If you make your own nut mylks like me, you may be left wondering what on earth to do with all the left over meal/pulp, again like me!
As hazelnut and cacao are 2 of my most favourite things I decided to combine them. The result? A yummy dark chocolate, sugar free, raw cookie! I am in Love! And they only take 5 minutes to prep.
1 cup hazelnut meal (dried/dehydrated) or ground hazelnuts
Date paste – dates blended with water (can be substituted for honey or any other liquid sweetener – I’ve personally not tried other liquid sweeteners but feel free to experiment and find your own flavours / level of sweetness).
3 tbs cacao powder
2 tbs cacao nibs
1 tbs dessicated coconut
Throw all ingredients into a food processor until combined.
Don’t over process it – avoid turning it into a paste. It should be soft and workable but not lumpy either.
Shape into balls, and flatten to shape into cookies.
Eat immediately for a squidgy cookie experience, or leave them to rest for a firmer feeling…and enjoy!
