Easy peasy cookies

I always found baking to be too complicated but now that I have started doing it, it seems quite simple. I put in a few ingredients and I got a cookie! ;) This is a super simple recipe and perfect for baking beginners :)


125 gms self raising flour
60 gms coconut oil or coconut butter
70 gms organic cane sugar
1 & 1/2  tbsp 100% cocoa powder
pinch of salt
2-3 tbsp almond milk or milk of your choice


Preheat the oven at 170 C. 

Line a baking tray with grease-proof paper. Grease the sheet with some oil.

Cream the coconut oil and sugar together. Sift in the flour, salt and cocoa powder.

Combine well, adding the milk as required to form a soft dough. Roll the dough into walnut size balls and place on the grease-proof paper, leaving room for them to expand. Flatten them slightly and bake for 10-12 minutes. 

The cookies should be firm on the top. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool for further 5 minutes.

These cookies are crunchy on the outside yet slightly soft on the inside.
