Nutty Gluten-free Cookies

As the name indicates, for you nut lovers out there, these cookies are nutty-delicious!

Main nut ingredients in this recipe are walnuts and peanut butter.  Here are some of their nutrition and health stats.

Walnuts have been gracing the news recently as one of the healthiest foods out there and rightly so. They are an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids and contain high level of vitamin E in gamma-tocopherol form which is known to boost cardiovascular health especially in men.  Not only are walnuts super tasty- with its role as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, they are fast becoming an essential ingredient in my recipes.

Peanut butter is such a nutritious spread.  It contains vitamin E – antioxidant, magnesium – building healthy bones, potassium – great for healthy muscles and vitamin B6 – boosting immunity.  It provides a good mix of protein, complex carbohydrate and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.  They promote healthy immune function, keep tissues healthy and give loads of energy.

Seriously though, all this healthy nutrition load aside, with its nutty and chewy yet soft texture in a cookie form, it’s become my new obsession.  Hope you guys love it as well.
