Chocolate cookie bites

Chocolate cookie bites

Firm cookies are a favourite of mine, aahhhh heaven x  The remind me of the traditional cookies I grew up with, you know the ones that were filled with refined sugars and flours – not these little treats!

Don’t be deterred by the GF, DF NF header because these are super little cookies, especially for dipping or dunking in a coffee! I have to think more laterally when it comes to accomodating Nut allergens which are becoming more and more prevalent so that’s the reason behind the pepita butter. It’s easy to make – just the same as any nut butter and one I should put up on the blog! haha
