Close up of inside of cookie

I thought I would try something different and came up with some chocolatey choc-chip calci-cookies which are high in calcium and protein.

These gluten, wheat and processed sugar free cookies are totally yummy!


90g or ½ cup pitted Medjool dates

3 tablespoons of water

¼ teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons almond butter (or peanut butter)

¾ cup Calci-Balls mix

40g dark chocolate roughly chopped


Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit)

Place Medjool dates in a bowl and pour hot or boiling water onto the dates so they are just covered. Let sit for 5 minutes to soften them.

Drain water off the dates and place them into a blender (or you can mash with a fork). Add 3 tablespoons of water and salt to the mix and blend or mash until smooth.

Calci-Balls bag

Transfer to a bowl and add almond butter and Calci-Balls mix and stir until well combined.

Then add the dark chocolate and stir until combined.

Take spoonful’s of mixture and put onto a tray lined with baking paper. You can also press each cookie down gently with a fork before cooking or leave them free-form which is what I did.

Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Make sure you don’t overcook them as they can become a little dry if overcooked.

Let the cookies cool and enjoy!
