The easiest, most nourishing choc chip cookie ever

These really are the easiest, most nourishing choc chip cookie ever. They are also the most delicious!
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time25 mins
Course: Snack
Servings: 10 cookies

Ingredients

  • 150 g almond meal ( firmly packed cups)
  • 55 g coconut oil (¼ cup) melted if solid
  • 50-85 g rice malt syrup or honey (¼ cup approx.) taste the batter and alter the sweetness to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla -powder, extract or essence
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs -or dark chocolate chips, or both
  • 1 tbsp water (must be added or they go flat)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 150 ℃/300°F (fan-forced). It's preferable to use weight measurements, the recipe will need less adjusting if you do so.
  • In a mixing bowl or food processor, combine all of the ingredients above until just combined (Thermomix 5 seconds, speed 4). Scrape the sides to incorporate the bits around the edge. 
  • **The mixture should be thick and sticky (like in the video below so if it feels very wet, it's important to add more almond meal).
  • Roll tablespoons of the mix in your (wet) hands and place them onto a tray lined with baking paper.
  • Flatten slightly with the back of the fork. The cookies above have cacao nibs through them (I put a little piece of Green and Blacks 85% chocolate on top in this pic too).
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until starting to brown on top. The longer they cook, the crisper they become.
  • Allow to cool fully. They will firm up as they cool.

Store

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

Notes

Dairy-free

Just use cacao nibs and leave out the choc chips.

Low-fructose

Use the brown rice syrup and cacao nibs.

Coconut-free

Replace the coconut oil with macadamia nut oil.

Vegan

Choose rice malt syrup to sweeten and cacao nibs as choc-chips. 

Almond-free (aka Nutella choc-chip cookie)

Replace the almond meal with hazelnut meal.
