Almond white chocolate, coconut biscuits

070b3756-552e-426f-9976-6ef4d2cf731d

A dense coconut biscuit with a sweet hint with the white chocolate chunks. If you are after a vegan cookie, all the ingredients are actually vegan – apart from the white chocolate chunks so either swap normal white chocolate out for vegan choc-chips, or just take them out! The white chocolate chunks does make the cookies a lot sweeter though, but I did taste them without and still tastes delicious.  Also, if you don’t require gluten free, normal flour is a good replacement for buckwheat flour – but keep the almond meal as this adds to the nutty & dense flavour of the biscuit!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Almond flour
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 drops of vanilla essence/vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 C flaked/slivered almonds
  • 1/2 C desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 C white choc chips/chunks
  • 1 T coconut oil, melted
  • 1 T almond milk

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees c
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix (apart from baking powder)
  3. Melt the coconut oil over the stove or in the microwave for ~20 seconds or until melted
  4. Add the coconut oil, baking powder and almond milk to the dry ingredients and stir until mixture is moist and forming smaller balls when mixing
  5. Using your hands, scoop out small amounts of mixture and compress between hands to make balls
  6. Place on a greased oven tray or baking paper and press the balls down slightly with the back of a spoon or hands
  7. Place in the heated oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown
