Your brain is your greatest resource—use it by design to help you achieve health, happiness, and success!

—Arlene R. Taylor PhD

Many people grew up eating home-made cookies only to find that the typical chocolate chip cookie is filled with fat, sugar, and white flour—a type of food that is not recommended in a Longevity Lifestyle. Using carob (instead of chocolate) and dates and raisins (instead of sugar) and using no fat at all, makes for a much healthier cookie that is quite tasty.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup raw nuts (your choice)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup chopped dates
  • ½ cup carob chips
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup oat flour (blend old-fashioned oats)
  • ½ cup non-wheat whole grain flour


Blend water, nuts, and vanilla in a blender. Pour into a mixing bowl.

Add all other ingredients and stir until moistened.

Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet.

Place a spoonful of batter on parchment paper the size of cookies you want.

Place cookie sheet in over preheated to 350 degrees F. and bake 15-20 minutes until desired consistency. If you like cookies that are lightly browned but soft, check after 15 minutes. If you like cookies that are crisper and chewier, bake an additional 5 minutes and then check on them.


Serve warm or cold.
