The added potassium, magnesium, omega-3, saturated fats, vitamin E and calcium mean that they’re filling, delicious and high-alkaline.
They don’t take long to make, and they last for days and days if stored in an airtight container.

Alkaline Snack! Hazelnut Choc-Protein Cookies
90 grams hazelnut meal or almond meal (not almond flour) or a mix.
1/2 cup cacao chips
1 ripe banana
1/3 cup monkfruit powder
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1/2 cup plant based protein powder
2 tablespoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Optional chopped hazelnuts for topping
Preheat oven to 350F/180C, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Put the nut meal into a food processor and add the cacao chocolate chips and blend the chocolate and hazelnut meal together until combined and mealy.
Next, place the banana, monkfruit, and coconut oil in the food processor along with the chocolate nut blend.
Blend on high until a smooth thick batter is formed and then transfer to a large mixing bowl.
Add the protein powder, cacao powder, vanilla, and salt to the batter. Mix together with a rubber spatula.
Next, roll this dough into small balls and place it on the lined baking sheet, and bake in a ball shape. After 7-8 minutes, remove from the oven and gently press down with your hand or the back of an oiled spoon to flatten them out a little more and allow to cool.
These can freeze for 6-8weeks.
