INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Cup + 2 Tbsp Coconut sugar divided
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut oil melted
  • 2 Tbsp + 2 tsp Molasses
  • 1 Egg white
  • 1 1/2 Cups Amoretti Hazelnut flour *Read notes! 140g
  • 5 Tbsp Coconut flour 30g
  • 1 3/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp Ground coffee
  • 2 tsp Ground ginger
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt

For dipping:

  • 3 Oz Dark chocolate melted
  • 1/4 Cup Toasted hazelnuts finely chopped

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat.
  2. In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat together 1 cup of the coconut sugar (reserving the rest for later,) the coconut oil, molasses and egg white until well combined.
  3. Add in the hazelnut flour, coconut flour, baking soda, coffee, ginger, cinnamon and salt and stir until well mixed.
  4. Spread the remaining 2 Tbsp of coconut sugar into a shallow plate. Roll the dough into 1 Tbsp balls, then roll around in the coconut sugar.
  5. Place the cookie dough ball onto the prepared cookie sheet and gently press out to about 1/2 inch thick. **
  6. Bake the until the cookies are just lightly brown on the edges, about 17 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let them cool on the pan for 5 minutes. Then transfer them to a cookie sheet to cool completely. Note that your cookies will feel really soft just out of the oven, but they firm up a lot once cooled!
  7. Once cooled, dunk half of the front-side of each cookie (I don’t put any chocolate on the back side of cookie) in the melted chocolate and press the end in the toasted hazelnuts. ***
  8. Let the chocolate harden and DEVOUR!
