These cookies pack a serious punch! They’re every birds dream ha ha ha ha ok maybe just this bird!! but seriously they are delicious! I created these as I was becoming slightly obsessed with a similar cookie form a well-known healthy hangout! But to be honest I couldn’t justify buying them all the time and I wanted to make a healthier version of my own without all the hidden nasties! And so the seed soldier was born! I called them seed soldiers because this is a fun and tasty was of getting some wholefood seed goodness into you or your little ones diet. That’s right! Bring on some tasty fibre people!!

 

 So lets talk health people! Well did you know that seeds are super duper good for your body?! That’s right pumpkin, sunflower, flax and chia seeds are high in fibre, a source of protein, good for immune support, beauty maintenance, bone maintenance, heart function, cell protection and vision support. Now is that a seed soldier or what!! GET INNNNNNN!!!!

INGREDIENTS

½ Cup Butter Or Coconut Oil For The Vegan Version (Whatever You’re Into!)

2/3 Cup Maple Syrup

1 Tsp. Vanilla

1 Cup Oats

½ Cup Buckwheat Flower

½ Cup Ground Almonds

¼ Cup Pumpkin Seeds

¼ Cup Sunflower Seeds

½ Cup Raisins

2 Tbsps. Chia Seeds

1½ Tbsps. Flax Seed

1 Tsp. Baking Powder

¼ Tsp. Salt

 

 

First rule of fight club………… Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius or 320 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

This is so easy that even a five year old could do it….. Actually if you have a five year old you should totally get them to make this! Happy days!

 

Ok so either you or your newly appointed healthy cookie helper need to pop the butter or coconut oil into a bowl and mix it with the vanilla and salt.

 

  Next add 4 tbsps. Of water to the chia seeds and leave them to soak. Once soaked (approx. 1 minute) add them to the butter, they should be all gooey like frogspawn! Gross but cool!!

 

 Once you’ve added the chia “egg” add in the flour, oats, almonds and baking powder. Give it a good mix until you have a paste. Then add the maple syrup.

 

Lastly add all of the seeds and raisins. You should have beautifully colourful cookie dough now that looks something like this:

 

 I topped mine with a walnut but feel free to decorate however you like! Just mould them into large mounds and pop onto a tray lined with greaseproof paper.


Whack them into the oven for 20-25 minutes until olden and gorgeous! Just be careful as they go from beige to burned very quickly!

Enjoy my lovlies!! xxx
