Whoa, so that was a mouthful of a title. Dude. I made these today for a recently knocked up friend of mine who feels like death on a stick. So good. I took a few recipes and made up my own so they are not perfect, but they are delightful. They are fairly low sugar, low carb, but not my usual keto low carb high fat-ness, so they actually taste really, really good.
The truth is, pregos and new mamas just deserve cookies. And these lovelies will make you feel better AND feel good about the fact that you are actually getting some wicked nutrition to your growing bump. Even if people ain’t gotta clue what’s under the hood. I hate those first few weeks of feeling like a marshmallow. Bahhh. Eat the cookie and tell everyone to eff off.
These babies have a few of my favorite pregnancy things:
Ginger. A shit ton. And so good for that all day morning sickness crap.
Ghee. I am telling you, fat gets rid of the nausea. You want carbs, but I promise fat actually makes you feel better. AND lots of cultures have been using Ghee for years as a pregnancy super boost. Just eat the ghee.
Eggs. The perfect pregnancy food rich in choline for that baby.
Flax meal. High fiber, excellent source of Omega-3s, vitamin E, and B complex vitamins, and minerals such as: manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium.
Black strap molasses. I think this is a superfood – medicinal powerhouse.
“Blackstrap molasses has a low glycemic index. This means the glucose and carbohydrates are metabolized slowly, demanding less insulin production and stabilizing blood sugar. This results in less lipids or fats being stored in the liver while reducing your diabetes 2 risk factor.
Because of its high iron content, many use blackstrap molasses to holistically overcome anemia. Iron is essential to creating red blood cells. In addition to iron, blackstrap molasses contains folate, a natural source for folic acid, along with some other B vitamins, which all combine to form the synergistic mix that promotes red blood cell production.
Then there is magnesium in abundance, along with calcium. Magnesium is important for balancing calcium for bone production and energy. It is necessary for the smooth function of our nervous system. The mineral is essential to over 300 metabolic processes and the synthesis of almost all the other minerals and vitamins.”
Oh, and did I mention, they are delightful? Okay here you go buttercup.
All Day Morning Sickness Cookies
Wet (mix first)
- two eggs
- 1/2 cup nuttzo
- 1/2 cup melted unsalted kerrygold butter
- 1 teaspoon anise extract (optional)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/4 cup blackstrap molasses (could maybe even do 1/2 cup)
- 4 inch piece ginger fresh grated
Dry (mix separately, then slowly incorporate into wet mixture)
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons flax meal
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch of salt
- extra molasses, to garnish cookies
Spoon out 1 tablespoon droplets onto a parchment lined or salpit lined cookie sheet, bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Allow to cool completely before removing from tray (I stick mine in the freezer for a few minutes). Add to plate and sprinkle with a little coconut sugar. Give to your favorite prego.
In other news, if you follow me on Insta (@eatcleanpissglitter, duh) you already know. BUTT, yesterday I discovered that you can add fizz (carbonated water) to Starsucks drinks! Yessss, uh-huh I KNOW. So I got a half green half passion fruit iced tea ADD FIZZ. NO sugar. SOOOOOO AMAZING. Pregos need two things: fizz and cookies.
