Felt like a perfect delicate little cookie and it goes like this …
2 cups almond meal
½ cup dried pears, finely chopped
1 whole egg or ¼ cup egg white, whisked
¼ cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup, or another liquid sweetener you like
1 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
Some raw almonds
Pre-heat oven to 180ºC
In a large bowl mix the almond meal, dried pear and vanilla until combined
Mix in the melted coconut oil, whisked egg and maple syrup to end up with a slightly sticky cookie mixture
Line a tray with baking paper
Roll cookies into balls, whatever size you prefer, and place on the tray
Push a whole almond into the top of each one and bake for about 15 minutes until just golden
Allow to cool and enjoy with a fresh cup of tea and the sound of birds tweeting
The original recipe had dates … which I’m sure would be lovely too … or cranberries perhaps … easy either way!
with love, Sarah

Could you use fresh pear?
Hi Laura, maybe use less egg if the pears are fresh as they may be too wet, or bake for a little longer. Let me know how you go! Love, Sarah
These sound really lovely and quite unusual!
