Date Walnut Chia & Rosemary Cookies: with thanks from Cook Republic
1 1/2 cups wholewheat flour
1/4 cup almond meal
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup dates, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds pre soaked
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons shredded coconut
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup macadamia oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Pre-heat oven to 180C. Line a cookie tray with baking paper.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon. Using the palm of your hands, shape dough into 1cm thick and 5cm round cookies. Place on prepared tray leaving a space of at least 1cm between the cookies. Place the tray on the middle rack in your oven and bake for approximately 18-20 minutes until cookies are golden. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on the tray. These are crumbly but harden as they cool.
Store in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.
