Makes: 24

Ingredients:

1c. macadamia nuts
1/3c. coconut flour
1/3c. almond meal
1 egg
60g. coconut oil
2 tbs. good-quality cocoa powder
2 tbs. agave syrup
1/4tsp. baking powder
pinch salt
100g. 70% chocolate, for dipping

Method:

1. Roast macadamias at 180C for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden. Chop roughly. Sift dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and add the chopped nuts.

2. Gently melt coconut oil and mix into the dry ingredients. Add the egg. Roll dough into a log and chill in fridge for 30min, or until firm.

3. Slice dough into inch-thick rounds and place on a baking tray. Bake at 160C for 10min. When cooled, half-dip in melted chocolate and place on a clean piece of baking paper to set. Makes 24.

As with all baking, the quality of the product is in the ingredients. These cookies really shine with high-quality cocoa powder, and of course free-range or organic eggs.
