minty cacao swirl superfood cookies

we almost called them "closet cookies" because you'll want to eat them hiding in a closet where you know you won't have to share! bonus: they are gluten/refined sugar free + a vegan option

3 tsps pure organic vanilla extract

1/2 cup melted grass fed butter/ghee (or coconut oil)

1 1/2 cups gf oat flour

3/4-1 cup mini vegan/refined sugar free dark choc chips (or crushed dark chocolate chunks)

for spirulina cookies:

1. preheat oven to 350 F + combine all BASE ingredients with an electric hand mixer 

2. combine dough into 2 balls - add in honey or maple syrup if its a wee bit dry! (okay we added it in anyway - sweet tooth over here!)

3. add tocos + spirulina + mint to one dough ball + combine well

4. add reishi + cosmic hot cacao to the other dough ball + combine well

tip: at this time, you can place the dough in the fridge if you want it to firm up a bit - makes for softer cookies, however we want our cookies and we want them now, so we skipped that step)

5 make 1 inch dough balls - combining 1/2 inch + 1/2 inch balls for a combo cookie if you're feeling extra adventuresome + place on parchment lined cookie sheet 

6. bake cookies at 350 F for 9-10 minutes while staring impatiently through the glass

7. sprinkle cookies with more superfoods when they come out + allow to cool so you don't burn your mouth - safety first!

store in a lidded glass container + eat your cookies while pretending to be cookie monster saying "me so hungry, me love cookies num num num"
