Last Sunday was absolutely glorious – It was sunny outside, the day was free to do whatever I wanted and I started the day with a big beautiful big glass of Kickin’ Kale Juice … just before enjoying these OMG SO GOOD waffles.
You know that feeling when you think you are one of the luckiest girls in the world? Well that’s exactly how I felt during our stay at the Four Seasons Tented Camp.
I wasn’t sure what to think of the specially themed dinners that were planned out in our personalized itinerary. I really had no idea what to expect…but the manager Vikas and Chef Pisan assured us that our dinners would be spectacular, which I found out later to be exactly that. Amazingly spectacular!
After drinks and personalized vegetarian appetizers at the Burma Bar…we were escorted by a ranger through the exotic bamboo jungle by torch into the elephant camp where we were immediately greeted by our elephants Yuki and Pet… feeding them a dinner of sugarcane before the ranger lead us to our dinner. Spending time with our elephants at night was very intimate and just the beginning of many extraordinary touches to come…
I named these cookies “Forever” because they are so darn good that you will wish you were eating them…like… Forever. They also have ZERO junk in them…hopefully helping you look young forever too! There are no refined flours, no refined sugars, contain all organic ingredients and taste so freakin’ good! No one has them beat from a nutritional taste perspective.
Coconut oil is the star of these cookies. Coconut oil was deemed horrible for you and your heart years ago when scientists didn’t understand how this saturated fat worked in the body. Since then, they now understand that coconut oil is made up of “medium chain” fatty acids and contain lauric acid that actually prevent your body from absorbing the cholesterol from the fat and actually help improve cholesterol levels already in the body. These also play a huge role in improving your metabolism (i.e. weight loss!) by removing stress from the pancreas and promote better digestion by helping your gut fight bacteria and fungus.
Now – tell me – can butter do that?
These little babies are a creation that I made up several months ago trying to figure out the recipe for a vegan Earth Fare cookie that is made out of whole wheat flour. This cookie always calls my name at the end of my shopping trip. I think I have shopped there maybe twice without getting one. One of those times, they were out of them and the other was because I knew I had just baked these!
I’ve included the three different methods I like to enjoy Forever Cookies. My favorite is completely raw straight out of the freezer. The taste reminds me of a decadent chocolate chip cookie dough ice-creamishy sandwich….AMAZING.
Try to not be a cookie monster if you make these…
Be Forever Young,
