Clove, Pecan and Chocolate Chip Cookies
These little beauties are so tasty, as a special treat if you need a little sweetness on a tough day. Full of whole food goodness, they are the perfect partner to a steaming mug of green tea.
2 ½ cup ground almonds
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup rapeseed oil
½ cup cold pressed honey (this can be reduced slightly depending on your preference)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
50 grams dark chocolate
½ cup pecans
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a large bowl, combine almond flour, salt and baking soda, cloves and cinnamon.
In a medium bowl combine rapeseed oil, honey and vanilla. Crush chocolate and pecans into small chunks with a pestle and mortar. Stir wet ingredients into the almond flour mixture until thoroughly combined.
Fold in chocolate and pecans.
Spoon dough 1 tablespoon at a time onto a lined baking sheet, pressing down with the palm of your hand to flatten.
Bake at 160°c for 7 to 10 minutes, until lightly golden.
Cool cookies on the baking sheets for 20 minutes, then serve
