These cookies are really nice, they're crunchy & a little chewy at the same time... You do need a little bit of time on your hands though since you'll need to chill the dough for a few hours to allow them to firm up. It's worth the wait!
- 60g coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp raw organic honey
- 1 egg
- 175g ground almonds
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 50g chopped Paleo friendly chocolate or any chocolate with a high cocoa solid content...
Start by beating the melted coconut oil, vanilla, honey & egg together until well combined.
Next, add the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
That's it!... Best & easiest recipe ever!!! Leave the cookie dough in the fridge for 2-3 hours. This allows the coconut oil to harden, giving you a firm dough. If you skip this step, you will have greasy cookies.... don't say I didn't warn you....
Once the cookies are chilled, take generous teaspoon size mounds of dough and roll into balls.
Place on a non stick baking tray, and flatten gently with your finger tips. The cookies only spread a tiny bit, so don't worry about leaving much room between them.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 160d (fan oven), until the cookies are firm & golden brown.
Allow to cool on the baking tray, or just eat them warm...You can freeze the dough too, but I know you're not going to do that!
