Who doesn’t love cookies?? With Kaizen Living’s cacao powder I wanted to create an indulgent chocolatey treat – without being unhealthy or tasteless. Cue these delicious, simple to make gluten-free cookies, spiked with cacao nibs for extra richness and a cheeky addition of peanut butter (my favourite!). The ‘icing’ is optional but still pretty guilt-free, so enjoy these cookies without feeling bad – just try not to eat them all at once!
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 2-3 tbsp Kaizen Living cacao powder
- 2 tbsp nut butter – almond, peanut, cashew…I used Hognuts peanut butter
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 2 eggs, beaten
- ½ cup nut or hemp milk
- ½ cup natural sweetener
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp Kaizen Living Cacao Nibs
Cacao Icing: 2 tbsp melted coconut oil, 2 tbsp Sweet Freedom (or honey, agave syrup), 1-2 tbsp cacao powder. I also used a drizzle of Walden Farm’s calorie, fat and sugar free Caramel Syrup
- Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C and grease a baking tray.
- Put the dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together the coconut oil, eggs and vanilla and pour in along with the cacao nibs and peanut butter. Gradually add the milk to form a dough-like consistency that sticks together, but not too sticky.
- Roll out 8-10 balls, place on baking tray spaced out and flatten. Bake for 10-15 minutes – they will be soft but will firm up as they cool.
- Meanwhile, make the ‘icing’ by simply mixing the ingredients together and drizzling over the cookies, along with some caramel syrup too if you want!
