (or walnuts)

20g coconut flakes OR cacao nibs

20g pumpkin seeds

30g chopped dates OR figs

1 tsp. cinnamon or pumpkin spice

1 tbsp. Psyllum husk (optional)

½ tbsp. Mucuna Pruriens

Pinch of salt

 

Method

In a big bowl or stand mixer combine the soft (!) coconut oil, soy milk and sugar and mix until creamy (around 3 minutes).

Add the chia egg and mix again until well combined.

Add the rest of the ingredients and gently mix until no more dry bits remain.

I like to use an ice cream scoop to form medium sizes cookies and place them on a tray lined with parchment paper.

Freeze the cookies for at least 3 hours or overnight (Don't skip this step!)

Pre-heat the oven the 375 Fahrenheit (or 180°C) and bake for 12 minutes.

After 10 minutes I like to press them down a bit with a spatula and continue to bake them another 2-3 minutes.

Let cook completely and store in the fridge (or freeze if you have prepared a bigger batch).

They keep moist and fresh for 4-5 days in a airtight container!
