‘HEART SHAPED’ COCONUT CHOCOLATE BISCUITS – makes 12
2/3 cup almond meal (or oat meal for those with nut allergies or for kids lunch boxes)
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (optional; sub for more almond meal)
1 and 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
1/2 cup rice malt syrup or honey
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
Heart shaped cookies (especially for Valentines Day): Press the mixture flat onto some baking paper. Add some coconut flour or flour alternative to stop it from sticking and make the mixture more firm. Use cookie cutters but beware it will be a tad fidley and require steady gentle hands. Once cut out, place on baking tray and bake for 15 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
