Kim’s Vegan Granola Cookies


About two weeks ago, I shared the release of a new dairy-free cookbook, Super Seeds: The Complete Guide to Cooking with Power-Packed Chia, Flax, Hemp, Quinoa and Amaranth, by my friend Kim Lutz. Along with it, she shared a sample recipe from the book for Creamy Golden Corn Soup. Now that you’ve gotten a taste of the savory side of Super Seeds, I thought a sample sweet was in order. Kim agreed, and has offered these tempting, yet healthy, vegan granola cookies.

These vegan granola cookies pack all the goodness of super seed–loaded granola into a crunchy cookie that tastes great, travels well, and will quickly become your go-to lunch box and picnic cookie. Enjoy them with a tall glass of iced tea on a hot day or a warm cup of cocoa whenever you feel a chill setting in.

In addition to the Creamy Golden Corn Soup and Vegan Granola Cookies below, Super Seeds has over 70 additional recipes that incorporate chia, quinoa, flax, hemp, and/or amaranth with other wholesome ingredients. Just a few more samples include: Blueberry Coffee Cake, Amaranth Stuffed Acorn Squash, Lemon Basil Quinoa Salad, Hemp Seed Hummus, Pesto Veggie Burgers, Quinoa Lentil Soup, and Massaged Kale Salad.
