Tasty treat with lower GL and plenty of nutrients
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. Research 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:
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.
