Waffle cookies (for 10 cookies):

Preparation time: 20 minutes – Cooking time: 15 minutes


50g (⅓ cup) of dark chocolate

60g (½ cup) of almond butter

60g (⅓ cup) of sugar

40ml (2 tablespoons) of olive oil

60ml (¼ cup) of almond or hazelnut milk

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Incorporate the almond butter, olive oil, and milk and mix vigorously to obtain a homogenous and lump-free paste. Add the chocolate chips.
  2. Preheat your waffle iron, grease with melted butter or olive oil. Form balls with your paste, and take care to insert the chocolate chips into the middle of the balls. “Bake” the waffle cookies in the waffle iron.
