- Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
- Add all of the ingredients apart from the olive oil in a blender. Beat until they are completely broken down into a fine dust.
- Add the olive oil and pulse once or twice. The mixture should look like wet sand.
- Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
- Take spoonfuls of the mixture (30 g each) and deposit on the parchment paper. If it is too sticky and this is hard to do, wet it a little and spread it on the parchment paper. It won’t spread much since it doesn’t contain any butter or oil.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the edges become golden brown.
- Serve with a lemon glaze (optional). To make the glaze, combine 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 35 g icing sugar. You can also serve with melted chocolate.
This is a very “delicate” cookie! It is very flaky with a marvelous taste that you need to handle with care! You can add a little more flour to make it less flaky… but you will lose the hazelnut flavor... The ingredients need to be well balanced!
