Choco-Nutty-licious Cookie Recipe

These delicious cookies taste like roasted hazelnuts with a side of dark chocolate. As a bonus, they are naturally gluten-free and made with low-glycemic coconut sugar instead of cane sugar.  Best of all, they taste amazing!

You need:
  • 1 cup of hazelnut butter (you can also use peanut butter, if you like)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup of organic coconut sugar (or cane sugar if preferred)
  • 1/2 cup or more of chopped dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips (for Organic and Fair Trade, try Camino's Bittersweet (71% cocoa solids) or Semi-Sweet (56%) Chocolate Chips or Cacao Barry 71.5% Organic couverture).
  • 1/2 cup of mini white chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped hazelnuts (optional, and you can also use almonds or pecans, if preferred)


Instructions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  2. Line a cookie pan with parchment paper.
  3. Mix cookies well by hand or with an electric hand mixer until smooth. 
  4. Toss in the chocolate and nuts and stir until evenly combined.
  5. Using a spoon, scoop out balls of cookie dough (about a tablespoon or more) and place on the cookie sheet, leave about 1" between cookies or more.
  6. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes on centre rack in the oven. Remove from oven when edges are starting to brown.
  7. Let cool and dig in! Or freeze in an airtight container and add to your holiday baking platters.
