Who among you can say no to Double Chocolate? Not me, because I could die for Chocolate . I’m particularly fond of cookies, which are somehow so handy and just look tempting. You know those glass containers in various coffee shops? I was going to get one of these containers once, but then decided against it. Otherwise, I could also go right back to shopping for clothes and buy me two sizes larger. Joking aside, our today’s Cookies come completely without oil or margarine, but unfortunately still contain calories. No one has ever invented cookies Cookies without sugar, fat and flour.
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE COOKIES FOR THE WIN
Almond paste, raw cane sugar (or another sugar of your choice), Flaxseed egg , applesauce, bourbon vanilla, spelt flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder and melted chocolate. These are the basic ingredients. What must not be missing in any case? Extra chocolate drops on top.
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a silicone spatula, or wooden spoon until smooth . Divide into about 18 portions of 40g each, roll into a ball and place on the baking tray. Then just flatten once more and sprinkle with chocolate drops.
HOW HEALTHY ARE ACTUALLY OILS?
I deliberately omit the addition of oil this time, why? Oil is very, very high in calories, such as sunflower oil, which is 879 kcal per 100ml. Now you might think that nut muses also have a lot of calories. Right, because Almond paste also shines with 642 calories per 100g. The big difference, however, is that with pure oil, many fibers and macronutrients are no longer included. These are simply removed during the pressing of oil.
The more I learn about nutrition, the clearer it becomes that overconsumption of vegetable oils is not particularly valuable for health. I’m leaning more and more toward an oil-free diet consisting of whole fruits, nuts (which already contain all the important fats we need) and Vegetables and cereals. I would like to emphasize quite clearly that I do not want to do without oil from one day to the next, but simply use it more consciously. Because, of course, I want us to get the best out of our diet together.
How healthy is sugar in cookies?
I think with Sugar we don’t need to beat around the bush. Sugar is a raw material of which we generally consume far too much. But it’s often the hidden sources of sugar that add up over the course of the day. Have you ever consciously looked at the label of an ordinary tomato sauce from the supermarket? Here, the types of sugar often mix together in a counter-colorful way. That’s why I’m more into homemade dishes, where I can decide for myself how much sugar I use. Here are a few tips to reduce sugar consumption without having to go without:
- Buy as little processed food as possible and cook for yourself. Even if it is more effort at first glance, your health will thank you. Pre-cooking pays off and takes out a lot of stress.
- Avoid sugary drinks, including sugar substitutes and sweeteners (suspected of negatively affecting the intestinal flora). Consciously switch to water and spritzers with low juice content and tea.
- If you buy ready-made products, then be sure to look at the ingredients. Sugar hides under many names in foods, the most common being sugar, glucose, glucose-fructose syrup, invert sugar syrup, dextrose, barley malt, and many more. The further forward the ingredient is in the row, the more of it is in the product.
