in the pursuit of overall well-being, paying attention to hormone health is essential :).
*ALWAYS* speak to your physician about your hormone health!
one way to try and support this is through homemade no-bake antioxidant cookies specifically crafted to nurture our bodies.
they’re packed with antioxidants and hormone-supporting ingredients that taste amazing too.
the natural sweetness from medjool dates complements the nutty richness of almond butter, while the freeze-dried blueberries provide a burst of fruity goodness.
the oats contribute a satisfying chewiness, and the hemp seeds add sort of a nutty flavor too, it’s divine!
together, these ingredients create a cookie that is both indulgent and wholesome.
flexibility is key when it comes to creating a recipe that is tailored to your tastebuds.
for those with nut allergies, consider substituting almond butter with sunflower seed butter or another nut-free alternative.
swap out the dairy-free milk for your favorite plant-based option like soy, allowing you to customize the recipe to accommodate personal dietary needs without compromising on taste or texture.
using unsweetened chocolate
the rich chocolate coating, made with unsweetened chocolate chips and coconut oil, adds a velvety finish to these hormone-support cookies.
using unsweetened chocolate (brand pascha) allows you to enjoy the richness of chocolate without the added sugars, keeping the treat balanced and supportive of hormonal health.
however, you’re of course more than welcome to use chocolate chips that have added sugar! there are brands that are date sweetened also, like hu chocolate!
why these ingredients support hormone health: a nutrient-rich treat
medjool dates: packed with natural sugars, fiber, and essential minerals, dates provide sustained energy and support digestive health.
almond butter: rich in healthy fats and protein, almond butter contributes to hormone production and aids in maintaining a stable blood sugar level.
hemp seeds: a powerhouse of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, hemp seeds support hormonal balance and overall heart health.
freeze-dried blueberries: bursting with antioxidants and vitamins, blueberries offer anti-inflammatory benefits and contribute to cellular health.
rolled oats: high in fiber and complex carbohydrates, oats help regulate blood sugar levels and provide a steady release of energy.
unsweetened chocolate: packed with antioxidants, unsweetened chocolate supports cardiovascular health and provides a rich source of magnesium, a mineral crucial for hormone production.
by combining these nutrient-dense ingredients, these hormone-support no-bake antioxidant cookies offer a delicious and healthful way to nurture your body.
it’s fun to embrace creating a treat that not only satisfies your taste buds but also contributes to your overall well-being!

Hormone-Support No Bake Antioxidant CookiesCourse: Snacks, Sweet
or the base:
1 cup medjool dates, pitted
1/3 cup runny almond butter
1/3 cup hemp seeds
1 and 1/2 ounces freeze-dried blueberries
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup dairy-free milk (add more if needed)
for the chocolate coating:
1 and 1/4 cups unsweetened chocolate chips
1 tbsp coconut oil
- prepare muffin cups: line a muffin tin with parchment paper cups.
- prepare the base:
in a food processor, combine pitted medjool dates, almond butter, hemp seeds, freeze-dried blueberries, rolled oats, vanilla extract, and dairy-free milk.
- process the mixture until it forms a sticky and well-combined dough. if the mixture is too dry, add more dairy-free milk, one tablespoon at a time, until you achieve a sticky consistency.
- shape the bites:
scoop out about 2 tablespoon-sized portions of the mixture and roll them into balls. place each ball into the prepared muffin cups.
put the muffin tin in the freezer and allow the bites to set for at least one hour.
- prepare the chocolate coating:
in a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler, melt the unsweetened chocolate chips and coconut oil together until smooth. stir well to combine.
- coat the bites:
take the frozen bites out of the muffin tin. using a fork or toothpick, dip each frozen bite into the melted chocolate, ensuring it is fully coated. allow any excess chocolate to drip off.
place the coated bites back into the muffin cups. once all the bites are coated, return the muffin tin to the freezer for an additional 10-15 minutes to allow the chocolate coating to set.
once the chocolate coating is fully set, transfer the bites to an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator.
