Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

Chestnuts, as any nut, go well with chocolate.

As the chestnut has a rather mild taste, chocolate can easily overpower the chestnut flavour. The more chocolate you add, the more brownie like cookie you’ll get.

Depending on your personal taste, you might want to add sweetness in relation to the chocolate powder used. The starch in the chestnut will also turn sugary the longer you chew.

Chestnut gives the chocolate flavour depth.

Chocolate Chestnut Crumble Cookies

200g chestnut flour

50g salted butter

50g coconut oil

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon cinnamon powder

1 vanilla pod

2 tablespoons 100% chocolate powder

1 pinch salt

 

For a vegan version you can of course just simply add chocolate powder to the vegan recipe for the Chestnut Crumble Cookies. 🙂

 

Somehow the chocolate requires more moisture to make it real nom nom yummy.

The chestnuts are so starchy, they absorb all moisture, so keep the cookies in an airtight container to avoid drying out.

 

The good news is that with the high carbs low fat ratio, chestnuts are low in calories.

In addition, even with the high starch content, chestnuts are low in FODMAPs and are suitable for people suffering IBS trying out the low FODMAP diet.
