Frozen Strawberry Cookies

Extremely fluffy, moist and sweet cookies. Freezing the strawberries beforehand prevents the cookies from being too moist. I had a few leftover vegan chocolate chip cookies in my pantry that I wanted to utilize but honestly, the cookies are naturally sweet enough and you do not need to add chocolate chips at all.

If you’re not already a fan of STRAWBERRIES, you should be. Not only are they juicy, summery and delicious, they’re a great superfood, too. Nutrient-rich and packed with antioxidants, strawberries offer a wide range of health benefits, some of which may surprise you.

I had a few leftover vegan chocolate chips left in my pantry that I stirred into the batter, but the cookies turned out to be almost too sweet, so there is definitely NO need for chocolate chips.

Instead of regular eggs, I often use a flax egg as a substitute. Sound more fancy that it really is- just mix 1 tbsp of flax seed with 3 tbsp of water and wait until it thickens up. Flaxseed is one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. This is what makes them so amazing:

  • Omega-3 essential fatty acids, “good” fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects.
  • Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities. Flaxseed contains 75 to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods.
  • Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types.

You can sprinkle flaxseed on cereal, use it when baking, add some to oatmeal or rice flakes etc…very versatile, they act as a binder in baked goods and other recipes like veggie burgers, add moisture to baked goods and help baked goods rise.
