IMMUNITY COOKIES



Contributor: Brianna Beard

"You will feel so energized and full of vitality after consuming one of these cookies! Astragalus (Huang Qi) has been a foundational herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine for hundreds of years. It is included in formulas to support Qi - the conceptual “shield” which serves to protect the body."

- Brianna Beard

Vegan, gluten-free cookies that bring the uplifting, protective energetics of Astragalus. Thank you, Brianna, for this immunity-boosting recipe!

Our immune system is essential for our survival. Without an immune system, our bodies would be open to attack from bacteria, viruses, parasites, and more. It is our immune system that keeps us healthy as we drift through a sea of pathogens. There are many ways to support and strengthen your immune system. Food, and in particular, medicinal herbs, are very effective at maintaining a robust immune system.

These delicious almond butter cookies are superpowered with Astragalus, Gingko and Ginseng. While these lovely herbs are optional for the recipe, I highly recommend trying one or all three! You will feel so energized and full of vitality after consuming one of these cookies! Astragalus (Huang Qi) has been a foundational herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine for hundreds of years. It is included in formulas to support Qi (chi), or the conceptual “shield” which serves to protect the body. It is well known as a tonic to strengthen the immune system.

I love vegan, gluten free desserts because they are way easier for me to make than traditional baked goods! You can’t really go wrong. Of course everything tastes earthier and not as rich, but what you do taste is the dense nutrition and nourishment.

 Ingredients

1 cup gluten-free rolled oats

1 cup almond butter

1/3 cup almond milk

1/3 cup ground flax seed

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup lightly toasted almonds (finely chopped)

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

pinch sea salt

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds/pistachio (chopped)

1/2 cup vegan chocolate (melted) 

option to add

1 tbsp. ginseng powder

1 tbsp. gingko powder

1 tbsp. Sun Potion Astragalus


 Method

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl

Form into balls and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper

Press down on each to flatten out the cookie

Bake for 10 minutes

Cool for 1 hour

Place the melted chocolate in a bowl

Once cooled, dip half of the cookie in the chocolate and place on parchment paper

Sprinkle the pistachio and pumpkin seed crumble over chocolate and refrigerate the cookies until chocolate is firm


A note from Sun Potion on Astragalus
Astragalus is a revered herb, used for over 2000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), to support health regeneration in a myriad of forms. It has been used to help fight fatigue and promote vitality, and to boost ones immune system and create more antibodies to help fight disease. It is an adaptogen, that may help ones body to deal with stress and anxiety, and provide an a boost of energy and revitalization.
In TCM, Astragalus is thought to support lung energy, or Lung Qi, as well as having beneficial effects on your blood circulation and heart health. Longevity, youthfulness, and even DNA repair have been thought  and studied to be potential benefits, since Astragalus has been shown to stimulate the body's production of special compounds which some studies have shown can help stimulate the production of an enzyme, Telomerase, which is our bodies natural warrior against DNA damage and aging. You can head here for more information, beautifully explained by Conscious Lifestyle Magazine, on more of the benefits of this extraordinary root.

My fondest memory of childhood was my first trip to Hawaii. Everything was so vibrant and fresh. The first time I tasted a mango I became obsessed with food in that form, simple and unprocessed. I’ve gone through every food phase, from vegetarian to vegan to pescatarian to completely raw. Through those experiences I have discovered I need flexibility in order to maintain balance. So my approach now is MOSTLY plant based with medicinal herbs and adaptogens infused into as many meals as possible. The food I make is an exploration of the unlimited potential of nature, preparing foods with seeds, nuts, roots, stems, pollens, algae, seaweeds, fungi, sprouts, leaves and flowers!
