These cookies help me forget that I totally failed at Lent. My Lent-alution (Lent-resolution) had been to start meditating every day for ten minutes. I managed a week. I did feel the benefits of that one week, but I didn’t properly prioritise it, and I felt quite frustrated often while I was doing it. I’m going to try going to meditation classes to see if having a guide makes it a bit easier. Lentfail.
One thing I absolutely didn’t fail on is these lovely cookies. I made a batch for a friend who has a new baby, as I wanted to give her something nourishing but delicious to snack on when she’s only got one hand free. They fit the bill perfectly – the nuts and seeds give minerals and protein, and they really do taste like Nutella, from the cocoa and ground hazelnuts. You could use an egg instead of the linseeds if you wanted.
Did you do anything different for Lent? Did you do better at it than I did?
