I saw this recipe in one of the emails I get daily. The recipe sounded too good to be true, so I had to try it to see how it tasted with only one tsp sugar and two tsp of oil. If you eat is as a snack, it is fine but it was too dry to be fully enjoyed.

2 cups almond meal (you can make your own by finely grinding up raw almonds)
2 teaspoons coconut oil (softened)
1 teaspoon sweetener of choice (I used 1 tsp Maple syrup)
1 egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 fine Himalayan salt
1/4 chopped nuts
1/2 c dark chocolate chips (I used organic, 80% cacao chocolate chopped into bits)

Pre-heat the oven to 180C
In a large bowl, mix the almond meal, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together
In another bowl whisk the egg and coconut oil together with the vanilla extract and sweetener
Mix the wet and dry bowls until sticky and well combined
Gently fold in most of the nuts and chocolate chips ( sprinkle the rest on top of the cookies before they
are put in the oven)
Scoop out tablespoons of mixture and roll into balls – flatten slightly and place about 3cm apart on a
baking tray lined with a baking sheet
Press raw cookies gently with a fork, then sprinkle leftover chocolate chips and nuts)
Cook at 180C for approximately 10 minutes (for softer cookies, cook for less time)
