Ingredients

Cookies

  • ¾ cup almonds
  • 2 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
  • ¼ tsp vanilla essence or raw vanilla powder
  • ¼ cup goji berries
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 3 tbsp coconut butter
  • 2 tbsp hazelnut butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

Chocolate Drizzle

  • 2 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
  • 2 tsp coconut butter
  • tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  • Place the almonds in a blender and puree until a coarse flour is formed.
  • Add to a large mixing bowl with the rest of the dry ingredients and vanilla essence. Give this mixture a quick stir with a large spoon to combine ingredients.
  • Add in the coconut butter, hazelnut butter and coconut oil and use your hands to mix these into the dry ingredients.
  • Give it a few minutes – you’ll find that the warmth of your hands starts to melt the oils and you’ll end up with a sticky dough.
  • (Alternatively, if you'd prefer a less labour-intensive method, simply melt the coconut butter and coconut oil on the stove on a very low heat before mixing in.)
  • Shape this dough into 6 or 7 balls and press them flat onto a baking sheet covered in baking parchment.
  • Place the tray in the freezer while you complete the next step.
  • For the chocolate drizzle, over the lowest stovetop heat possible in a small saucepan melt the coconut butter and coconut oil and add in the cacao/cocoa.
  • Stir until you have a runny chocolate mixture and there are no lumps left.
  • Remove the cookies from the freezer, and using a spoon drizzle the chocolate over them. (It gets messy but that’s what the baking parchment is for!)
  • Return the cookies to the freezer for another 5-10 minutes and voila – they’re ready to eat.

Notes

  • If you like a sweeter cookie, simply add in 1 tsp of maple syrup when you mix the nut butter/coconut oil/butter into the bowl. 
  • Store any uneaten cookies (ha!) in a container in the freezer – they will soften and melt if stored at room temperature.
