But they are also vegan, grain-free and sugar-free (except in this case, for the jam) and they went to school in my kids lunch boxes as a Valentines treat. And there is a few left over for me.
There’s not really that much I want to say about them, except that sugar is not required for sweetness …and I love how simple they are.
Grain-Free Sweet Heart Jam Drops
150g almond meal
50 g honey / maple syrup
50 g coconut flour
100g coconut oil / butter
2 tsp vanilla essence
your favourite jam: sugar-free if possible.
Whizz everything except the jam together in the food processor until it is just combined.
Press mixture down on a non-stick surface and use a cookie cutter to make shapes. Before you lift the cutter, squish your thumb into the middle to make a shallow hole. Use a spatula to lift the shape on to your baking tray.
Spoon a little jam into each hole and bake at 150C until golden on top.
