I felt like making shortbread cookies (my kids love shortbread) and I had this simple recipe idea in my head that kept on whispering to me to give it a try. One morning, I finally made my mind up. I put everything into a bowl. BANG! And then I started experimenting.
In the end, I developed 3 variations on the same theme. A cinnamon version, a salted caramel one and finally, the one my Dridri (Adrien who’s almost 5) likes best, the mint chocolate version.
They’re not really shortbread cookies, but they’re not soft cookies either. They’re like soft and crunchy at the same time. Personally, I just LOVE the texture. So that’s why I decided to call them Soft ‘n’ Crunchy cookies. A really fun little source of PROTEIN and FIBRE.
Naturally GLUTEN FREE, they are also EGG FREE and take no time at all to make. You can also have fun making shapes with the dough… just like play dough. Now there’s a great idea for a family activity.
As always, because they’re sweetened with date puree, they’re super healthy and make for a delicious snack that provides lasting energy. YAY!
