Yum-my! What's better than a cookie? Nothing but when you can make that cookie even healthier, I'm ALL for that!
This has been my go-to cookie recipe for a long time since it's on the healthier side and uses honey as the sweetener instead of sugar. This time we "Ruvi-lized" our cookies with Ruvi Focus.
How do they taste? DELICIOUS! The cookie itself looks like a dark chocolate cookie because of the Ruvi Focus.
What is Ruvi Focus?
Ruvi Focus is energy for your brain and who couldn't use a little more brain energy, right? It has Blueberry, Grape, Blackberry, Banana, Strawberry, Broccoli, Zucchini, Spinach, Acai, and Maqui Berry and is a delicious, healthy drink from Thrive Life. It's 2 1/2 servings of fruit and 1 1/2 serving of vegetables per packet and that's it. No added sugars, no preservatives or fillers and all the fiber.
Ruvi Focus adds a healthy boost to your cookie! For me, that means I can even feel better while munching away on these Ruvi Focus cookies! Yay me!
Ruvi has 4 tasty flavors and as of this writing, the packets of Ruvi have a best by date now 12 months from the date of manufacturing. Thrive Life continues to test Ruvi real time in its packaging and since Ruvi is so new you will continue to see the best by date get longer over time. We know based on longevity testing on freeze dried ingredients that freeze dried food retains its nutrition and taste for years. However, Thrive Life will continue to test Ruvi to be sure the powder remains free-flowing and performs well. Check out more info on our 4 flavors of Ruvi here. Not only do we love drinking it, as you've noticed, we also like adding it into items we're making!
I'm warning you right now...you will be addicted to these cookies. I TRY and limit myself to 1 per day but once in awhile will have 2. I'm sure it helps because I make a pretty large cookie. Using a cookie scooper and a generous scoop each time, this recipe makes about 30 cookies as I make 2 cookie sheets with 15 each. They also don't spread much when you're cooking them so you don't need to worry about that. They are a cake-type cookie. Mmmmmm cookies and cake? Yes, please!
