Serving      Preptime: 15 minutes

Baking time: 30 minutes     Total time: 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 5,5 dl / 2 1/3 cup flour of choice*
  • 4-6 tbsp cocoa (depending on how chocolately you like it)
  • 2 tbsp arrow-root
  • 1/2 tbsp baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 6 tbsp honey or other liquid sweetener of choice
  • 4-6 tbsp super strong espresso
  • 1/2 vanilla essence or extract
  • 1 dl / 1/2 cup chopped nuts of choice
  • 1 dl / 1/2 cup 50g roughly chopped chocolate or chocolate chips

Directions

  1. In a food processor, mix the almond flour, cocoa powder, arrowroot powder, salt, and baking soda.
  2. Add in the honey, coffee and vanilla until the dough forms a ball.
  3. Remove dough from food processor and work in chocolate chips and nuts with your hands.
  4. Form dough into 2 logs on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, gently pat down and shape the logs.
  5. Bake at 175ºC / 325°F for 15 minutes in the bottom of the oven, then remove from oven and cool for around 15 minute.
  6. Cut the logs into 2 cm / 3/4 inch slices on the diagonal with a very sharp knife
  7. Spread slices out on a baking sheet and bake at 150C / 300°F for 12-15 minutes
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool, set, and become crispy

*I used almond flour but other flours work too, if you use a flour containing gluten than you can skip the arrowroot! Remember to use a flour that suites flavour wise and this purpose.
