Description

These fudgy chocolate cookies with a twist of citrus are a great grain free option for those following a low carbohydrate diet as they use xylitol. They can easily be adapted for a standard diet by replacing the xylitol with sugar.

These choc orange cookies came about because Bec was feeling selfish. She wanted to make a biscuit that she would LOVE. We are happy to report that the mission was successful.

These fudgey choc orange cookies are incredibly quick and easy to make with a Thermomix. Grind up the orange zest with the xylitol to create a beautiful aromatic sugar. Grind up the almonds into almond meal to create the bulk of the cookies. It’s that easy!

We discuss these yummy Thermomix choc orange cookies in Episode 111 of the podcast, where you will discover a little secret… Bec thinks this raw dough is seriously divine. Eek! Raw dough? Raw egg? Definitely not for the pregnant women… but oh boy, what an indulgence.
