When I was a kid I already liked baking cookies. I tried several cookie recipes with oatmeal and banana, but I didn’t find those ones ‘real’ cookies. They fell apart or they did not get crunchy. Somehow they never become the same as ‘real cookies’.

It is Friday and I feel like baking cookies. That is why I search for a recipe. I find a shortbread cookie recipe. I change the recipe into a healthy recipe and add some ingredients. The smell of the cookies is really delicious and the same counts for the flavor. I am very enthusiastic about these cookies. And actually I am also quite proud of the picture. In the course that I am currently attending I got some good tips to make nice pictures. And besides that I made a mood board with food photos that inspire me. Not only the settings but also the materials used.

100% organic  ingredients
​Ingredients
  • 50 grams coconut oil
  • 75 grams honey
  • 2 vanilla beans
  • 1 egg
  • 200 grams almond flour
  • 5 grams baking soda

​How to make it?

Preheat the oven on 180 degrees (356 Fahrenheit). In the meantime melt the coconut oil in a small pan on low heat fire. Clean the vanilla beans in the meantime, cut in half, fold open and remove the core with a knife. Add to the bowl.

Add the melted coconut oil together with the honey and the vanilla. Mix properly. If you have mixed it properly you can add the flour and the baking soda carefully into a nice dough. You can now make the cookies.

​You can make approximately 15 cookies with this amount of dough. Make piles and push them a bit flat. Don’t make the cookies to flat, because than you will have super flat cookies. Also don’t make them too high because they don’t get well on the inside and they are burned on the outside.

​Bake the cookies for 15 minutes in a preheated oven. Pay attention that the baking time may differ per oven. You can now enjoy these organic, gluten free cookies.
