Ok technically, Butter and chocolate aren’t Paleo but you can sub out the butter for coconut oil and the Chocolate for raisins. But more importantly, these truly are good for the soul, sometimes you deserve a little bit of a treat with your Detox Dandelion tea, n’est pas?!!
- 1/3 cup Coconut oil (or Butter if you’re not too strict about Paleo)
- 1/3 cup Honey
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
- 2 cups Ground Almonds ( I like to soak, dry and grind them myself)
- 1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- pinch of Salt
- 1/2 cup Raisins OR good quality Dark Chocolate chunks (70% or higher)
Preheat oven to 150 c. In a food processor blend butter, honey and vanilla. Add almonds, coconut, baking soda and salt. Blend for a few seconds until combined.
Mix in chocolate chunks. Roll into balls and place on a cookie tray, gently press down on each cookie with a fork. Bake for about 8-10 minutes until the cookies are golden.
You can vary this recipe no end. We quite like peanut butter in our house, so sometimes I add 1/3 cup of peanut butter to the mix.
