These are pretty darn good, even if I do say so myself. Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, sweet enough without being sickly or losing the rich dark chocolate flavour, these are the perfect treat. These are also free from grains, gluten, dairy and refined sugars, so allergy-sufferers and health-conscious folks, rejoice!

 

Makes 12-15 cookies

Ingredients:

250g ground almonds

5g coconut flour

85g coconut sugar

25g cacao powder

1tsp bicarbonate of soda

Large pinch of salt

4tbsp coconut oil

40g almond butter

2 eggs

1/2tbsp or a dash of almond milk

75g dark chocolate, chopped, or dark chocolate drops

 

Method:

1.) Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan) and line two baking trays with baking paper

2.) Mix together the ground almonds, coconut flour, coconut sugar, cacao powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt together in a large bowl (or in a food processor). I personally like to do this by hand using a wooden spoon and a mixing bowl.

3.) Add the coconut oil, eggs, almond butter and almond milk to the dry mixture and stir together thoroughly to form a sticky dough.

4.) Stir in the chopped dark chocolate or chocolate drops.

5.) Using your hands, shape the mixture into 15 balls and squash to flatten slightly when placing them onto the baking trays.

6.) Bake for 8-10 minutes until slightly crispy on the outside. Best enjoyed warm! Store the cookies in an airtight container and eat within a few days.

 

Enjoy!
