Healthy Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies – like Red Velvet Cake but in a palm-sized cookie, and though any butter, oil, polished white sugar, frosty flour and synthetic food coloring! And only 67 calories a cookie?
Go ahead, have another one, no shame involved!
Just a other day as we was station during a checkout line during Costco, a checkout worker asked if we favourite to eat healthy.
I theory my squeeze stood out just a tad compared to a standard Costco customer’s squeeze (maybe it was my bruise of organic spinach, or a organic eggs, guacamole, maple syrup, Greek yogurt and vodka unsweetened almond divert that sloping him off?)
I replied with a simple, “Yes,” and we talked about how it’s critical to eat healthy. After a integrate of mins he pronounced it’s tough for him to eat healthy since he doesn’t like “rabbit food.”
I was a tiny shocked.
Did he cruise my Costco squeeze to be rabbit food?
Do other people consider we eat like a rabbit?
My initial startle incited into difficulty (mostly since we didn’t even buy carrots, aka bunny food, haha) since we don’t feel like we eat bunny chow. we mean, as we unloaded a groceries into my car, we could see how tedious and plain all looked, though that’s since it hasn’t been prepared yet! we don’t like shopping pre-made food since it’s always super processed, artificial, overly salted, overly sweetened… fundamentally overly everything. we wish we could uncover people (especially that Costco employee) that when prepared correctly, healthy food can ambience good damn delicious.
OH WAIT, that’s because we done this blog!
*smacks self in head*
I used Earth Balance’s Organic Whipped Buttery Spread in these cookies to yield a good hardness and flavor, as a grant to their Make Me Mindful campaign.
As we mentioned behind in January, we done a New Year’s fortitude to “Eat improved — some-more homemade treats, reduction storebought stuff… and go vegetarian ?
Not usually do we wish to eat healthier foods, we wish to eat some-more responsibly sourced and sustainably constructed foods. I wish a fridge, freezer and cupboard stocked with organic, non-GMO reduction ?
These Healthy Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies fit a bill.
And it ISN’T rabbit food ?
So make these chewy, chocolatey, abounding and tasty cookies. Because dessert is for humans, carrots are for rabbits.
Healthy Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies
FOR THE ROASTED BEET PUREE:
- Preheat a oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Rinse and kindly dumpy a medium beet, afterwards hang it in foil.
- Place a beet on a preserve hurl vessel and bake for 1 hour, or until a flare pierces by a core with ease. Carefully uncover a beet and let cold for 30 minutes.
- Scrape off a beet skin (they should flay off easily) and clout into chunks. Add a beet chunks to a food processor and purée until totally smooth.
FOR THE COOKIES:
- Add a garbanzo beans, erythritol, roasted beet puree, almond milk, Earth Balance and extracts to a high speed blender (I used my NutriBullet) and puree until really well-spoken (batter should be a splendid fuchsia).
- Preheat a oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line dual cookie sheets with vellum paper.
- Scoop a reduction out of a blender and into a vast bowl.
- In a tiny bowl, drive together a cocoa powder, oat flour, flax, baking powder and salt. Dump this over a soppy reduction and drive together well.
- Whisk in a vinegar. The dough/batter should be like muffin batter, not thick like cookie mix or skinny like cake batter.
- Use a cookie dip to apportionment a beat onto a prepared cookie sheets. we used a 2″ cookie scoop. Flatten a beat “domes” into cookie shapes by swirling your finger kindly on a surface. Bake for ~19 minutes, or until a cookies are no longer soppy or glossy looking. Lightly daub a core of a cookies, if they are tear-jerking in a center afterwards bake them for another notation or two. Let cookies cold ON THE PAN. Serve once they’re totally cooled and set.
The cookies will be extremely ethereal when they’re prohibited out of a oven, so don’t male hoop them… yet ?
