Apricot and Hazelnut Cookies

Apricot and Hazelnut Cookies recipe.

Lounge with a nice cuppa. And, relish.

Moist squidgy creamy Apricot and toasted Hazelnut Cookies with blackstrap molasses, muscovado sugar, almonds, millet and oats.

This dish will eliminate any belief that vegan food can’t be super yummy.

Make this:

  • When the kiddies are being boisterous and getting them excited in joining in the fun of making cookie dough will have them yapping as they bite into these little treats
  • When you’ve got the old biddies over for afternoon tea and a natter and some cookies that’ll have them spilling the beans is much needed
  • When you fancy having a lazy brekkie treat before you have a thousand and one errands to start your day

Apricot and Hazelnut Cookies was inspired when playing around in the kitchen with friends visiting from afar and creating a little treat for a picnic and busy day ahead with activities.

I even made a dinky present – ideal for someone you may be dating! Apricots are an excellent source of Vitamin A and carotene.

Apricot and Hazelnut Cookies are vegan and gluten-free.
