I did an IFS Summer Challenge in Bulgaria. I haven’t done it for my English- speaking followers, but I promise I will. There, we share a lot of useful advice about nutrition and people share their food struggles, share their meals and recipes. The other day, one of the participants – Savina Belcheva shared her dinner and her healthy dessert – Oreo cookies ( a healthy version). I couldn’t resist but cooking them. I modified them a little bit and they turned out delicious.
Ingredients for 12 cookies:
120 grams dates (1/2 cup pitted) – pre soak them for 30 minutes
120 grams (1/2 cup) natural cocoa powder
For the filling:
2 bananas (another option is to puree the bananas with some coconut butter and add some more vanilla)
Puree the dates. Add cocoa and vanilla and if the mixture is too thick, add some water. When you get a smooth mixture (but not a liquid like), you have the cookies. Shape them in cookie like shape.
Cut the bananas in circles – 1.5-2 cm. thickness.
Stick two pieces of cookies with one banana in between.
Leave in the fridge and you have healthy Oreo cookies.
