Why not try?

Cocoa nibs are natural cocoa beans, peeled, toasted and broken into small pieces.

High in energy, fatty acids and protein, cacao nibs are one of the best food sources of magnesium, calcium, copper, zinc and potassium out there. They are also rich in antioxidants.

Cacao nibs are very versatile, and delicious stirred into cereal, yoghurt, oatmeal, ice cream, smoothies and shakes. They work particularly well in baking recipes, like this one where the cacao has been paired with coconut. The biscuits melt in the mouth, and the nibs add a wonderful crunchiness. A special treat for teatime, packed lunches, or even as a gift.

In a medium bowl, whisk the sugar with the butter and egg until smooth
