Choco-Coco cookies!

Tasty treat with lower GL and plenty of nutrients

coconut-chocolate cookies

The biscuits are a tasty in-between meals snack or can be a quick breakfast on those days when the time is tight – they are very nutritious, keep you full for long and are very nice with coffee.

They are rich in protein and healthy fats, and a great source of many mineral and vitamins (from the chocolate, almonds and coconut) as well as healthy flavonoids.┬áResearch has pointed out that chocolate helps lower blood pressure, regulates cholesterol, increase insulin sensitivity and has anti-inflammatory, neuro protective and neuro-enhancing properties – so, what’s not to like.

These cookies are also very easy and quick to make – here it is how:

Ingredients:
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of coconut oil, melted
2-3 tbs maple syrup, or 2 tbs xylitol
1 cup shredded coconut
2 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons flaked almonds

Mix all the ingredients. Divide into 12 dollops and flatten them on a baking tray lined with non- stick paper. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 170 degrees.
Enjoy!!

Let me know how you liked them.
