We are so glad you've found our epically popular Chocolate Graham Cookie Mix!
Here's what you should know about this Gut Relieving, Immune Benefiting Functional Baking Blend:
First, let's define a few terms we like to use here at You Again:
1) Functional: Functional foods and ingredients serve a health benefiting purpose in our bodies. No ingredient is wasted energy or "calories". We believe ingredients matter and food should serve a purpose.
2) Adaptogens: These are plant or herbs that when consumed "adapt" to the imbalances within our body to bring us back to homeostasis, naturally! They have been used for centuries, primarily in India and Chia through ancient medicines called Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Now let's highlight a few of our Superstar Ingredients:
Cassava Flour: A starchy vegetable that is grain and nut-free!
Tigernut Flour: It's actually not a nut! This prebiotic-rich plant is high in protein and fiber and has a sweet taste.
Mesquite: This ancient superfood comes from tree pods. It's rich in minerals, good on the gut, and has an earthy caramel taste.
Amla: Amla is one of the most used Ayurvedic herbs. It's actually a fruit, coming from the Amalaki fruit, and it's very high in Vitamin C. It's a super-antioxidant!
Guduchi: Guduchi (goo-doo-chee) is an Ayurvedic adaptogen commonly used to support overall health and longevity.
Coconut Sugar: We are very careful about our sugar consumption which is why we use only a small amount of sugar, but we choose organic, natural sweetener from Coconut.
Now onto baking! Try these Chocolate Graham Recipes:
Chocolate Graham Cookies:
1/3 cup melted coconut oil (if you do not have nut sensitivities, try creamy cashew butter or tahini)
1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Mix the entire package with the wet ingredients in a large bowl until cookie dough forms. Drop 1 rounded tbsp of cookie mix onto a lined or oiled baking sheet. Form into a circle so it bakes into a perfectly round cookie. Bake for 10-13 minutes. Baking times may vary.
Makes approximately 15 cookies.
Try them as graham crackers! Just roll the dough into a 1/2 inch sheet. Poke holes with a fork to get the graham cracker look. Bake for 10-13 minutes, let cool then cut into square.
Want to skip the baking? Many enjoy this mix as cookie dough. Here's our favorite bliss ball recipe.
