Makes

10 to 12 cookies

Prep time:

10 minutes

Cooking time:

10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 125g ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 25g organic whey protein
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 170°C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

2. Mix the ground almonds, spices, salt and baking powder together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the molasses, coconut oil and vanilla essence until thoroughly combined.

3. Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, until you’ve got a nice ball of dough. Grab a tablespoon of dough, roll into a ball with your hands and then press down with the palm of your hand to create a cookie shape on the greaseproof paper. Repeat until all the dough has been turned into cookies.

4. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Let them cool on the baking tray with 15 minutes, after which you can leave them to cool completely on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
