Five Ingredient Cookies

To be honest pictures don’t really do these little beauties justice. They look pretty standard here, but trust me these are anything but boring. They’re the easiest, most deliciously chewy cookies made of just five ingredients: ground almonds, medjool dates, almond milk, dark chocolate chips (or raisins) and chia seeds. It’s magic! I was looking at our old recipe for chocolate chia cookies and felt like it really needed a revamp, so we had a play around in the kitchen and came up with these, which are definitely a lot better and I couldn’t recommend them more. Let us know if you try them and how you get on…


Serves: 12

Prep: 20M

Total: 20M

Difficulty: easy


180g ground almonds, 1 1/2 cups

12 medjool dates, 1 cup

1 tablespoon chia seeds

3 tablespoons almond milk

Handful of dark chocolate chips or raisins, about 40g


Preheat your oven to 180c, fan setting.

Simply place all of your ingredients (apart from your dark chocolate chips or raisins) in a food processor and whizz until it forms a cookie dough. Once mixed, add your dark chocolate chips or raisins and give it another very quick whizz to mix it all together.

Use a tablespoon to take a scoop of the mixture out one at a time, rolling them into balls and placing them on a lined baking sheet. Once you have about 12 round balls, squish them down to form cookie shapes.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden. Enjoy!
