Sometimes being on a healthy journey can be hard work, you know those times where if like me you have a massive sweet tooth you just crave something a little sweet and wholesome?! Well I was definitely having one of those days yesterday. In a bid to be healthy and stay on track with my goals I decided to knock up a batch of pretty yummy low carb, dairy free, grain free and gluten free but definitely not fun free cookies. They definitely turned out to be lovely chewy and flavourful and more importantly hit that sweet spot for me! 

Below is the recipe for these tasty treats, if you do manage to make them please come back and let me know how you found them.

 

INGREDIENTS

1.5 cups of almond meal

0.5 cup of raisins

2.5 tbsp melted coconut oil

1 tbsp cacao powder

2 tbsp coconut nectar / sugar

1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp almond essence

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground nutmeg

 

METHOD

Line a baking tray with baking paper

Preheat Oven to 180c 

Mix all the ingredients listed in one bowl

Spoon 1 tbsp portions onto the lined baking tray ( I got around 12 portions)

Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes or until golden brown

Allow to cool and then enjoy with a glass of nut mylk, hot chocolate or your favourite cup of tea!
