Chocolate Gingerbread

Raw cacao has more than 4 times the antioxidants found in green tea and more magnesium than any other whole food. Ginger is great for helping relieve gastrointestinal distress, has antioxidant effects, an ability to inhibit the formation of inflammatory compounds, and direct anti-inflammatory effects making it great for people with arthritis and joint pain.

1 1/2 cups almond meal
1 cup flaxseed meal
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup raw cacao
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 cup honey, melted
1/2 cup nut butter
1 egg
1 tbs Cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch rock salt
3 tbs ground ginger
1 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp cloves

Preheat oven to 160C. Line some oven trays with baking paper. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix well until combined. Roll into cookie shapes and place on tray. These cookies will stay the shape you make them, they won’t spread. Bake for 20-30 mins or until just browning on the outside.

    These appetizing cookies look just amazing & very tast too! Could I use raw cacao nibs instead of the raw cacao powder? How much should I use? xxx

  2. Knock yourself out Sophie33, cacao nibs is a splendid idea! I’d probably go with 1/2 cup of them too. Let me know how they go and post a pic on my Facebook so I can check these beauties out!
