Walnut cinnamon cookies

Walnut cinnamon cookies 

Delightfully powerful cinnamon and crispy walnuts – what a perfect combination!

Ingredients

  • 75g dried apricots
  • ¼ cup (60ml) hot water
  • 15g pistachios
  • 40g walnuts
  • 25g quinoa flakes or ground almonds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Soak the apricots in the hot water for 10 minutes, then discard the water
  2. Using the chopper attachment of a hand blender, or a food processor, grind the pistachios until they resemble breadcrumbs. Add the softened apricots and blend until smooth
  3. Add the walnuts, quinoa flakes and cinnamon, and blend again. The mixture does not need to be smooth – a few small pieces are OK
  4. Roll out the dough between two sheets of baking paper and then, using a glass, cup or cookie cutter, cut out 10 small cookies. Place on a baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes until the edges are browned
  5. Cool for 5 minutes then remove from the tray – if you leave them, they may stick. Allow to cool for another 10 minutes before eating.
