HAZELNUT CHOCOLATE COOKIES 

Makes 16 cookies

Gluten free : Dairy Free (opt) : Vegetarian

1/2 cup (solid) coconut oil or butter, lightly softened ready to whisk

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1 free range egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 cup raw cacao powder

1 1/2 cups hazelnut meal

1/2 cup dark chocolate – I used 80%, chopped

1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped

 

Heat oven to 160C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. In a mixing bowl whisk together butter / coconut oil, sugar, egg, vanilla until creamy. Add baking powder, cacao, hazelnut meal and mix, then fold through the dark chocolate and hazelnuts. Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoon measures onto tray, roll, then press down lightly with your fingers. Bake 14 minutes (fan forced) and allow to cool on tray before eating. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week but let’s be honest they won’t last that long anyway!
