Lottie Murphy’s Chewy Tahini and Raw Cacao Nib Cookies!
Hello! Welcome back! Have you had a smug weekend like me – all health, sun, sleep and exercise….Or are you feeling like I felt last Monday – full of bad food, booze and a headache?
If you’re anything like me, you’ll either be wanting to maintain your halo or start with a clean slate with a Monday of good intentions! If so, I totally recommend heading to Lottie Murphy’s website, which is packed with diet, exercise and lifestyle tips. She’s taught me Barre Pilates a couple of times and she has a a ridiculously toned bod and glows with health.
This is a gal who genuinely likes a green smoothie.
I recently saw her tweet a recipe for these cookies, and I went straight out and bought the ingredients. They’re really yummy, plus they’re gluten, dairy and processed sugar-free. They’re actually packed with protein and good fats, so they make a great pre or post-workout snack as well as being delicious for a sit-down and a cuppa.
Personally I always play around with recipes and I prefer to use agave or brown rice syrup, as I’m following an Ayurvedic diet plan which says you shouldn’t heat honey as it turns it toxic…Plus I like the benefits of raw honey too much!
I also use a bit less coconut flour, but go with Lottie’s recipe first time round to be safe. I truly recommend this recipe because it will:
a) Take 1 minute to prepare
b) Take 10 minutes to bake
c) Are absolutely deliciously chewy, tasty and healthy!
3 tablespoons tahini
3 tablespoons Whole Earth 3 nut peanut butter (or any nut butter)
1/3 cup pure raw honey (can use any honey)
1 cup coconut flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/3 cup cacao nibs
Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with baking parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl combine all the ingredients. The mixture will be quite crumbly. Mould into 12 balls and flatten slightly to make cookie shapes then place onto the baking parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes until slightly golden. Allow them to cool then enjoy with a cuppa!
