  • 2 heaped tablespoons smooth almond butter (or sub cashew butter)
  • 3 heaped tablespoons Biscoff spread
  • 1 tablespoon orange extract (or sub with orange liqueur or grated orange zest)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100 g (2/3 cup) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Handful of candied orange peel, roughly chopped
  • 40 g (1.5oz) dark chocolate chips or chunks
  • Splash unsweetened almond milk (or sub any other kind of plant-based milk)
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon cinnamon/pinch of nutmeg


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Mix together the almond butter, Biscoff spread, orange essence, vanilla, orange peel and chocolate chips in a bowl
  • Sift in the flour, baking powder (and spices) and a splash of milk and mix again until the mixture becomes cookie dough-like in texture
  • Cover a baking tray with greased baking paper and use your hands to mould the mixture into 12 cookies of identical size – I find the best way to do this is to make 12 balls of equal size and then press down on them with a fork afterwards
  • Bake in oven for around 8 minutes
  • Leave to cool on a cooling rack before storing in an airtight container - keeps for a good few days
