Anyway, the cookies. The are fairly low in carbs as they are made with almond flour instead of wheat or oats. They are not entirely low carb as I use honey for sweetness (by all means, use stevia or something if you are so inclined) and a little bit of dark chocolate for flavour. I think this is neglible, I really enjoy something sweet with my afternoon coffee so surely these are better than cadbury chocolate fingers. Each to their own!
This is my adaptation of this recipe.
Chocolate and almond cookies
25 grams or butter
100 grams ground almonds
a handfull of hazelnuts
2 tbs honey (or more or less depending on how sweet you want your cookies)
a couple of squares of dark chocolate
Lightly whisk the egg. Melt the butter. Roughly chop the hazelnuts and the dark chocolate. Mix everything together to form a sticky dough. Roll little balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, before squashing them down with your hand. Bake for 12-15 minutes at gas mark 4 (175 degrees celcius)
They won't be crispy like regular cookies, but they will chewy and yummy!
