Grain-free, sugar-free, protein-packed, paleo, keto-friendly, delicious fudgy goodness!
I promise you guys, these cookies will not disappoint! I actually had a couple for breakfast this morning with my coffee because they pack a protein punch & are filled with healthy fats, so they keep me full for SO long! They make for the perfect snack to pack for school or work too!
I used roasted hazelnuts, which I then let cool & peeled off the skin & pulsed in my Vitamix to make a hazelnut ‘flour’. I will give you other recommendations below if you don’t have these on hand. Just keep in mind, that this ingredient is what gives it the ‘Nutella’ flavour. The cookies will be just as delicious with an alternative nut flour, but I am a huge hazelnut fan, so I am all about them in this recipe.
This vegan & sugar-free caramel sauce will change your life!
A little note about this caramel sauce, it is absolutely delicious! I always have a batch in my fridge & will heat up a bit to put over everything! Coconut ice cream, over some yogurt, drizzled on top of fruit or paleo pancakes! The options are endless! It hardens up when stored in the fridge, which is normal for coconut based recipes, & can be easily melted down when you need some. Perfect for all the vegans out there, & of course free of sugar, so it will not raise your blood glucose or spike that insulin!
I can’t wait any longer so let’s get right into it!
