Unfortunately I can’t defy the inevitable and rewind to the beginning of summer so I thought I would make the transition into winter a little easier with a comforting Paleo recipe.
Anyone who has been doing the Paleo diet would’ve dabbled in some baked goods whether it’s making some sweet treats or simply eating them. It’s no secret that the baked goods isles of the Paleo supermarket is uninspiring and lacking quality. A Paleo treat that not only has the caveman tick of approval but tastes like a real treat is a diamond in the rough and well worth spreading the word.
After tweaking ingredients, combining recipes and varying cooking times I have created my own version of the caveman Paleo cookies, which I now pass down to you. I call them, Paleo Nut Cookies.
From all (sober) reports they seem to be a crowd pleaser and they fill my pantry in those colder months. What I will say is don’t expect a crunchy cookie but more of a soft, home-style delight.
Paleo Nut Cookies Recipe:
1 cup of walnuts
½ cup of hazelnut meal
½ cup of almond meal
1/8 cup of honey
2 egg whites
¼ cup of sultana’s
½ shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 180 degrees (Celsius)/ 360 degrees (Fahrenheit)
Grind walnuts (in blender or crushing them with a rolling pin).
In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until frothy.
Mix all of the ingredients together, starting with the nuts, cinnamon, coconut and sultanas then adding the honey and egg whites last.
Drop the mixture by the tablespoon on an oiled baking dish or baking paper.
Bake for 15 minutes or less (judging by your own oven).
Happy baking Cavemen and Women- mind the oxymoron.
