Walnut Cacao Nib Cookies
Another wholesome recipe shared by Nutritionist Natalie Harms. These gluten free cookies are the perfect compliment to a cup of tea. They have a texture similar to shortbread and the cacao nibs give a delicious hint of chocolate.
Chocolate cookies, but with a healthy twist!

pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup raw cacao nibs (chocolate nibs)
