From Batter to Cookie

Homemade Rustic Coconut Cookies

Dying for a nice cookie the other day I decided to bake these rustic delights. Rustic because they are not cut perfect but who cares when they tasted luscious. To complement these heavenly creations I mustered up a hot ginger cocoa made from coconut milk (1 cup coconut milk, ½ teaspoon ginger powder, 2 tablespoons organic cocoa powder, pinch of vanilla powder, 1 teaspoon rice syrup; heat in a saucepan).

The recipe is gluten-free and only uses a natural form of sugar, rice syrup. The coconut flour is rich in dietary fibre and protein. How could you resist?

Ingredients

1 cup Coconut Flour

½ cup Desiccated Coconut

1 teaspoon Cinnamon

1 teaspoon Ginger

½ teaspoon Cardamom

2 ½ Pecans, Almonds, Walnuts

1 tablespoon Chia Seeds

Pinch Vanilla Powder

Pinch Himalayan Rock Salt

¼ teaspoon Baking Soda

2 tablespoon Rice Syrup (you can adjust this to cater for your sweet buds)

¼ cup Coconut Oil

6 Free Range Eggs (this will moisten the batter up as coconut flour can be dry)

Method

Preheat the oven 180c.

Chop nuts, you can pop them in a bag and bash them with a rolling-pin or break them up with your hands.

In a large mixing bowl add all dry ingredients and combine.

In a separate bowl mix whisk eggs, oil, rice syrup and pour into the dry mixture.

Mix all ingredients. The batter should be thick and moist.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Scoop batter onto the tray. Smooth out the mixture with your spatula ½ inch thick. Place in the oven at 180c for  25-30 minutes until golden brown.

Remove grease proof paper, cool on a wire rack, cut into squares or triangles.

Eat Real, Great Feel!
