Cookie

Brief Description

These are super biscuits! High in fiber and protein to help keep you full and satisfied but also fiber is really important for healthy bowel movement and protein is our building blocks for the body. 

We also don't want to raise insulin levels as this is a fat storage hormone so having low carb treats is a good way to 'get your fix' without raising the blood sugars and thus insulin in high amounts (like normal biscuits). These are also Low GI biscuits. 

Having the cacao nibs makes it feel like chocolate chips but really they are nutrient dense nibs that give you a good boost too as they have caffeine in them but also many antioxidants and important minerals like iron and magnesium.

I find best to use finely desiccated coconut. You can swap the Natvia for xylitol if you like or coconut sugar  (will higher sugar levels w coconut sugar) 

I also you unsalted peanut butter, I had crunchy but you could use smooth. If you don't like peanut butter, use almond or tahini. Or use the equivalent in portion with softened butter.

Directions

Pre heat oven to 180 and line a baking tray with baking paper

Add to a large bowl all dry ingredients, mix then add in softened butter/ peanut butter, water and vanilla essence. Blend well with a spoon. Mixture should bind together when you squish some in your hand. If not, add a little more water. 

Using a tablespoon of mixture, roll into little balls and then either leave as is or flatten with the palm of your hand into a cookie shape (try get quite thin). Place on tray. 

Bake for 15 minutes until browned, take out of oven and let cool completely before eating. They will come out soft but will harden when cooled :) 

Makes 10-12. I normally have 2 as a serving so around 100 calories.
