I can't begin to tell you how good these are.
You can't buy cookies as tasty as these - the minute you try one you'll be making them every week.
The cookies have no added sugars and are the perfect go to when you’re feeling the need for a sweet snack.
They are beyond delicious, rich tasting and filling.
Being made of REAL ingredients and no hideous inverted sugar syrups, hydrogenated fats or sweeteners and your body recognises what it is it’s eating too.
These wouldn't be suitable to make (or eat!) during a sugar detox, but once you're back in control of your sugar, they are a healthier sweet treat.
The sweetness comes from the dates which are high in fibre content, allowing for a longer, slower release of the natural sugars.
60g unsweetened cocoa powder
100g fresh dates (remove the stones)
40g rolled oats
30g desiccated coconut
30g ground almonds
1 tbsp cacao nibs or 60g unsweetened cocoa powder
3 egg whites
2tbsp coconut water (or normal water to loosen mixture if it clumps I the processor)
1 tbsp coconut oil
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees.
In a pan melt the coconut oil and set to one side.
In a food processor mix the the oats, ground almonds, dates, cocoa powder, cacoa nibs and the separated egg whites, whizz together.
When smooth remove the mixture and place in a mixing bowl.
Add the melted coconut oil and stir until combined.
Add the oats and coconut and stir in to the mix.
Line a baking tray with baking paper
Break off part of the mixture and form a ball, place it on the lined tray and flatten to form a cookie.
Continue to do this with the rest of the mixture.
Place in the over and bake for 5 minutes.
Remove from the over and turn each of the cookies over, and return to the over for another 5 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow them to cool on a wire tray.
