Anneke came back from her holiday yesterday. She and her boyfriend Angelo decided to sleep in today. I thought it would be a nice idea if they would wake up to the smell of baked cookies. So I made these sports cookies.
Anneke is a big fan of Rens Kroes, a Dutch (Frysian) girl, partly living in New York who is a super (healthy) food addict. I love power food as well, so I browsed through her cook book Power food from Friesland to New York and found this cookies. I changed it a little bit, by putting in my favorite power foods, but it comes close to the original recipe. Rens makes these Sports cookies for when she gets hungry after a workout. I like them every moment of the day.
Ingredients Sports Cookies
- 50 grams of almonds
- 50 grams of cacao beans
- 50 grams oatmeal
- 30 grams of rice flower
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
- 1 spoon of protein powder
- 2 eggs
- 50 grams of raisins
- 2 spoons of sesame seeds
Preparation Sports Cookies
- Roast the cacao beans and peel them
- Throw the beans and the almonds in a food processor and chop them to little pieces.
- Beat the eggs in a bowl until they are mixed very well.
- Add the eggs and all the other ingredients to the cacao beans/almonds mix and mix and chop.
- Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius
- Make balls from your mix and flatten them on a piece of kitchen paper so you have the shape off cookies. Make sure there is about 2 centimeter between the cookies.
- Bake for circa 20 minutes.
The Sports Cookies are a big energizer. The oats will give you a lot of energy and the cacao beans will give you a boost. They are savory; just the raisins make them a bit sweet, but I like savory after a workout.
