Easy Vegan Cacao Nib Cookies

Can you hear the collective sigh of any Australian mum’s as their little ones settle into the second week of the new school year? I sent my kids off to school with a few Vegan Cacao Nib Cookies for a snack.

I was one of those mums who eased into the school routine. This year I have set myself a goal, no packaged food will go into my children’s lunchbox, nor will it be consumed as an after school “treat.”

Homemade only treats isn’t a new idea for me, as we tend to avoid over-processed and packaged foods anyway. I have learned that preparation is the key to success, last year I only lapsed when things became busy or disorganized.

I have set about finding tasty treats for the family, that still serve a nutritional purpose. I have always had a problem with “empty” calories, so whilst I am not anti-sugar, dairy, gluten, I have designed these cookies to include flavour, protein, fibre and a bit of calcium.

If your school is nut free this won’t be a suitable recipe due to the almonds and peanuts. Thankfully my kiddies school doesn’t have a nut free policy.
