Grain free chocolate and cherry cookies

As its #Chocolateweek I made some very yummy chocolate and cherry cookies and thought I would share the recipe, these scrummy cookies are grain and gluten free.



Chocolate and Cherry cookies

1/4 cup of raw cacao powder ( I use Bon Pom )

2  3/4 cups of ground almonds

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1/2 cup melted coconut oil ( I always use lucybeecoconut )

1/2 cup raw honey or maple syrup

1 cup coarsely chopped dark chocolate , gluten free ( I use green & blacks )

1/2 cup glace cherries, chopped ( you can use up to 1 cup of glace cherries but I am trying to keep low sugar )


pre heat oven 180c

line a couple  baking sheets

Put ground almonds, salt, bicarb, and cacao powder in a bowl


add melted coconut oil and honey



mix well

fold in the chocolate pieces and chopped up cherries


use a tablespoon to spoon mixture on to the baking trays


Bake for 10-15 mins. they start to look dry on top and crack slightly.

watch carefully, mine caught in the final moments!

The second time I made these cookies they took 13 mins with fan oven


still tasted great

leave to cool on the baking trays for 20 mins. they firm up as they cool.


try not to eat them all in one sitting

Happy Baking
