I was experimenting with this, so this recipe might be altered in the future. To make these I used:
1/2 T dark corn
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup flax seed
1/2 cup oatmeal.
I had soaked my raisins in about 1/2 cup of water to make them more plump, but hindsight tells me I might not do this in the future. I ran my raisins in my food processor to make it more like a paste. combine the remaining ingredients. Form into about 1 inch balls. It made 8 balls.
According to a fitness app I have, 1 ball has 136 calories with 23.9 grams of carbs, 2.9 grams of fat, and 2.4 grams of protein.
Overall I like the peanut butter ones better, but that is only because I like peanut butter.

These coffee cookies are also simple. It just has flour, sugar, butter, baking powder, and instant coffee dissolved in water.
It also is a small recipe, it only made 10 cookies for me.
This recipe has:
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
6 tablespoons soft butter
1 tablespoon instant coffee
1 tablespoon water
Combine flour and baking powder in a bowl. Combine water and coffee in a separate bowl. Cream butter and sugar. Add in the flour mixture and coffee mixture. Shape into teaspoon size cookies and press down lightly. If desired, coat in sugar. Bake at 160 degrees C. I baked it at 325 F. I ended up slightly overbaking my cookies cooking them for 17 minutes. So I am going to stick to 10-15 minutes.
Even though I ended up over baking my cookies, I still enjoyed them.
|Made another batch that is cooked at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.|
