Tuesdays are long, tiring days for me so I have just whipped up a batch of these bad boys to get me through!
To make about 24 small biscuit balls you will need:
260g Ground almonds
40g Dried apple
30g Dried cherries
5 tablespoons Coconut oil (melted)
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Himalayan rock salt
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla extract
4 tbsp Maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener such as agave or honey)
Preheat the oven to 170 C.
Put the dry ingredients in to a mixing bowl and combine thoroughly. Then chop the apple and cherries finely and add them in to the mixture. Add the coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix together. You should find the mixture will stick together when you squeeze it between your fingers.
Take tablespoon sized portions of the mixture and form in to a ball. Pop on a greased baking tray and flatten a little. Place in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes (start checking at 10 minutes). Remove when they are starting to brown. They will feel very soft when you take them from the oven but just leave them to cool on the tray and they will harden.
Enjoy with a nice cuppa!
