Biscuits are a wonderful snack food to have in the cupboard, for as long as they last anyway. The problem is all that sugar is not good for the kids, or the waistline. So let Well Naturally help you make some better-for-you snacks using their brand new Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Melts.
This recipe was created by Tanya Bartolini for Well Naturally and it looks delicious, perhaps a break from Anzacs for me for a while so I can give these a go.
Well Naturally Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Melts are made from 70% cocoa and naturally sweetened with stevia.
• 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• 60g coconut oil
• 120g rolled oats
• 60g almond meal
• 1 tsp baking powder
• ½ tsp ground cinnamon
• ½ tsp salt
• 100g flaked almonds
• 20g natural popcorn
• 150g dark chocolate melts
Preheat a fan forced oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl combine the wet ingredients.
In a second bowl combine all of the dry ingredients except for the chocolate, almond flakes and popcorn.
Transfer the dry ingredients and combine with the wet ingredients, ensuring you combine well with a wooden spoon.
Toss in the chocolate pieces and almond flakes and stir well to combine.
Roll about a tablespoon of the mixture in your hands to create a ball, place onto the lined baking tray and continue until you have rolled all of the mixture.
Transfer to the preheated oven and cook for 14 minutes.
The cookies will be a light brown colour on top and a darker colour on the bottom.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews. Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS!
