With my little ones second birthday fast approaching and the return of her fixation with cookies, I made it my mission to search for the most nutritious and delicious cookie recipe around. Why, you may be asking have I taken up such a challenge? Quite simply because who wants to say no to a two year old on their birthday? So, with no further adue, here is the most amazing, healthy cookie recipe I’ve ever tried. And I’m not talking delicious considering how healthy the recipe is. I’m talking the texture and taste of a Mrs Fields type cookie. Pregnancy cravings and two year olds aside, when these cookies started baking, let’s just say the husband came a running. So go on, give them a try, I promise they won’t disappoint xx

Almond Butter Cookies
Adapted from it’s All Good by Gwyneth Paltrow
(Makes about 24 cookies)

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups gluten free flour
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup natural almond butter
1 cup good quality maple syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Directions
Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line two baking trays with baking paper.

In a medium size bowl whisk together flour, fine sea salt and baking powder.
In a small saucepan over low heat warm the almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla for approx 1 minute and whisk together. Transfer the wet ingredients to the mixing bowl and  mix together to combine thoroughly.

Using two spoons form the cookies into balls (around a generous tablespoon in size each) and space them two inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Wet your finger tips, press down on the cookies and smooth the edges so each is the shape of a small disc. Sprinkle each with a little sea salt.

Bake until the air is fragrant and the cookies are firm, watch to ensure they do not burn, approx 12 – 15 minutes.

Note: I found it helpful to have a bowl of water handy so you can wet the two spoons each time you form the cookies, it helps to handle the gooey mixture.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Cleansing Salad

Inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow’s go to salad during her recent GOOP cleanse, I’ve added a new edition to my repertoire of to die for healthy salads. This is the most delicious and wonderfully healthy salad. It works as an excellent base to add whichever protein you like, from chicken or turkey to salmon or tofu. I’ve made a couple of adjustments to the original recipe, added a couple of extra greens, adjusted the dressing and swapped the grilled zucchini for grated raw zucchini. . .

Above all, if it’s working for a body like Gwyneth’s, whose to argue? xx
