The inspiration for these ‘clean’ chewy choc cookies was a flier I (Bec) found at my sister’s house from Lorna Jane’s recent ‘Move Nourish Believe’ campaign. I found the recipe online and read the comments (because they LOOKED yum), discovering that there were some comments about them being dry and crumbly. With a few tweaks, I created a Thermomix conversion which is lovely and dense, holds together well and is made in record time.
An important note about these chewy choc cookies is that they are NOT sweet. Well, not really. If you are living a fairly low-sugar lifestyle, then these will be perfect for you. If you are looking for a direct replacement for your Tim Tams… you’ll be pretty disappointed. I loved that they satisfied my chocolate craving with minimal sugar (and of the fructose-free variety!), while telling my brain that I was satisfied by including the good fats and fibre from the almonds, chia seeds and coconut oil.
They freeze well, so you can make them and (after they cool) store them in a ziplock bag in the freezer for lunches and snacks.
They were featured in Episode 41 of the podcast, so you can hear all about them there.
I hope you like them!Print
