Description

Healthy chocolate sandwich cookies consisting of a coconut filling sandwiched between two grain free chocolate cookies.


Ingredients

Scale

Cookies

  • 1 cup almond flour (90g)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (22g)
  • 3 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax*
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1-2 Tbsp water**
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Filling


Instructions

  1. Make the Cookies: preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine all dry cookie ingredients (almond flour, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, ground flax, and salt).
  3. Mix in wet ingredients: coconut oil, water and vanilla. Mix first with a spatula, then use your hands to combine the dough. If the dough is too dry, add more water (one tablespoon at a time).
  4. Roll cookie dough between two sheets of parchment paper using a rolling pin.  Roll to about 1/4 inches thick.
  5. Use a small circular cookie cutter (or the rim of a shot glass) to cut out circles.
  6. Transfer the cookies to a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Place the cookies in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 5-6 minutes.
  8. After baking, cool the cookies for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer them to a wire cooling rack.
  9. Re-roll extra dough and cut out more cookies. You should get about 48 miniature cookies (which will make 24 sandwich cookies).
  10. Make the filling: Melt coconut butter, then combine with powdered monk fruit. Place the mixture in a plastic bag.
  11. Assemble: Pipe the filling onto half of the chocolate cookies. Place the remaining cookies on top of the frosted ones, making a "sandwich".

Notes

*To make ground flax, I grind whole flax seed using a coffee grinder

**will need 1-2 Tbsp water.  Start with 1, if the dough is too dry add another.
