Gingerbread cookies


– 130g dried dates

1. Pit the dates and pour the hot orange juice on them. Leave until soft (around half an hour).
2. Take the dates out of the juice, blend into a mousse, adding as much juice as necessary.
3. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
4. Add the date mixture and clarified butter, work the dough. If it’s too dry, add some of the orange juice. Let cool in the fridge for half an hour.
5. Roll out the dough on a board sprinkled with flour (it can be a bit sticky) and cut out the cookies with the moulds.
6. Put the cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
7. Bake for 10 minutes in around 180 degrees Celsius [350F].

Almond and nut cookies


– 1 cup oat flakes

– 1 cup ground almonds

– 3/4 cup chopped nuts

– around 1/2 date syrup

– 50g soft clarified butter (ghee)

– optionally, 70g chopped dark chocolate

1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix into a thick, tacky consistency.

2. Form and place cookies on a baking tray lined with a baking sheet.

3. Bake for 10 minutes in 180C [350F].


Thanks to the date syrup the cookies are hard and crunchy. If you prefer them softer, use xylitol instead.
Because of the high nut and optional chocolate content, supplementing vitamin B6 (25mg with a few cookies) is advised.

  1. Cream butter with xylitol, then add the egg and mix.
  2. Add the flour, flakes, baking soda, baking powder and salt and combine.

Apple pie cookies

They’re called that because they taste like apple pie 🙂
In the basic version, they’re a great snack for people who react strongly to very alkaline or very acidogenic food. They don’t require supplementation in the basic version.

– 2 cups oat flakes
– 2-3 apples
– an egg
– xylitol for sweetness
– 1 teaspoon cinnamon
– 2 teaspoons coconut oil
– ground nuts, raisins, goji fruit

1. Peel the apples and grate them into thick stripes. Put the oat flakes in a bowl and then add xylitol, cinnamon, the egg and the grated apples (plus the optional ingredients). Mix it all together and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
2. Form round cookies and lay them on a tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes in 180C [350F].

Oat flake chocolate bar

The author of the original recipe is Edyta Skorupska:

I modified it slightly for people with Candida overgrowth. The cake is delicious – it can be a slightly sweet snack or a savoury dessert.

– 2 cups oat flakes
– 2 cups hot vegetable milk or fruit juice
– 1 cup almonds
– 2 tablespoons freshly ground flaxseed
– 2 teaspoons chia seeds
– 100 ml maple or date syrup or xylitol for sweetness
– 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
– 2 tablespoons peanut butter
– 1 banana
– a handful of dried fruits (goji fruit, raisins, apricots, mango, pineapple)

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C [350F] and line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Put the flakes into a bowl, pour the milk or juice and cover tightly, then let sit for 20 minutes.
3. Put all ingredients except for the fruits into a blender and mix them roughly – the almonds don’t need to be finely ground, just chopped.
4. Cut and add the fruits, put the dough onto the tray and bake for 30-35 minutes.

This version is a good substitute for a store-bought chocolate bar – it’s nutritious, easy to take with you wherever you go. If you want to make it a bit more special, you can spread some caramel on it (made from soaked dates and peanut butter mixed into a cream) and decorate with melted chocolate.
