Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C (180C fan) and line 1-2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Mix the ground almonds, coconut sugar, cacao powder and bicarbonate of soda together in a bowl.
  3. Melt the coconut oil and peanut butter together in a saucepan over a low heat, stirring until combined.
  4. Once the chia seeds have formed a gel-like consistency, add them to the dry ingredients along with the almond milk and the peanut butter and coconut oil mixture.
  5. Mix everything together and then stir in the chopped chocolate.
  6. Mould small handfuls of the mixture into ball-shapes and press down on to the baking tray to flatten slightly. If you’re not baking your cookies, once they’re formed, transfer them to a sealed container and store in the fridge.
  7. If baking the cookies, place them into the oven for 8 minutes until slightly crunchy on the outside but still soft. Leave them to cool slightly and enjoy.
