  •  Put all of the ingredients, apart from the chocolate, into a food processor. Whizz up until the mixture starts to come together, then empty out into a bowl.
  • Add the roughly chopped chocolate into the crumbed mixture and bring together with your hands until it forms a ball.
  • Divide the cookie dough into twelve evenly sized balls and place onto a baking tray. Using the palm of your hand squash the cookie balls down to make a flat round cookie shape.
