Gluten-free recipe for Tahini and Almond Shortbread

1/3 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
1/3 cup raw almonds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 heaped tbsp hulled tahini
2 tbsp stevia powder or maple syrup
A big pinch of celtic sea salt
2 dates, pitted (optional)
1/4 cup warm water
Extra almonds and cinnamon to dust

How to
Preheat oven to 180°.

Add all ingredients into a food processor and process until it comes together – the mixture should be sticky enough to hold its shape when pressed. If it’s too dry, try adding a touch more water.

Spoon 1 tbsp of mixture onto a lined baking tray and shape into shortbread. Top with an almond. Repeat with remaining mixture.

Bake for 15-17 minutes until golden around the edges.

Drizzle with extra tahini and sprinkle cinnamon.
