Tasty nutty cookies (gluten & sugar free)

January 12, 2015

As I promised earlier today to a cookie loving friend, I have a very easy and tasty recipe to share on my blog. So, here it is! All the ingredients were just laying there (in the fridge, pantry, fruit basket), impatiently waiting to be put into good use.

For 12 pieces I have used:easy nutty cookies

  • 1/2 cup mixed nuts cream (I used almond & hazelnut cream, but you can use any other pure nuts cream, no sugars or other stuff added)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • a pinch of baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • cocoa nibs (for inside the batter and also for decoration)

How to:

Preheat the oven at 160 degrees Celsius and start preparing the batter.

Mix all the ingredients (except for the cocoa nibs) with the aid of a food processor. If you don’t own one, this batter can, luckily enough, be made also by hand…or fork…as you prefer :)mixed nuts cream

After obtaining a sticky dough, add the cocoa nibs and blend them in.

Line a baking tray with parchment and divide the batter into about 12 equal sized cookies. Flatten them with your wet hand and add some more cocoa nibs for decoration.

Bake for 25 – 30 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius. Leave to cool down on the tray and serve with coffee or a glass of hot milk.

 

PS: The second picture is of the mixed nuts cream I have used for this recipe. As far as I know, similar creams can be found in all the healthy food store.
