Hazelnut Goji Berry Cookies


Gluten Free / Low Fructose


These cookies are really simple to make in under 30 minutes

Dough:
1 cup hazelnuts
1 1/2 cups of almond flour/meal
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons coconut butter (or regular butter if you prefer), melted
2 1/2 tablespoons of water
2 tablespoons of dried goji berries

Glaze:
1 tablespoon coconut butter (or regular)
1 tablespoon of rice malt syrup (if not making for fructose intolerance you can use honey here)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Pre heat oven to 180 degrees
To make the dough, finely grind the hazelnuts in a food processor
In a bowl, combine the hazelnuts and the rest of the dough ingredients
The dough should be firm and a little crumbly due to the hazelnuts
Take small handfuls of mixture, roll into balls and press down flat on a baking tray covered with baking paper
Bake for 10-15 or until golden brown on the edges
To make the glaze, in a small saucepan heat the butter, rice syrup & cinnamon until it lightly bubbles.
Remove from heat and brush the glaze over each individual cookie
Return the cookies to the oven for another 1-3 minutes until the glaze is melted into the cookies
Let cool before serving
