Healthy Almond Cookies



  1. Pre-heat your oven to 170 C (340 F).
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips).. i.e. ground almonds, cinnamon/cocoa powder (optional), baking powder & salt.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the wet ingredients.. i.e. melted coconut oil, honey (or alternative liquid sweetener) & vanilla.
  4. Combine the wet & dry ingredients together before stirring in the chopped chocolate chips or cacao nibs.
  5. Roll approximately 1 tbsp of the batter into a ball & place on a baking tray lined with baking paper (repeat until all of the mixture is used up.. I made 12 small cookies). Press the balls down lightly with the back of a wet spoon to make a cookie shape.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden.. when taken out of the oven the COOKIES WILL BE SOFT & CRUMBLY but they firm up after a few minutes once cool. Store in an air-tight container & enjoy guilt-free when a cookie craving hits - or freeze for a later date!


*Dark chocolate contains less added fat & sugar than milk or white chocolate & contains more antioxidants which keep us healthy! Cacao is the unprocessed version of cocoa and is a great source of antioxidants to keep us healthy.

These cookies make the perfect mid-meal snack (I’d suggest 1 to 2 as a serving) and are so satisfying. They taste and smell delicious!!

This recipes makes 12 cookies.
