  • 1 tsp cocoa powder

  • 1 tsp mixed Christmas cookie-spices

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Mix all the ingredients and let the dough cool in the fridge, wrapped in a plastic bag for minimum two hours or overnight.

Sprinkle a suitable surface with some coconut flour or arrowroot and roll out the dough (only part at a time, keep the other part in the fridge meanwhile) to a thickness of about 1/2 cm.

Bake for about 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool down before removing them from the baking sheet.
