Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies

Macadamia & Cacao CookiesMy three year old daughter helped me to make these cookies, she is turning out to be a very good cookie dough roller, which is fantastic! When she bit into one of the baked cookies she said ‘yummy… but cookies are not healthy are they?’ It was quite hard to explain to her that these cookies are made from natural real food ingredients, I tried. She is totally driven by her taste buds & thought these tasted amazing!

This recipe make a huge batch of cookies. We made adults ones like pictured & also cut star shaped cookies for the kids to share at a birthday party. Needless to say that we came home with an empty plate & no one even knew that they were eating gluten, sugar & dairy free cookies!

1/4 cup almond meal
1/3 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons of cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda/bicarb soda
1 pinch of salt

1 tablespoon of water
1 egg
3 tablespoons of honey

DIRECTIONS
