My kids love cookies, but I don’t want them to eat the same item again and over, particularly if it’s not the healthiest option. So, how do you prepare cookies differently three times a week, year round? Use rhubarb, for example!
Time to prepare: 10 minutes
Time to cook: 20 minutes
- 1 tbsp. (15ml) of organic grounded flax seeds
- 6 tbsp. (90ml) of water
- 1 cup (250ml) of organic brown rice flour
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of quinoa flour
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of potato starch
- 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of organic almond flour
- 1 tsp. (5ml) of baking powder
- 1 tsp. (5ml) of baking soda
- 1 tsp. (5ml) of cinnamon
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) of organic brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) of vegan butter
- 1 cup (250ml) of organic chopped rhubarb
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic chopped hazelnut
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic chocolate chips
- Organic toasted coconut (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 375º.
- Chop the rhubarb thinly so there are no big chunks in your cookies.
- In a small bowl, mix the flax seeds with the water and set it aside for 10 minutes.
- In another bowl, combine the rice flour, the quinoa flour, the almond flour, the baking powder, the baking soda, the cinnamon.
- Cream the sugar and the butter. Add the rhubarb, the flax seeds, the flour mix, the hazelnuts and the chocolate chips.
- Put the cookie batter on a cookie sheet, decorate with the coconut and put it in the oven for 20 minutes.
- When they’re cooked, put them on a wire rack to cool down.

I just baked these cookies, and they are the finest I’ve ever tasted! I didn’t have flax seeds, so I substituted chia seeds, and they came out perfectly! I will certainly make them again:)
They were a hit with my husband and kid. Thank you for informing us!
This has become my new favorite dish!!! So simple, so quick, and so delicious! I also like that it is gluten-free. Thank you, Michelle, for all of your excellent suggestions!!!
I just finished preparing these cookies, and they are really amazing. These taste like the rhubarb almond cookies I used to purchase at Whole Foods.
I have to mention that I did not like this dish. It’s not for lack of taste; it’s simply too dull. I believe you put in a lot of time and effort to cook it, but the flavor was bland and lacking in spices. I believe you would have achieved better results if you had tried something else.
I like healthy dishes, and excellent healthy recipes are always preferable to the other sort. and just perfect for packing school lunches:)
That tastes great! Last night, I prepared them with blueberries. They’re a big hit with my spouse!
tasty! I used cranberries instead of rhubarb and they were fantastic.
And one more thing before I say good-by to everyone: You’re 1000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more great, pleasant, and fantastic than any of the recipes on this page. I adore you, I adore you all!
