    Healthy cookie recipe

    Advertisements
    Hey does anyone have any good healthy cookie recipes that they've sent in the mail before? I found a breakfast cookie one but it has mashed bananas and shredded apples I dunno how well that will hold up.

    Thanks

    I don't have any recipes that are healthy that would travel particularly well, especially with the warm weather coming up. I'm too paranoid that things will melt anyway! I've sent other healthy things before, though. I've sent fruit leather, clif bars (healthy-ish ), dried fruit, trail mix with chocolate chips, and banana chips.

    I mean, if you count Nutella as healthy, these are DB's favorite cookies that I've sent him thus far - Nutellaź Hazelnut Cookies Recipe - Allrecipes.com

    Nutella is always healthy because it's a mental health food.

    Healthy and cookies just do not belong in the same sentence

    But I have seen people make cookies using just bananas and some other ingredients before and those are pretty good. I don't know how they'd hold up in a care package though!

    I'll have to ask my dad for the recipe but he uses a recipe out of 80% date puree. It actually tastes good

    If he likes coconut and oatmeal combo, I would recommend Anzac biscuits (very famous in Australia and New Zealand). It's a sweet biscuits made using rolled oats, flour, desiccated coconut, sugar, butter, golden syrup, baking soda and boiling water. I can give you the exact measurement if you're interested. The biscuits keep well for several weeks in air tight container. Oh, you can make it vegan by using a vegan butter substitute. Hope it helps

    Can't believe I didn't think of this sooner. You can send those Belvita biscuits to him, especially the chocolate flavour! They're whole grain and in little packages, I think around 250 calories each. I love the blueberry ones but if you want to send sweeter, you can send the regular or mini chocolate ones. They're really good.

    Or you could hit up a Whole Foods/local co-op grocer, they usually have "healthier" cookies in stock that would travel well!
