Omega 3 Paleo Cookies – No Sweetener Added

untitled--2

Recently Mr Rockstar’s doctor said he needs to have 1000-1500 mg Omega 3’s each day.  Preferably more than half of this would be EPA and most of the rest DHA.  This is IMPOSSIBLE to find in multi vitamins (if you know of any good ones let me know).  This fish oil liquid from vita cost  is relatively inexpensive if you catch one of their sales.  It doesn’t have a strong fish taste but drinking 2 tsp of oil a day is gross.  I found I could bake with it just fine.  I did extensive research and found that baking does not break down the omega 3 fatty acid chains but frying or grilling does.  This is true with fresh fish as well.  Studies have shown eating fried fish is worse for you health than eating no fish because frying breaks down the good fatty acid chains at the same time you are adding bad fats.  So I bake these (and other) cookies and the kids get 2-3 a day for their fish oil supplement.  They freeze just fine and you can reheat as needed.
