Chocolate cardamom cat cookies are a delicious spiced chocolate cookie that is gluten free, made with almond meal, coconut oil, real free range organic egg, raw organic honey, cardamom and raw organic cacao.
Chocolate cardamom cat cookies are great fun for kids to make because of the cat shapes. My youngest son loves making cookies and these chocolate cardamom cat cookies are some of his favourites. He could not resist the urge to play with the cookies as I was photographing them as though they were real cats.
These spiced chocolate cat cookies make a delicious and healthy snack for morning or afternoon tea that is packed with protein from almonds and egg and low on refined sugar using a small amount of raw organic honey and sweet spices for sweetness. Chocolate cardamom cat cookies are delicious with a cardamom coffee or with a pear pickle sour cocktail.
Chocolate cardamom cat cookiesPrint Recipe
- 2 cups almond meal
- Pinch of salt
- 100 gm raw organic cacao powder
- 2 tablespoons organic raw honey
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled
- 1 organic real free range egg
- Seeds scraped from one vanilla pod

Preheat oven to 175 C
Mix the almond meal, cacao powder, salt and cardamom in a large bowl
In a small bowl mix the egg, melted and cooled coconut oil and honey along with the vanilla seeds
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until a dough is formed
Turn the dough out onto a sheet of baking parchment
Place another sheet on top and roll out the cookies with a rolling pin
When you have a rough rectangle approximately the size of a cookie sheet fold in the edges and re roll the surface until level
Remove the top layer of parchment (reserve for lining the cookie sheet)
Use a cat shaped cookie cutter to cut the biscuits into cat shapes
Repeat with the remaining dough – simply fold the remaining parchment paper in half over the dough and roll out again before cutting the rest of the cookies
Bake for 12-15 minutes
