Nut/Seed Granola Chocolate Cookies

I love the no-grain granola recipe I found not too long ago. I have re-vamped it and played around with it (using raw honey, chai seasonings, real salt, coconut oil, varying nuts and seeds depending on what I have on hand, coconut, and soaking the nuts/bigger seeds overnight in salt water). For a good post on why NOT to eat oat based granola (even if it is sprouted or soaked), check this out.

Yet, during the colder months, I am finding I just don’t crave a “cold” cereal. Having this huge batch of the grain free granola on hand, I decided to throw some into a batch of cookies I was making. I love the results! I have a healthy cookie, that is full of good fats, fiber and protein. It’s always great to know that the treats we give our children are actually good for them.
