We all deserve something sweet every so often. These healthy cookies are my new go-to treat, the perfect clean-eating solution for everyone with a relentless sweet tooth and the best intentions.
After all, who says chocolate chip cookies are always a ‘guilty’ pleasure? They’re full of nuts, seeds, fruit and delicious cacao – there’s nothing ‘guilty’ about that.
Give the recipe a go, when you see how easy they are, they’ll be your favourites too!
2 cups of ground almonds (activated if possible to remove anti-nutrients) 1 tps baking soda 1/4 tsp sea salt 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup sesame seeds 1/3 cup coconut oil 1/2 tsp vanilla 1/4 cup activated walnuts 1/4 cup raisins 20-30 grams of 85% cacao chocolate chopped up
Making your own Healthy Cookies:
- In a food processor or mixer cream honey and coconut oil and add vanilla. Combine almonds, baking soda and sea salt, then add to wet mixture and mix until a dough is formed. Pulse in sesame seeds, walnuts and raisins. Finally, stir in the chocolate.
- Roll the mixture into little balls and place on a baking tray covered in baking paper. Press each cookie flat, patching up any spilt edges.
- Bake at 150 deg for 15 mins until golden. Once cooked, remove from the oven and cool on a rack.
These are nutritious, low in sugar, fully sustaining and even though it’s such a tiny bit of chocolate, it’s enough to satiate any chocolate friend who’s trying to cut back on their sugar intake (me!) The only problem is, they’re so good I had to make another batch the next day because they didn’t make it into the container!
