In this recipe our FORTIFY blend has been used. It is a variation of raw cacao with extra spice with soothing and warming flavours of Cacao, Tulsi and Nutmeg making these little beauties a great Immune Boosting treat for Winter.
Place the spelt and buckwheat flours, coconut sugar, natvia, Byron Bay Tea Company Fortify Tea, cacao powder, baking powder and baking soda into a sieve. Sift the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Stir the dry ingredients together. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine the 2 eggs and vanilla extract. Stir well to combine.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, add the roughly chopped macadamia nuts, chocolate chips, the liquid ingredients and the salt.
Using a spoon, mix all the ingredients together, using slow strokes to combine the dry ingredients into the liquid from the centre out. Be sure to include all of the ingredients at the sides. Continue to mix until a sticky batter is formed.
Line two baking trays with baking paper. Roll the cookie mixture into small balls and place on the baking trays. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 170°C.
After the 15 minute fridge-time, place the cookies in the oven for 13 minutes. The cookies will have flattened and become soft. Remove the tray that was closer to the top of the oven, set aside and allow the cookies to firm at room temperature. Place the other tray higher up in the oven. Bake this tray for an extra 2-3 minutes.
Remove from the oven, set aside and allow to firm.
These are the perfect cookie to dip into a cup of Byron Bay Fortify Tea or Peppermint Tea for extra freshness.
