Written By Gracie 

Ingredients: (Makes 6)

  • 50g x Ground almonds
  • 45g x Macadamia nuts
  • 10g x Chia seeds
  • 70g x Dark chocolate (I used Green&Blacks 70%)
  • 10g x Rice protein powder
  • 2 x Tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1/2 x Tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 x Tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt

Directions:

1) Turn the oven on to 180 fan

2) Get your macadamia nuts and crush them up (preferably with a blender so the become ground) leaving some as lumps so you get the nice textures in the cookie.

3) Melt the dark chocolate

3) Pour all ingredients into a bowl and mix until everything has blender

4) Separate the mix into 6 balls, then squash each ball into a cookie shape and place on a baking tray that’s been covered with baking parchment. Use the back of a fork to press them down if it helps you.

5) Bake for 10-12 minutes, keeping an eye on them so they don’t burn.

6) Allow them to cool on a cooling rack then enjoy! 🙂
