Healthy Afghan Cookies

A traditional New Zealand biscuit, these Afghan Cookies are pure chocolatey goodness. Usually laden with refined sugars, we’ve taken that all out, making this the healthiest Afghan Cookie you’ll ever eat. Not just that, but they’re vegan and we’ve made this super easy to put together with just 5 ingredients! There’s almost no excuse to whip these up!

Topped with a delicious walnut, these Afghan Cookies are a delight to eat and are a great simple treat to bake up for guests. What are you waiting for?


Serves: 12

Prep time: 40 mins

  • 125g sugar-free almond butter

  1.  Using a fork, mix the almond butter and Natvia until thoroughly combined.
  2. Place the walnuts in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until they form a fine meal. Add to the bowl of almond butter and Natvia. Sift over raw cacao powder and stir until thoroughly combined. Roll into tablespoon sized balls and place on a greaseproof paper lined baking tray. Press down with a fork to flatten. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3.  Bake at 180C for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and stand for 1 minute. Remove to a wire rack, above a sheet of baking paper to cool.
  4.  Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Spoon a small amount on top of each cookie. Press a walnut firmly into the chocolate of each cookie and stand for 30 minutes or until set.
