Maple Cookie Bites

Please take care to keep track of your macros and only eat what you know you should. This recipe contains ingredients that will increase your carb intake, but I have offered alternatives (that you SHOULD take) if following LCHF. If I’m baking for others, I will use dates and rice malt syrup (and sometimes honey). When I’m baking for myself, I leave these things out. These are treats … so please only enjoy them occasionally 🙂

  • 1½ cups almond meal
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut flour
  • ¼ tsp. Pink salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp. rice malt syrup (replace with stevia or xylitol for lower carb)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. maple extract
  • ½ cup pitted dates (optional – omit for lower carb)
  1. Place all ingredients in a high powered blender (be sure that your blender is OK with dates) and pulse to blend until it forms a dough.
  2. Check and scrape sides if necessary and blend until well combined.
  3. Line a baking tray with baking paper or use a baking sheet.
  4. Place little balls of dough onto tray. You can flatten into cookies or leave as balls.
  5. Bake at 180C for 7-10 minutes
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes
  • Add cacao nibs for a chocolatey crunch
  • Substitute the maple extract for any flavour you prefer
  • Add some desiccated coconut
