Peanut Butter PMS Cookies

Need something healthy to satisfy your cravings during PMS? Look no further, these cookies are a good source of protein, iron and magnesium to not only satisfy your cravings but support healthy hormone balance as well.



Peanut Butter PMS Cookies

1 cup almond meal
1/2 cup peanut butter (natural, unsweetened)
a pinch of sea salt, if the peanut butter is unsalted
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (I like the Enjoy Life brand because they are dairy and soy free)
2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds and 2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar

In a large bowl mix the almond meal, peanut butter, sea salt and maple syrup. Stir well to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips. At this point. The dose should be a somewhat sticky cohesive ball.

In a shallow bowl combine the flaxseeds in coconut palm sugar.

Role about a tablespoon of dough in your hands to form a golf ball-size ball. Role the cookie dough in the flaxseed mixture and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. This recipe should make 14-16 cookies.

Before baking, press each cookie with a fork to flatten it.

Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.

The cookies will be soft when you take them out of the oven, let them cool completely before enjoying.
