Muesli Cookies – Just Nuts, Seeds & Egg (Gluten Free).. and Giveaway Winners!

| 26 Comments

You might have noticed that I have a long list of Snacks Recipes here.. I have to admit, I am guilty of always looking for things to munch! Because of my mid-day (more like whole day) snacking habit, I am constantly looking for healthy snacks ideas.

One of my favourite snack to carry with me when I travel is a bag of raw nuts & dried fruits. Eating nuts and seeds are a great way to add vitamins, minerals, fiber, and essential fatty acids (like omega 3 and omega 6) to your diet. This snack not only keep my hunger pangs away, it keeps me occupied when I crave for something to munch during flights or drive. I also noticed that eating nuts can provide a sense of fullness or satisfaction that actually results in me eating less of other high-calorie, high fat foods. Does that happen to you too?

Instead of bringing loose nuts & fruits during my recent trip to China (read about it here), I made them into Muesli Cookies. Use your favourite nuts/seeds/dried fruits and just add egg and honey. As there is no flour added, these are chewy cookies instead of crunchy.

Not only these Muesli Cookies are tasty, they are easy to carry as well. Healthy Nutritious Guilt Free Cookies.

    • you are most welcomed, Helene. I forgot to mention that this snack is chewy and not crunchy. I just got this idea that instead of using egg, it would taste amazing mixing with peanut butter or any homemade nut butter. I think it would make it more crunchy!

  11. Shannon these look simple, delicious, AND healthy!! What a great idea. Bookmarking!

  12. I love this healthy snack too especially with nuts and dried fruits. Will add this recipe in my baking list. Thanks for sharing :)
