Hildegard’s Cookies for the Heart – try this easy to make and sugar-free recipe to treat yourself and your loved ones.

Dear Creatrix,

In German, we say: “Liebe geht durch den Magen.”

Which means something like: love enters through your stomach.

I first made these cookies when I still lived in Berlin and started to learn about Hildegard von Bingen.

My interest wasn’t so much in what she knew, but how she knew, and she has been one of my greatest inspirations to seek the answers within.

In her time, she received incredible knowledge through visions, something we can still benefit from today.

“We cannot live in a world interpreted for us by others. An interpreted world is not a hope. Part of the terror is to take back our listening, to use our own voice, to see our own light.”
– Hildegard von Bingen

Her wisdom about plants and how to use them to support and heal our bodies is incredible, so this cookie recipe is inspired by her knowledge.

She used spelt for many things and considered it one of the most beneficial grains.

The spices are what bring in the joy and energy and can support our heart, our nerves and ourselves though, and they are powerful, so don’t eat too many at once!

You can find different variations of these cookies online, this version is vegan and sugar-free because this helps clear our senses, and it’s more beneficial for our bodies.

Hildegard’s Cookies for the Heart

Ingredients:

1/2 apple
9 dates
4 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons coconut oil
0,5 teaspoon ground clover
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
0,5 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons linseeds
100g ground almonds
300g spelt flour (or until texture is good to roll and cut cookies)

   Cut the apple into small pieces and boil with a bit of water until soft. Then add the dates and let it cool down for a while.

Use a blender to turn the mix into a soft sauce and add spices, coconut oil, baking powder and honey.

Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the dry ingredients, first the linseeds (let sit for ten minutes), then the nuts and then the flour cup by cup as needed – mix with a spoon until it turns into a nice cookie batter.

Roll out the dough, cut out little cookies (I used a heart and star shaped cutter, but anything goes really) and bake at around 180° for 10 to 15 minutes or until they are lightly brown.

 

That’s it!

A healthy treat, from the heart and good for the heart for you and your loved ones.

Enjoy!

The Wheel of Colours is a traditional tool that can help us to understand what we need in certain situations.

We are all made up out of the same stuff, but everything is arranged uniquely in each person – which leads to us all needing different things in different moments.

If you’d like to find out what YOU need to start a project, to work with other people, to successfully finish something, to heal, to spark your creativity or what your unique gift is that you bring to the world, then the Wheel of Colours will help you to see this and yourself in a new and very practical way.

It will also show you how you can listen to your inner truth and that of others, what your most important lesson is and also what your most difficult challenge will be, that once you overcome it will bring you to the completion of your wheel – and allow you to start again in a smoother, more enlightened and balanced way.
