A note from Lucette
I love this recipe, as someone who has a bit of a sweet tooth, these no bake cookies are the perfect addition to my busy schedule. Incredibly quick and easy to make and easy to grab and go for a little breakfast snack or after dinner.
I started making these for picnics and every time I take these with me everyone is always asking for more. A few cookie monsters have been created!
A note from Sun Potion on the benefits of Ghee!
Ghee, the beloved clarified butter that is rooted in ancient Indian customs and used alongside adaptogens is truly an amazing fat source that can support our bodies in a myriad of ways. Ghee contains high levels of Omega-3’s and contains properties that may be good for our gastrointestinal tract. This clarified butter also has a tone of flavor which is why it is so wonderful in sweet and savory recipes, especially as it has a much higher smoking point and is suitable for many people who are lactose or struggle with consuming traditional foods with butter.
While we all know that ghee tastes amazing, it is also one of the healthiest sources of saturated fat which is essential for supporting our cognitive health. In an article from Conscious Lifestyle Magazine, they explain how “one of the richest sources of saturated fat in nature is human breast milk, clearly showing its role in the development of a healthy brain.” Another benefit of consuming small amounts of ghee over time is its ability to support or digestive tract and a clean colon as Ghee soothes and reduces inflammation in our digestive tract. Ghee can also be enjoyed at night, in a tea, potion or in these no-bake cookies as the healthy fats may encourage a healthy and peaceful night’s sleep.
