One of the best cravings I’ve ever satisfied with these delicious cookies! I shared the recipe on social media and it appears many of you felt the same, so it was clear I needed to include them on the blog. Not only are they gluten-free and refined sugar-free, they’re also vegan – you’d never know something so decadent could also be packed with good-for-you ingredients. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • ½ cup almond meal
  • ⅓ cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 heaped tbsp peanut butter
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup or rice malt syrup
  • ¼ tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of vanilla powder
  • ⅓ cup water
  • Handful Brazil nuts
  • A few drops stevia (optional)
  • Additional ingredients for cookie topping: 5 brazil nuts/cashews + 2 tbsp desiccated coconut + 1-2 tbsp water.
Instructions
  1. Pulse ingredients in the food processor until a sticky dough forms.
  2. Roll into balls, place on a baking sheet and use a fork to pat them down.
  3. Topping: blend 5 Brazil nuts or cashews, 2-3 tbsp desiccated coconut and a 1 tbsp of water in the food processor, than sprinkle over the cookies.
  4. Bake at 160 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
  5. They will come out moist and gooey (how I like it!) but cook for longer for a more crunchy texture.
