Crunchy, delicious, and easy to bake Vanilla Cacao Nib Cookies. We could just call them “organic chocolate chip cookies” but they are much more than that.  This organic treat can’t be beat! Courtesy of Eden Health Retreat in Queensland

Notes
"You've heard about the health benefits of dark chocolate, but did you know that you can benefit even more by eating the beans themselves, with less processing? Cacao nibs are cacao beans that have been roasted, separated from their husks, and broken into smaller pieces. Cacao nibs have a chocolatey taste, but they're not quite as sweet as chocolate, which can make them more versatile." -- Teri Coles, Huffington Post Canada
