Are you the type of person who loves cookies but sometimes feeling guilty when you eat too a lot? Cos I am! But need not to worry as I will be sharing a healthy-ish recipe so you can enjoy the cookies even if you eat it all in one sitting!

This is quick and easy and you can eat it in less than an hour!

All you need is 5 main ingredients.

Gluten-free flour - I bought mine from my local Trader Joe's but you can use any Gluten-free flour of your choice

Ground Almonds - I couldn't find ground almonds from any of my local stores so I bought a sliced ones and just put it in a food processor myself 😊

Tahini - this I also got from Trader Joe's (let's just say I bought a lot of stuff there LOL)

Maple Syrup - I got an organic maple syrup from Costco

Chocolate - I used a chocolate melting wafers (I love Ghirardelli!)

Don't take my word, give this a try and see for yourself!!

      Tahini is so fantastic you will eat it with a spoon out of the jar (: I love that stuff! It’s toasted, hulled sesame seed butter! It’s about the same nutritionally as peanut butter, many a little less protein but packed with antioxidants and goodness. It’s also high in good fats.
