I promise I don’t only make treats and desserts…. but they really are rather fun to create! I am always looking to create healthy and delicious snack recipes, because who doesn’t love a quick and easy snack to go! and when it’s one that helps to balance blood glucose levels, curb sugar cravings and satisfies it’s even better!
This recipe contains nuts so they are more an after school treat than a school snack but I promise they are delicious and fun to make to its a perfect recipe to get the kids involved with. I have used Mayvers Choc Almond butter for this recipe (not sponsored just a slight love affair) but you can use any almond butter here – [ I'm sure any nut butter will work for this recipe but I've only played with almond. ]

I N G R E D I E N T S
1/4 cup coconut flour

Pinch of sea salt
1 block of high-quality dark chocolate, roughly chopped
M E T H O D
1. preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celcius
2. in a bowl whisk together almond butter, eggs, oil, maple syrup and milk. This should make a delicious paste.
3. once mixed add the dry ingredients (and a little cacao powder for extra chocolate if you prefer).
4. at this step, if the mixture is too dry (as every brand of coconut flour is different) you can add a splash of nut milk
5. fold half of the chopped chocolate into the mixture and using a spoon evenly portion the cookies onto a lined baking tray. You can do this with a spoon or with an ice-cream scoop.
6. decorate the cookies with the remaining chocolate and place into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until cooked.
7. rest to cool and enjoy with a delicious herbal tea!
