Delicious Raw Vegan Cookies




These raw vegan cookies are featured in my cookbook Heatlhy Baking as well as The Healthy Chef Recipe App. They are loaded with the protein, fibre and minerals that your body craves and thrives on. These cookies only take a couple of minutes to make and can be enjoyed as a quick healthy on the go meal or snack at any time of day. For a nut free cookie just substitute the nut butter for roasted sunflower seed butter or tahini – perfect for school lunchboxes.




Nut and seed butters, such as almond butter, are packed with protein that keeps your body sustained for hours, making these cookies the ultimate breakfast snack to start your busy day ahead. Rolled oats have a lovely crumbly texture and they are a great source of fibre to help curb your appetite as well as support healthy digestion. Pumpkin seeds add an extra boost of minerals and protein and you can also use sunflower seeds in place of the pumpkin seeds. Cinamon is one of my favourite spices as it helps to stabilise blood sugars and support digestion. Cinamon is naturally sweet to taste and compliments this recipe perfectly!
