While you’re busy in the kitchen prepping for Rosh Hashanah, try these delicious and healthy holiday (or everyday) cookie bombs that take no time to prep! No baking needed, decadent, rich and amazing and will take just five mins…one bowl, easy recipe!
Although some call me a health nut, I’m not a believer in deprivation to be healthy. Sweets are delicious and satisfying, especially when made with real, wholesome ingredients. Keep some on hand in the freezer and you’ll never need crappy sugary treats to fill that craving.
These are high in protein, healthy fats and fiber, and can even be made Keto!
Recipe adapted from @consciousplantkitchen but I made my own version.
In a bowl, combine:
- 7/8ths of cup salted almond butter (sugar free)
- 1/8 cup (2 Tbsp) salted peanut butter (sugar free)
- 1/4 cup or less sugar free or regular maple syrup
- 1 cup blanched (white) almond flour
- 10 Tbsp ground flax seeds
Mix well for about a minute.
Shape into balls, flatten, freeze.
Yields: 24 cookies
Optional: If you want, you can melt sugar free chocolate chips and dip half the cookie into it when cold, but I don’t think it’s necessary. It’s rich enough without. Maybe just a drizzle would make it look pretty!

Tip for the week: Turn a family favorite dessert into something healthy and nutritious that tastes just as good that everyone will enjoy!
Shana Tova, wishing you a happy and sweet new year!
