Orange & Chocolate Cookies

Oranges and mandarins lose their a-peel after a while. Come on, that’s a good one. But even though they do get a bit boring in the fruit bowl, they are found in some of my favourite baked treats, and these cookies are no exception.

Makes: 24



  1. Place the almond meal, sugar, honey, egg whites, orange zest and baking powder in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix until well combined.
  2. Tip in the chocolate and mix through on low speed.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 160°C (fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  5. Roll the mixture into 24 even balls, then coat each ball in icing sugar.
  6. Place on the prepared baking tray, at least 2cm apart, and bake for 10–15 minutes or until golden. Cool on the tray for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
