PCOS & Endometriosis Recipes

Breakfast “Cookies”

This is one of my favorite finds from a paleo cookbook. I ran with the original recipe and made it my own.

It’s very loose. I’ll give you the basics, tell you what I do, and run from there.

  • Nuts (Walnuts or pecans or peanuts or peanut butter or almond butter)
  • Sunflower seeds
  • unsweetened coconut
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp b. soda
  • chocolate chips
  • 1/4-ish cup maple syrup (or honey)

I use a food processor. I process walnuts or peanuts until I have about a cup of nut butter like substance. If you let the food processor run long enough it gets to be a wet like substance similar to peanut butter. You can use regular old peanut butter and skip the food process nut step.

I then add about a cup or more of sunflower seeds, about 1/2 cup of coconut, and the rest of the ingredients except the chocolate chips. I add those in after by hand. The resulting dough is oily looking but able to be shaped easily.

I spray a muffin tin and this makes about 18-24 “cookies”. I use these in place of a protein bar. I like that they are dense and high in protein. It also hits a bit of the sweet tooth without being super unhealthy. Bake at 350 for about ten minutes. They do brown and puff up a bit when done.
