These raw no bake sandwich cookies are not just your everyday treat. This is a specially formulated seed cycling recipe for the second half of your cycle so that you can REALLY look forward to enjoying your seeds each and everyday.
No Bake Sandwich Cookies for seed cycling
After my Almond Butter Fat Bombs went over so well with you ladies I just knew I needed to create more yummy seed cycling recipes, which is not the easiest task because the seeds must be raw and ground. As you may already know this is the best way to fully reap the benefits of seed cycling.
How the No Bake Sandwich Cookie was born…
I was in my luteal phase and got to thinking about what other yummy raw recipes I could create. What about some no bake cookies I thought. Yeah that’s a good idea! I got cracking and as I put the ingredients together I realised that to consume the daily dose of seed cycling seeds you would need to eat two of these little cookies.
And then it hit me… sandwich cookies! Put two of these no bake cookies together, fill them and make a sandwich cookie. And so the No Bake Sandwich Cookies for Seed Cycling was born.
Can I eat these No Bake Sandwich Cookies if I’m not doing Seed Cycling?
Yes, of course you can! In fact after I was done photographing them my hubby was like ‘Is it safe for me to have these?’ I’m like ‘No they’re for ladies only’ … hahaha. That was my attempt to keep them all for myself but unfortunately he didn’t fall for it.
These No Bake Sandwich Cookies are absolutely perfect for everyone. They’re especially handy during the summer when most of us have no desire to turn on the oven.
The filling for these No Bake Sandwich Cookies is a dark chocolate chia pudding. The pudding will need some time to thicken so consider making it a few hours or the day before.
If you have any pudding left over after you’ve filled your cookies you can eat it straight or top your coconut oil oatmeal with it. If you’re not into chia seed pudding enjoy your cookies plain or use another filling of your choice. For example you can slice a banana into coins and use one slice as the filling. You’ve got options.
So tell me, have you tried seed cycling and do you think recipes like this will make it easier to follow through with the process?

I thought I was on to something nice until I saw honey in the ingredients. This vegan doesn’t eat honey – it is an animal product.
Maple syrup is an easy substitute as any vegan would know 😉
Of course, theoretically, extracting the sap of the maple trees may hurt insects or surrounding wildlife. So perhaps that vegan could just use some GMO crap refined sugar instead.
Sorry, I may be in the wrong phase of my cycle to be making blog comments. 😉
These turned out awesome! Lutal phase cycling is always the hardest for me to not get sick. But these rock, didn’t do the chia seed pudding, maybe next week. Thanks for the ideas!
So so happy you enjoyed these seed cycling cookies Kait! The pudding is absolutely optional but does take the cookies to the next level .. lol Give it a try next time. Wishing you a peaceful cycle 🙂
Could i use the same recipe and just swop seeds out for follicular phase?
I can’t eat rolled oats that is not soaked for more than 24 hrs, otherwise I will feel bloated. How to incorporate soak oats and adjust the recipe to achieve the same result?
I guess you have some experimenting to do 🙂
There are no instructions on how to make the chia pudding. I ended up using my mixer to make the pudding except it’s really runny. I popped everything in the fridge hoping it will thicken up. Any suggestions? Looking forward to taste testing these!
Hi Alex, for the pudding you mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl with a spoon. If it’s too runny for your liking add more chia seeds but it does thicken up with time.
