Easter Spiced Paleo Cookies (GAPS, Grain & Gluten Free)



24 piece(s)

Cookie Dough

  • 150 g Desiccated Coconut
  • 150 g blanched almonds
  • 50 g Butter, or coconut oil (VEGAN)
  • 50 g honey, or to taste
  • 5 g vanilla
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 100 g Dried Fruit, raisins, diced apricot, dry apple, currants etc.
  • 50-100 g dark chocolate, chips or small pieces

Recipe's preparation

    Cookie Dough
  1. In your Thermomix bowl grind the almond and coconut for 20 secs./speed 10 to form a fine flour. 

  2. Add the butter, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Bring together by mixing for 5 secs./speed 6. 

  3. Add the egg and repeat 5 secs./speed 6. 

  4. Add the fruit and chocolate and bring together for 5-10 secs./counter-clockwise operation/speed 2

  5. Cookie Dough Logs
  6. Lay out a piece of cling film and spread half the dough along it. Then roll up the wrap with the dough in the middle and twist the ends by swining around or rolling on the bench to tighten your log and make it uniform. 

  7. Repeat with the other half and refrigirate both or freeze one and chill the other. 

  8. Baking your Cookies
  9. When ready to bake simply remove the cling wrap from your logs and slice the dough into rounds. 

  10. Bake on a lined baking sheet at 170'C for 20-30 minutes, taking care not to over bake as they will burn easily. 

  11. Cool on the tray for at least 10 minutes before trying to move them to a cooling rack as they are very delicate and break easily when hot. 

  12. Enjoy warm with milk or tea or cool completely and store in an airtight container. 

  13. They will be crunchy the day they are baked, like shortbread, however they will soften. If you want super crunchy cookies then dry them in a dehydrator for 12-24 hours after baking and store in an airtight container, they will keep their crunch.

You can of course flavour the base dough how ever you like or even leave it plain. Rolling them into logs makes it super easy to cut them out as they dough is very sticky, even once rested. If you cannot wait to reat them then press spoonfulls of dough onto the sheet and bake right away.

    These were great, though I only need to cook for 15mins before they started browing.  I need to exercise some self control when eating them though LOL
