Recipe: Vegan, Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Spiced Cookies

These soft and chewy cookies are one of my favourites! I found a recipe for these a couple years ago and never remembered the original recipe so I kept on changing it and adding my own tweaks to make it the way I like it! It’s pretty much a health, vegan and gluten-free almond cookie with loads of spices and chocolate chips! Even Jonas, who isn’t a vegan loves these and I made an entire batch of these for him on Valentines day! 🙂 I hope you enjoy them!

1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
Procedures:
1. Mash the ripe banana and set aside.
2. On low heat, melt the coconut oil, add the syrup, all the spices and salt. Keep on a low heat and stir until everything is nicely combined.
