"I came to the TTC/Ashram a very different person than when I left. The experience had a profound impact upon me that I will never forget. I feel like it gave me hope and an inner peace that I had been seeking and could not find elsewhere. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity. The instructors, speakers, karma yogis and other attendees were kind, devoted and inspirational. I would recommend the Ashram and TTC to anyone." ~ Kathryn W.

Cashew Goji Superfood Cookies

Recipe shared by Grace Van Berkum

The following recipe can be a healthy, nutrient dense breakfast, snack, or dessert that will provide you with sustainable energy. It’s an excellent source of protein and essential fatty acids too.

  • 1 1/2 cups cashews
  • 2/3 cups medjool (pitted) dates
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup goji berries
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • pinch of himilayan sea salt
  • optional: 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup

Grind cashews into powder first. Add everything else and process into a dough in your food processor. Roll into small balls. Place on plate or tray on parchment paper and make sure to space them out well. Wet a fork and then press down in the middle of the cashew cookie ball to flatten it and leave fork lines on top. Re-wet fork for every cookie so dough does not keep sticking to fork. Store in freezer. When ready to eat, enjoy frozen or wait a few minutes for it to de-thaw. Superfood high protein yumminess!
