WHY IS THIS GOOD FOR ME?

A healthy cookie yes please! These cookies are super delicious, sweet and chewy.. you can’t stop at one! In this recipe I have used hazelnut meal as it has a natural sweet flavour perfect for cookies. Hazelnuts are high in healthy polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats which is great for heart heath. Hazelnuts are also a good source of oleic acid that can lower levels of cholesterol in the body. Chia Seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and are a great source of fibre, protein and calcium.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup hazelnut meal
  • 4 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean pod or essence
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil or macadamia
  • 4 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon gluten free baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons of chia seeds

How To Make This:

  1. Pre heat oven to 160 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients until combined.
  3. Add in the wet ingredients and mix well.
  4. Line tray with baking paper and with a spoon, scoop out some of the mixture and roll into balls (you may want to put some coconut oil on your hands so the mixture does not stick to your hands).
  5. Once rolled into balls gently press them down on the tray not making them too flat.
  6. Place in the oven and cook for 15 mins then take out and cool on a cooling tray.
  7. Enjoy with friends and family! they won’t last long!
