Healthy Almond and Choc Chip Cookies

Sometimes we would all like to have a little something sweet with a hot drink, after a meal or for a quick snack and if can be a healthy treat so much the better. Why not make that little something a healthy treat nutritious and tasty too?

The following recipe swaps flour for almond meal making this recipe also Gluten Free. The cookies are full of healthy fats and antioxidants but don’t let that¬† fool you though, just as with their unhealthy, sugar loaded cousins, if you eat too many,¬† you will put on weight.

Ingredients

2 cups almond meal
1 tsp baking soda
A pinch of Himalayan salt
1/4 cup organic coconut oil
2 tbsp Organic Maple Syrup or raw honey
Small handful of cacao nibs

Method

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line a baking tray in preparation

Place the almond meal, baking soda, salt, coconut oil and maple syrup into a bowl. Mix all the ingredients together until combined thoroughly.

Once the ingredients are combines add the cacao nibs.

Roll the mixture into small balls

Press each ball down onto the lined baking tray just using your fingers or if you want a fancier look use the back of a fork

Bake in the oven for approx 8-15 minutes checking around the 10 minute mark.

Transfer the cookies on to a rack until cool

Enjoy these healthy treats with your favorite coffee, tea or just enjoy by themselves
