INGREDIENTS 

  • 1 cup almond meal or hazelnut meal

  1. Combine almond meal, raw cacao powder, shredded coconut, maple syrup and coconut oil in the food processor and process until well combined. 
  2. Line surface with baking paper and roll out the cookie mixture.

  5. Once set, chopped up into small pieces to be mixed through the vanilla ice-cream.
