Maple & Choc Syrup Cookies

Nothing beats a cookie and coffee for that afternoon slump, but if you do reach for the average store bought you will get a big energy burst followed by and even worse slump and again the craving starts, this makes sticking to your diet all that more difficult and well it can get down right boring.
But never fear I have been on the hunt and have found something that should satisfy the craving but keep the insulin from spiking
There are so few ingredients you are probably going to wonder if the will work at all, trust me they are great, if you happen to have any store bought cookies lurking in the cupboard, go read the ingredients, I bet you have a hard time pronouncing them let alone knowing what they are, if this is the case might be time to dump them and give these crumbly concoctions a try

Heres what you are going to need

2 Cup Almond Meal
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup (the real stuff, not the imitation)
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Nutmeg
1/2 Tsp Salt
100g Dark Choc Chips

I oiled under the baking paper to make extra sure they didn't stick, this may have been over kill....

PreHeat oven to 150C
Line a cookie tray with baking paper
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until well combined, it might look a bit dry at first
and make 2 Inch balls (just squish the mixture in your hands)
flatten out on the tray with a fork a little
Bake in the Oven for 10-12 mins

Next time I cook them I might turn them carefully halfway thru to brown them a bit more on top
but they turned out so well, the taste tester was greatly impressed ;)
