Raw Flax-Carob Cookies

flax carob cookiesThese raw flax-carob cookies are easy to make and super nutritious. Not only are they yummy, they are extremely efficient anti-inflammatory agents, are anti-cancer, high in fibre and good for our skin. Flaxseeds are naturally very high in the omega-3 essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). These ALA’s are beneficial in treating a range of ailments, including reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer, acne, arthritis, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, burns, depression and menstrual pain. Flaxseeds also have a natural laxative effect and naturally swell in the digestive tract, helping to remove the waste out of the body. Make sure to drink enough water though, otherwise they may have the opposite effect!

For this yummy snack, I used dried fruits for the sweetness and spices for the flavour. Taste the mixture after combining all together and if you want it sweeter, you can add your favorite sweetener such as honey or coconut sugar.
