Almond & Fruit Cookies
Delicious almond & fruit cookies - enjoy guilt free (well almost!) with a hot cup of tea!
150g spelt flour
50g ground almonds
100g crushed almonds
75g coconut oil
80g dried apricots
2 1/2 tbs chia seeds
1 tbs baking powder
75g agave syrup (or honey)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 180'c and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Put the nuts in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin to break them up.
Sift the flour into a bowl and add crushed nuts, ground almonds, melted coconut oil, dried fruit, chia seeds, agave syrup, baking powder and cinnamon. Beat 1 egg in a separate bowl and slowly add into other ingredients. Once well combined, roll a small amount of the mixture into a ball using your hands and press onto a baking tray leaving a gap between each cookie as the mixture will spread.
Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown (watch them as they will burn easily). Leave to harden and cool.
They will keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
