Inferno Cookies!

Inferno Cookies!

This idea came about on our trip to New Zealand, when we went to a place called Craters of the Moon (read more about that here) and we thought, wouldn’t it be cool to make cookies that kind of look like volcanos with lava coming out of them and make them a bit spicy and call them Inferno Cookies! Yeah it would! So these babies were born in our heads back then, and we just made them into a reality the other day.

These cookies were great – they weren’t too spicy. To be honest, I reckon you could up the spice a little bit if you wanted (or omit it all together!)

Inferno Cookies!

These are so easy to make and better yet – they are gluten free! I used almond flour for the base. We also used coconut sugar as a sweetener as we (sometimes) try to move away from more refined sugars. We used grated dark chocolate to give them an extra chocolatey flavour.  For the middle we used raspberry jam – however strawberry would be great too – or any jam you have on hand would work!
