weightloss, healthy recipe, fitness, clean eating, cookie recipeHello Beautiful People ❤

Bon Weekend to you All!

For anyone who reads my blog often, you will know how much of a Foodie I am. I genuinely have such an emotional attachment to delicious food. No I’m not exaggerating, I am not a dramatic person. Cue awkward silence..

Anyway…

I am always looking for healthy alternatives to the yummy food I crave. Lets face it, it’s just not possible to consistently eat fatty food and still feel good both physically and mentally. So without giving up the things I love; cakes, biscuits, chocolate and the likes, I am always testing out new recipes. Some work and some don’t, this one thankfully did.

Ladies & Gents I bring you the Double Chocolate Orange Cookies

Makes approx 13 cookies

Takes  30 mins to bake in total

What you Need:

70% Dark Chocolate Chips

25g Cacoa Powder

125g Wholemeal Spelt Flour

1.5 tbsp Chia Mix (It contains Linseed, Flaxseed & Chia and it can be bought in Aldi)

What You Do:

Mix the Flour, Chia Mix, Cacoa & Stevia in a large bowl

Add in the Egg, Milk, Soda Bicarbonate, Almond Butter & Agave Syrup – stir again

‘Zest’ the orange over the bowl & mix

I use an electric mixer to make sure there’s no lumps

Add in the Chocolate Chips and then I hand stir it so that they keep their crunch

Place on a baking tray & into the oven for approx 15 minutes

To Note: I baked the cookies in two lots as I find they cook better when there are small batches in the oven.

These chocolate orange cookies are soft with a bit of bite from the chocolate chips and are ideal for beating that chocolate craving. I have been eating mine with a cup of tea and my feet up – perfect combination if ever there was one.
