Shamrock Cookies

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! (early). I’m not Irish, I don’t drink, so this isn’t one of those top holiday’s for me. However, I do like festive decorations and cooking for the holiday šŸ™‚

I’m giving this recipe to you now so if you want to make it you have time before the holiday!

I came across some cute cheap 99 cent cookie cutters in Michael’s and had to make some kind of cookie with them, but wanted to keep it healthy!

These cookies are green from two special ingredients

  1. Jell-O Pistachio Pudding Mix (Fat free, sugar free)
  2. Avocado

Avocado MAY sound weird, but really it is just a replacement for butter! Avocados are naturally buttery and have that smooth velvety texture. It goes great with oats to make an oat type cooke šŸ™‚

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1 medium size avocado
  • 2 cups of old fashioned oats
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 package of Fat Free Sugar Free Pistachio Jell-O pudding (1 package is 1 oz)
  • 2/3 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup of stevia in the raw
  • 1/4 cup of natural applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

Makes 12 cookies

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mix 1/2 the package of pudding with 2/3 cup of almond milk
