Sticky Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sticky Chocolate Chip Cookies

Having just returned from an absolutely gorgeous holiday in Ibiza I returned to an empty fridge and a very sweet tooth! I needed to make something quick, simple and delicious to satisfy my sweet tooth with only limited ingredients. Then I remembered the cookies I tried from an Instagram page (EverydaySimpleHealth) and thought I would change the recipe slightly to adapt to my taste. All these ingredients are part of my store cupboard essentials so in 10 minutes I was able to construct these beauts with no trip to the shops and keep me happy 🙂

These are ideal for a mid afternoon snack with a cup of tea/ coffee ! Each ingredients is full of goodness and the cookies as a whole provide the sweetness to perk you back up during that afternoon slump. Cacao has endless health benefits including being full of essential minerals, B vitamins, antioxidants, fibre, protein and monounsaturated fat. It helps improve blood circulation, lowering blood pressure, improves digestion and can promote cardiovascular health and function! See, RAW chocolate is good for you!! Check out the recipe below and try for yourselves 🙂

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Cup Pitted Dates
  • 1 Cup Oats
  • 1 Tbsp. Cacao nibs
  • 1 Tbsp. Raw Cacao Powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Ground Almonds
  • 1/2 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
  • Cinnamon

METHOD:

  1. Chop the dates and place them in some water to let soak for 10 minutes
  2. Whilst soaking dates place oats in blender and blitz the oats for a few seconds to make a powder
  3. Put all dry ingredients into the blender with the blitzed oats then draining off the water from the dates, add the dates into the blender
  4. Blend all together to form the sticky cookies
  5. Form into 6-7 cookies and refrigerate until firmed up. (Make at night then leave overnight is ideal!)

Enjoy the deliciousness and goodness 🙂
