Deliciously Decedent Almond and Dark Chocolate Gluten Free Cookies


This is a OMG situation, these biscuits are so delicious that you will find you will have to double this recipe otherwise you might find that the guests don't get a look in over the crew. 

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups of Almond Meal (Ground Almonds)

2 1/2 to 3 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil 

2 1/2 Tablespoons of Coconut Sugar either brown or blonde can use a light tasting honey instead of coconut sugar

1 teaspoon of Natural Vanilla Essence

60g Good Quality Dark Chocolate Buttons or other Dark Chocolate cut into 1cm pieces.
1 1/2 Tablespoon of Dutch Cocoa or Raw Cocao

2 teaspoons of water if cookie dough seems dry



Method

 Melt the coconut oil over a very low heat watching at all times as it is very flammable. Place almond meal, coconut sugar, vanilla, dark chocolate and cocoa into a bowl and mix.  Pour in oil and mix.

Using your hand, get small balls of dough and then squish them onto a lined baking tray and add a piece of chocolate onto the top.  Mine a looking a little rustic, I sure with practice a more perfect formed cookie will appear.

Bake at 130 - 150 degree Celius for 30 - 40 minutes or until done.  Check the cookies by eating one from the oven, since they are brown its hard to tell.
