I love food. I love trying new things, and cooking. While working on crossing all t’s before the launch of our online jewellery store I thought it’s time for a snack.Today I prepared low carb, high protein nuts & seeds cookies. They are very tasty, nutritious, and easy to prepare – that’s why I love them so much! If you feel like trying them for yourself…
You will need:
- 400g (16oz) nuts – any nuts that you like, I used Brazilian nuts, almonds, walnuts, and pecans
- 90g (3oz) seeds – again, any that you like (sunflower, pumpkin, flax sesame), I used sunflower today
- 2tsp cinnamon
- 2 medium egg whites
- 2tbsp of honey ar agave nectar
- 20ml oil (sunflower or olive)
The recipe says to ‘grind the nuts and seeds until coarse’ I use steak hammer and a piece of cloth instead. If you choose to do the same, make sure you wrap your nuts in cloth carefully or you might end up with nuts all over your kitchen!
So my nuts after hammering look like this 🙂
Stir in the cinnamon. Combine with egg white and oil and mix until the mixture forms a sticky dough. Since my nuts pieces are quite chunky I am doing all of it by hand but if your dough is finer you can use a mixer. Form ping pong size balls and place them on a baking tray with greaseproof paper or baking mesh and flatten into cookie shapes.
Bake for 10 minutes in 180 Celsius degrees. Leave to cool for a few minutes on the baking tray. If you were using mesh you can leave them on it to cool completely. Otherwise it’s good to transfer them to a wire rack to cool so they stay crispy on the outside.
Hope you like them!
