CAN YOU MAKE THIS RECIPE WITHOUT SPIRULINA?

Absolutely! If you can I would recommend using spirulina as it gives a nice festive green color, and you can’t even taste it! However, these Spirulina Chocolate Cookies recipe can be made without spirulina if you want something more simple. You can also use any other green powders (wheatgrass powder, chlorella powder, kale powder…) instead of spirulina.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SPIRULINA?

Spirulina is a type of algae that can be blue or green and grows in the water. It is high in protein, vitamin B1, B2 and B3, copper, iron and other nutrients such as magnesium in smaller quantities. Spirulina is one of the most nutritious-dense food on the planet. The health benefits of consuming spirulina powder include anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, anti-cancer properties, and much more. And guess what is the best way of getting your daily dose of spirulina in? With Spirulina Chocolate Cookies!

Notes

*To turn oats into oat flour, simply blend them in a high-speed blender or food processor until the oats turn into flour. You can also purchase oat flour online or in-store if you don’t have a blender. Make sure you use gluten-free oat flour if you are sensitive to gluten.
**This recipe can be made without the spirulina if preferred. Scroll up to the start of the recipe description to learn about the benefits of spirulina on health.
***Add slightly more plant milk to your cookies dough if the dough does not come together when kneading. If, however, the dough is too sticky, add slightly more oat flour or cornflour.
****To melt the dark chocolate, microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds, or use the bain-marie technique.
