  3. Place all the other ingredients, excluding the flaked almonds and cacao nibs into the food processor and blend for a couple of minutes until the mixture is smooth
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the large mixing bowl and add the cacao nibs and ½ the flaked almonds and mix together, using your hands to make sure everything is well combined
  5. Take a small handful of the mixture, press it into a ball and squeeze it between your palms to flatten
  6. Place your cookie on to a baking tray lined with baking paper or greased with coconut oil and press down once more with your palm
  7. If using a cookie cutter like me – Then press your cookie cutter into your flattened cookie mixture, remove excess dough from the edges and add to the rest of the mixture still in the bowl
  8. Continue until you have used all of the dough and then place the tray in the oven
  9. Cook the cookies for 15-20 mins or until lightly golden
