Coconut & Hazelnut Cookies

 coconut & hazelnut cookies

I created these Valentines-themed cookies for the amazing Doisy & Dam using their 74% dark coconut and lucuma chocolate. I love both dark chocolate and coconut so this bar was like chocolatey heaven and perfect for these cookies, I can’t wait to try their other dark chocolate flavours! I usually only eat unrefined sugar so don’t often eat cane sugar but when i do it’s in chocolate! Cane sugar is low FODMAP though so definitely not a problem in that respect! These little cookies are gluten free, vegan and low FODMAP.

Makes approximately 14 cookies


70g melted coconut oil

45ml maple syrup

100g gluten free oats

60g hazelnuts

50g buckwheat flour

25g cacao powder

2 tbsp desiccated coconut

70g Doisy & Dam coconut and lucuma chocolate

Optional toppings:

Desiccated coconut

Cacao nibs

Edible flowers to decorate
