These cookies are actually a slightly adjusted version of my Salted Peanut Butter Cookies. Both versions are vegan, gluten free and utterly delicious, but the main difference is that I’m using peanut butter powder here instead of actual peanut butter. As a result, these cookies are higher in protein, lower in fat and lower in calories.
I’m gonna be honest about it, I’m not the biggest fan of ginger. I think its flavor can be kind of intrusive and sort of overwhelming. However, when you only use a little bit of it, for example in a smoothie or in these delicious bliss balls, it just add a little depth and warmth to the overall flavor of the dish.
These tiny bliss balls are real powerhouses with healthy whole food ingredients like fresh ginger, turmeric, nuts and seeds. For example, it is scientifically proven that ginger has plenty anti inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics. Interestingly, a 2012 study even showed that when mice with tumors were fed 100 mg ginger extract per kg body weight, their tumors decreased in size by 56%! Even though this study was done in mice, it still provides an interesting perspective of the positive effect that ginger may have on our body.
These amazing salted peanut butter cookies are heaven on earth. I’ve always loved the combination of sweet and salty, and in this cookie the two flavors really complement each other. If you take a bit of one of these little pieces of heaven, the crumbly texture will immediately start to melt in your mouth… Yes, they are that good, believe me!
These babies are soooo good! Amazing taste, naturally high in protein and chock full of potassium, magnesium and manganese, plus they are extremely easy to make, just mix everything together in a bowl, pop them in the oven for a couple minutes and you are done. I love making these at the start of the week to take with me during long uni days or to eat as a post-workout snack.
