Who doesn't love a cookie?

These cacao and almond cookies are vegan, and paleo-friendly. Plus, sweetened with erythritol they're also low carb and keto.

Using almond flour rather than wheat flour or normal gluten-free flour blends, you need to keep an eye on the baking time, as it can be quite sudden.

Makes 6 large cookies

Ingredients

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 170c/gas mark 3 and line a large baking sheet with a silicone mat or greaseproof paper
    2. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, melted coconut oil, erythritol, sea salt, bicarb, vinegar and vanilla extract. Fold in the raw cacao nibs gently at the last stage. The dough should be moist enough to form the cookie in your hand so if it is on the dry side, add a little more melted coconut oil

    3. Drop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto the baking sheet, then use your hands to gently flatten and shape them. (They won't spread a lot with baking.) Get your fingers wet with water to help prevent sticking while you work with the dough
    4. Bake in the middle shelf of your oven until the cookies are firm to the touch around the edges, about 10-20 minutes or until golden brown round the edges especially (depending on your oven, err on the shorter time and keep an eye on them, as almond flour can brown quite quickly)
    5. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the pan for at least 10 minutes before attempting to remove them. They will be soft when you take them and out firm up as they cool

    These cookies can be stored at room temperature for up to 3 days, but they will have the best shelf life and texture when stored in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

    Enjoy xx
