Healthy Cookie Recipe

Healthy Cookie Recipe

A cookie recipe that’s scrumptious and good for you! Jeff makes amazingly delicious, healthy cookies. We were able to persuade him to share his recipe with us. And since it’s *that* time of year again, we wanted to share his recipe with you.

Jeff’s Almond Cookies

Makes 35 to 40 cookies

Preheat oven to 350

Dry Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl combine:

2 cups whole wheat flour or 3 cups if you *don’t* have pastry flour OR if you’re using a gluten-free replacement like Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour or get creative and make your own!
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour [if you have it]
2 cups almond flour [or whole almonds toasted and then ground to a fairly fine meal]
1 cup Nature’s Earthly Choice SuperFood Blend [Jeff says he gets this from Costco, and likes the texture and added nutrients, but that you can just use a cup of rolled oats ground to a rough flour, or 2/3 cup of oat flour instead]
1 tsp salt
1 rounded tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsps cinnamon
1/4 tsp cardamom [or a pinch of nutmeg if that’s what you have]

Whisk these ingredients together. Sometimes the almond flour can clump, so it’s good to break it all up and get things well mixed.

Then add to those dry ingredients:
1 or 3/4 cup fairly finely chopped dried apricots [Jeff likes organic Turkish apricots from Trader Joe’s with no sweetener or sulfur dioxide] these can be dredged with some of the flour mix so they don’t stick together and are well distributed.

Wet Ingredients

In another bowl add:

1+ cup oil [Jeff likes a blend of mostly coconut oil with a 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil]
1 cup maple syrup
1+ Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
2 heaping Tbsps of almond butter

Whisk these all together into a smooth blend and add to the bowl of dry ingredients.

Mix well. Then, using a large soup spoon or cookie scoop, drop a dozen on each cookie tray. Flatten out and shape with palms and add one raw almond in the center of each.

Bake in a 350 oven 13 to 15 minutes.

Let the cookies cool on the tray for ten minutes, then transfer them to a rack. Because of the coconut oil, these will be a little soft while warm, but if you refrigerate them they’ll become very firm.

  A zine is an independently or self-published booklet, often hand-made & affordably-priced. Often devoted to specific and unconventional topics. Our zines focus on community & health, because that’s what *we’re* about!  Because they don’t have any sort of corporate backing, zines are very rugged, opinionated, individualized, and much more charismatic than larger, more popular… Continue Reading

The Neighborhood: it makes a world of difference

The Neighborhood: it makes a world of difference

I live in the Heights. In the early morning of February 18th I woke around 3AM certain I smelled smoke.  I thought someone was smoking in my back yard.  Maybe my insomniac neighbor was up walking the alley and smoking?  I couldn’t get back to sleep. Then the helicopters began, low and loud. It was the… Continue Reading

Seminole Heights Community Acupuncture, our staff, and volunteers are members of the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture. POCA is a co-operative run and fueled by co-op members who believe that acupuncture should be available to people: learn more about that here.

We see acupuncture changing lives every day. It’s simple, safe and effective, as well as the most widely used medicine in the world! Last year POCA clinics, about 200 of them in all, gave more than 1 million treatments. Our goal is to make that number 50 million treatments by the year 2020.

We support the Community Acupuncture movement with our POCA membership and our volunteer hours.

We know that acupuncture can change the world, and would love for you to join us in The Calmest Revolution Ever Staged!
