Almond Cherry Choc Cookies

These cookies are delicious. They are flour less so great for people that may be intolerant to gluten and also a little lower carb than regular cookies. They aren't low calorie though! The below recipe makes about 12 cookies and each cookie works out to be around 240 calories, 7g protein, 20g carbs and 15g fat. They are best savoured one a time!

2 cups of almonds
150g glace cherries
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
1 egg
100g organic dark chocolate
1/2 cup Splenda
1/2 cup Caster Sugar or Brown Sugar

Roast almonds in oven and remove to let cool. Place roasted almonds and vanilla paste in a food processor and process until mixture has formed a butter like consistency. Remove almond butter from food processor and in a bowl add sugar, splenda and the egg. Stir mixture well with a spoon. Roughly chop the chocolate and glace cherries and stir into the doughy mixture.

Divide the dough into ping pong ball size balls and slightly flatten on a baking sheet. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 10-15 minutes.
