Chocolate Chip Cookies
The chocolate chip cookie is one of the most requested recipes I get… So here it is…Enjoy !
What’s good about them:
Almonds + macadamias are a fantastic are a good source of heart healthy anti-inflamatory fats and antioxidants such as vitamin E. Cocoa is high in minerals and antioxidants. When using cocoa or chocolate the darker the better. I’ve used Green + Blacks organic 85 % dark chocolate in this recipe.
150 g (1 1/2 cups / 5 1/4 oz) almond meal
40 g (about 2 1/2 – 3 tablespoons / 1 1/2 oz) macadamia nut or coconut oil
40 g honey (about 2 tablespoons / 1 1/2 oz)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean extract
50 g (1 3/4 oz) good quality dark chocolate – (I used 85% dark organic chocolate – Organic Greens brand)
Combine the first 4 ingredients.
Mix and form into a dough.
Add a splash of H2O 1 – 2 teaspoons to help form a dough.
Add Chocolate and mix in.
Using a small ice cream scoop or spoon form into 12 cookies.
Press onto a baking tray lined with a sheet of baking paper. I also like to garnish with a little flaked almond before baking.
Bake in a low 130 – 150 C oven for 20 – 30 minutes until golden.
Cool completely before devouring. ! enjoy . makes 12 cookies
