Does anything say “I love you” more than some homemade love heart cookies? These are the perfect little gift for Valentine's Day or “just because”. And if you already have the nut butter and some chia jam these come together in no time!

Note that while these cookies will keep for up to five days in a sealed container, they will start to soften slightly after the first day. Alternatively, you can freeze them and pull a few out for a quick snack when your sweet tooth calls.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 160 °C/ 320 °F (fan assisted).

  2. Mix the egg, almond butter and sweetener together in a bowl with a fork (ie in a "mashing" motion) until well combined. If the cookie batter seems a bit too soft and tacky at this point, place in the fridge for 20 minutes or so to harden so that it’s easier to work with.

  7. Bake for 12-15 mins, then check. They are done when they are slightly browned on the bottom side (lift edge of one up gently to check).

  8. Allow to cool completely on the baking tray before transferring them to a container. Note that they will be really soft straight out of the oven so its important to allow them to cool first before handling.
