Planet Organic Cosmic Cookie Recipe The Perfect Healthy Snack

Cosmic Cookies

I’ve been wanting to make these cookies all summer, but it’s been just too hot in our house to turn on the oven. Taking advantage of a slightly overcast day, we got right to work making these delicious, packed with nutrients, Planet Organic Cosmic Cookies. They have been a favorite of mine ever since a friend introduced them to me several years ago while on a winter get-a-way to Canmore for some cross-country skiing.

These cookies are sold at the Planet Organic market and at one time they had this recipe online. Unfortunately I could no longer find the recipe there but Food.com still has it.  So if you haven’t tried them yet, here is the recipe bellow. Despite the long list of ingredients, these cookies are well worth the effort! Great cookies to take hiking, as a post-workout snack or just to enjoy with a cold glass of milk.
